We've always had a 'thing' for photography.
We especially love the way it can transform the seemingly mundane into the extraodinary, if we just keep our eyes open to the world around us.

Before digital photography became standard, we gained a grounding in composition, framing, viewpoint, line, tone, texture, pattern, focus, movement and darkroom negative development with a GNVQ in Black & White Photography.
