Having first developed his interest in photography as a child, Gavin was given his first SLR camera for his eighteenth birthday. This was an Olympus OM30 which Gavin still has to this day although it is no longer used. His memory of this camera was that it took acceptable shots but that the focus mechanism malfunctioned within a couple of years.
Moving through other interests,photography took a back seat although Gavin let an active interest and kept up to date with the latest developments and advances in cameras.
His interest was reawakened in the mid 2000’s when gavin purchased his first DSLR. Since then gavin has moved on to various models of Nikon cameras and now exclusively shoots on Nikon other than the odd grab shot on his iPhone for personal use.
