My name is Martin, I was born in Ilford. I lived and worked in East London up to two years ago when my wife and I moved to Frinton-on-Sea in Essex. UK.

I have been taken pictures for a long time but in 1976 I got my first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic and thee prime lenses.

In the early 80’s I took a GCE in photography. Though the latter 1980’s and 90’s the cameras barely saw the light of day and then Digital came along and it kick started me back into the hobby.

In 2002 I joined my first Camera Club Woodford Photographic Society. This is where I met my now Wife who is also a photographer.

Around 2005 my wife and I took our City and Guilds exam in photography which we found very interesting as we had to go back to using a film camera for the course.

In 2006 my wife and I joined Upminster Camera Club and were mainly active in the AV side of things.

Since we moved to Frinton we joined Clacton Camera Club which we both enjoy very much.
