David Norfolk ARPS
I have been an amateur photographer for many years, and was taught colour darkroom in Australia. I now take photographs professionally for my articles and work digitally - the abstract photography I like is much less clumsy on the PC. I have achieved my ARPS Distinction with the Royal Photographic Society.
Contact me if you want to buy my mounted, hand-printed images. Reduced-size machine prints of some of my work can be obtained through my website; and custom prints ordered there.
I like the work of William Eggleston and finding beauty in the mundane; I'm inspired by George Pollock; Lee Miller; and Man Ray (amongst many others) - although, I'm really trying to make my own style. I strongly believe that the camera is most fun when it is "telling lies" (although however weird the photo, it should - I think - always be based on light from the real world as captured in-camera). Paradoxically, creating alternative realities is much harder in these days of Photoshop than it was when I just had to re-photograph my darkroom creations onto Kodachrome in order to achieve "reality".
Find me on Flickr as David_Norfolk - I run the "Friends of RPS-WR" group for the RPS Western Region (and I'm also on its committee).
I have a BSc in Chemistry. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS and ARPS), the Britsh Computer Society (CITP), the National Union of Journalists and the Institute of Directors.
