About

I have been a hobbyist photographer for over 40 years and this site is to showcase my pictures. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society (rps.org/portfolio/david-scrivener) and have now achieved a Licentiateship distinction. 

My fleeting successes with photography have resulted in some pictures being printed in the photo press.

I have learned my photography from many sources starting with my father and magazines like  Amateur Photographer   and other publications that sadly, are no longer in print. My best tip is to look up the manufacturers of the camera that you use and enrol onto any workshops or training available. I have attended the excellent  Nikon School in London on a number of occasions and have learned to use the intricate functions of todays digital cameras and flash guns. More recently, following the purchase of FUJIFILM cameras I can thoroughly recommend the 1:1 introduction bookable at   FUJIFILM House of Photography  which is free. Get the basics right and you can concentrate on making an image.

To expand my interest I have attended workshops with various professional photographers and am pleased to say I have taken away some great tips and experiences. For street photography I highly recommend  brian lloyd duckett who runs Streetsnappers. This has a growing group of members and is a great community to learn from.

As a seasoned amateur I had not really considered my own personal development until I joined the The Royal Photographic Society  Obtaining a distinction is one of the hardest things that I have done in photography and I recommend this to anybody who wishes to improve their picture taking. The story of my journey starts here LRPS

Constructive criticism would be kindly received.
