I’ve always dabbled in photography, but  never really called myself a photographer as such. To be honest I’ve never been fond of lugging the often heavy equipment around with me. I’ve owned a fair bit of it over the years, but it’s not really for me. I also tend to avoid the overly staged & set-up photography, I simply like to capture images as I stumble across them as best I can, often with my trusty camera-phone, or if I’m feeling particularly energetic, I’ll breakout the ever reliable Lumix TZ8 that rattles about in my bag.
