I have been an enthusiastic photographer for nearly forty years. I started with film and slides during the 1970s at University where I mainly took sports photographs for sale to various college teams. I enjoyed slide work as well as black and white developing and printing. In November, 2010 I joined the Saltburn Photographic Society and rekindled my passion for photography. My very first camera was a second hand Zenit E camera and progressed through to Canon and Nikon film. I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D800 and D4 - so I belong to the dark side according to the Canon users. But I also have a Canon 7D Mk II which makes me a little grey I suppose.
Why Cossack Photography? Because I am half Ukrainian: the land of the Cossacks.
