David Heath

Born in Buckinghamshire in 1955, I then moved to Lancashire in 1964. My first interest in photography was at the age of fifteen, where in the basement of my parents house I experimented with developing and printing black & white films. 

My first camera that I could call my own was a Minolta SR7 which I still have today, this was followed by a couple of Minolta SRT101 camera bodies and an array of different lens. These cameras were to be the main tools of my photography up until 1999, and I still use them on rare occasions.

My initial interest was in Landscape Photography up until the early 1980's when along with a home made variable power flash head, and subsequently a selection of purchased studio flash heads and studio equipment my main area of interest switched over to Portrait and Glamour photography, shot both in the studio and outdoor on location.

Up till this point in time I was totally self taught from books, magazines and plenty of practice, but a desire to spend time with, and to learn from, other photographers led me to join a photographic club, and to enrol at a local college on a City & Guilds Photography course. The 'Colour Photography' course I wanted to do was full and I was reluctantly talked into taking a 'Black & White Printing' course. After a couple of years I finished taking evening classes at the college and in the process acquired seven City & Guilds certificates in various photographic modules, the most enjoyable of which was that first, reluctantly taken, Black & White printing course.

This resulted in a period where my photography for a good many years went back to being almost exclusively Black & White, covering subject areas such as portrait, still life, and my old favourite Landscape.

Space being a premium in the family home, and with two growing son's, the studio space and darkroom (in the spare bedroom) had to go, this resulted in me going back to mainly Landscape Photography shot in colour.

In 1999, I took my first tentative step into digital photography when I purchased a Fuji MX2900. This small 2.3 megapixel camera produced some amazing images, but the limitations of the minimal amount of manual controls on the camera soon led me to upgrade to a Sony DSC-F717 digital camera.

All my work is now shot on digital cameras, although I still occasionally use my old film cameras, mainly when experimenting with astro-photography.

Today I am usually to be found hill walking with my camera, younger son Michael and elder son Stephen, who has also developed a keen interest in photography. Our favourite place to be found, trying to capture that 'magical something' is the Isle of Skye, and the Highlands of Scotland.
