First drone flight

Photo and video

My father started his professional life as a news photographer for the Daily Mail in Glasgow, Scotland, so I was exposed (pun intended) to the darkroom and the smell of developer early.

With a crack photographer around the house, it wasn’t difficult to get bitten by the (shutter)bug. From early plastic 120 film cameras, to the 35mm SLRs in Journalism school, and the recent digital SLRs, photography has been part of my life since the beginning.

I had my own photo business for about nine years, mostly shooting weddings and commercial subjects, but I also managed to get onto the motor racing circuit for a few years too (but not munch money in that!).

Lately I’ve started doing some video and am learning to fly a drone (only crashed it twice so far!).
