I had always felt the urge to be more creative but it wasn't until the early 1980's that I found an outlet for it - photography. My father had been a passionate photographer in his early years and in the years leading up to the 80's I had always admired his black and white images. This is where the "bug" bit - I wanted to create my own photos.
So in the early 80's he gave me his old SLR camera and I started snapping away. Black and white was the only medium I wanted to use and I wanted to process it myself. I soon set up a temporary darkroom, equipped myself with basic kit and away I went. I couldn't stop - I was spellbound at the limitless possibilities!
And so it continued until around 2000 when life changes forced me to put it all on hold.It was during these changes that I somehow found myself becoming more spiritual in my outlook on life and quickly embraced an alternative viewpoint on life through mind,body,spirit and holistic interests.So much so that in 2004 I enrolled on a Reiki Healing course as I felt that was the path I wanted to take professionally.
Then in 2010 I was made redundant from my full-time job(and being the biggest life change of all)I decided that it was the push I needed to develop my creativity further and do what I really wanted in life! After much deliberation (and after hearing one night an other-wordly voice telling me to "prepare")I set about deciding what it was I would do. And then it struck me - why don't I resurrect what I thought was my long-extinct passion for photography and combine it with my spiritual interests?
Well, I did prepare and knowing that I had to embrace the world of digital I threw myself into it. I still believe there is a place for film-based processes and it is my ambition to go back to using that medium as a worthy companion to digital. I just need the space!
So in September 2011 "PositiveLife Images" was born and the rest they say is history!
I live in magical Cornwall,UK,a land of inspiration!
