- Portfolio / Photographer Photobooth Portraits
My name is Colin Watkins. At 18 I studied photography for 3 years in the late 1970s at The Southend School Of Art & Design under the late Peter Fredrick ( who wrote the book Creative Sun Printing ) I then went on to work in advertising for a while followed by a stint making a living taking portraits. Then I never took a picture after age 28 till I hit 55 when I came back to photography as a hobby. I shoot black and white film and 10x8 positive paper with very little digital, not to be different but because that is what I know, also because i am colour blind and thats no good in the darkroom printing anything other than B & W. I have recently purchased a Pentax 645z but I tend to use as a manual film camera for shooting colour pictures. I am told the colours are exceptional.
