Hi, I'm Rick from Leeds, Yorkshire, in the UK. I am in my 60's and have been photographing for about 50+ years. I got serious in 2012 and bought a Canon. When the X100s was released I bought one for street photography, which is what I was developing a real interest in, and fell in love with brand. It felt like a real camera rather than a menu driven digital device. Since then I have purchased two X-T1s and an X-T3 with five lenses, the most used of which are the 16-55 and 50-150.
I am still learning my craft and doing (free) work with a view to doing it part time paid when I retire. However, I'm sure it will always be more for fun than the money. I reckon I will always be spending more than I earn on the hobby.
One of my photos was chosen by Rankin, out of 11,000 submissions, to go on the front cover of a BBC Children in Need photo book, 'This is Britain' in 2017.
I love shooting people, sometimes buildings, and have developed my own website. https://mhbphoto.uk
