Describe how you got into photography.
Since 8 years old I have had a camera. At a car boot sale I was selling an old film camera. No one wanted the camera but kept asking how much for the photos I had displayed showing what the camera could do. It was then I realised it wasn't the camera but myself that had taken these photos.
