David Gleave

I took my first somewhat blurry picture about 70 years ago, using my mother’s Kodak ‘Box Brownie’ camera. And I was hooked. I saved up and bought my own camera around 1950 for about £1.50 – and discovered even more joys; developing and printing my own films, and building my own enlarger. I must admit that I much preferred working in the darkroom to taking photographs! There was something about the dull safety light, the smell of chemicals, and the joy of watching the first faint outlines of the image appearing on the printing paper….. By the mid 1950′s I was roaming the oceans of the world armed with my first ‘real’ camera, a 35mm Zeiss Icon ‘Contessa’.

I’m afraid that until very recently my photographs were merely records of places and people – nothing ‘artistic’. A couple of years ago I did an ‘A’ level in Art and Design (Photography) and this set me on the road to trying something different. The results are still very amateurish, but with the help and inspiration of Conwy Camera Club I hope to improve…….
