My wife Marian and I moved to North Wales from West Yorkshire in 1979 and have run various businesses from a convenience store to a meat processing and chilled food distribution operation based in Rhyl, to an 18 bedroomed hotel in Llandudno. We have been running Rathlin Country House as a luxury 5 star Bed & Breakfast in Colwyn Bay since 2003.
I have always had a keen interest in photography, although until about 5 years ago it mostly revolved around the family and holidays. I now have more leisure time and am keen to develop my skills which is why I joined Conwy Camera Club in 2008. I like all forms of photography and always like to try new things. I particularly like landscape, wildlife and portraiture.
