I discovered the joy of photography as a child, thanks to the encouragement of my father. The advent of digital opened up a whole new world for me (as it did for a great many others). Today I love shooting life on the streets, at home and abroad, plus the activity in and around sporting activities.
For the technical minded out there, I don’t have a lot of gear. I shoot with a Pentax K-r, a wonderfully light and versatile DSLR, and a Pentax K-01 mirrorless. My favourite lenses are a 35mm f2.4 prime and 21mm f3.2 prime, 10-20mm f4-5.6 Sigma zoom and 55-300mm f4.5-5.8 zoom For photo management and post-production I use Apple’s Aperture almost entirely. Very occasionally I take a photo into Photoshop for a bit more work but these days Aperture is very powerful and so that is very rare. I also use Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro for black and white conversions During the day I’m a freelance copywriter (www.davidbrewster.com).
