My full name is David Meredith, originally from Cheshire, England I have lived in Canada for over 20 years, most of them in Ontario.
I got interested in photography in the mid ’70s, studied it in the late ’70s and have been a photographer ever since. First published in the early ’80s I have witnessed huge changes in the practice and business of photography over the decades.
My first camera was a Zenit E around 1974. I soon started saving for a better camera and in 1976 I brought an Olympus OM1. Actually, I only got the body, there was a price increase imminent so I got the body before the price went up and then had to save for a lens for the camera.
For my commercial work I have used a wide range of equipment and formats over the years but probably 98% of my personal work has been taken with an Olympus camera of some type. I still have the OM1 I got in 1976 although it was pretty beaten up and ugly by the time it got retired.
