About

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 started this blog to document my 52 week photo project which I started on January 1st 2018. Having reached the end of 2018 I decided not to continue the project into 2019, for reasons that may become apparent as the year progresses. In 2019 I will still be posting recent work, just not as a weekly pick and various other posts during the week. I will continue posting from my archives.

A bit of history.

I got interested in photography in the mid 1970s, studied it in the late 1970s and have been a photographer ever since. First published in the early 1980s I have seen 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.
