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 1970s, studied it in the late 1970s and have been a photographer ever since. First published in the early 1980s my photos have appeared in a wide variety of publications from scientific papers to calendars.
A bit of history.
I started this blog to document the 52 week photo project I started on January 1st 2018. Having reached the end of 2018 I decided not to continue the project into 2019, for reasons that would have become apparent as 2019 progressed.
However my plans for 2019 got changed quite dramatically after having to have treatment for a wound on my right leg at the start of the year. Less than two weeks after finishing treatment for the wound I had an accident which resulted in surgery, rehabilitation, physiotherapy and more changing of plans for the year.
Getting Back to Basics.
Prior to the accident I had put together a small back to basics kit of three manual focus prime lenses and started shooting some of my personal digital work the way I used to shoot film as a photography student.
As a result of the accident I have restricted movement in my right arm and shoulder. So my DSLR based back to basics kit has been replaced by a small, light mirrorless camera and a set of small manual focus prime lenses. It’s smaller and lighter than the film kit I was using 40 years ago.
A lot of the photos used in the posts are available to license and as prints through my Picfair store. Anything not available can be added to the store if you contact me.
