Alan has been taking photographs for most of his life but until recently work has got in the way. Having now retired from cardiology and no longer taking grainy 35mm cine X-ray images of peoples' hearts he would like to think he has moved seamlessly into fineart photography. He will demonstrate how he selects an image from many hundreds that he has shot, how that image is edited, which paper is choosen for printing and how the print is mounted and framed. All of these can have a profound effect on the final photograph to hang on the wall. He will also have on display some images from a recent exhibition entitled "difference" He exhibits throughout the year in his studio and nationally.
