B&W CHALLENGE – DAY 1: Fortune Cookie

Day 1 of my Facebook B&W challenge. My friend from years ago Wendy Ashton kindly nominated me. She is now in back in California, but was an occasional assistant for me years ago. I can’t find a link to a website for her work , so if you are reading this Wendy, send me a link and I will drop it in.

For anyone who hasn’t seen the challenge before, the idea is to upload a black and white picture each day for 5 days and nominate a new person each day to continue. This is pyramid selling of virtual silver halides that has a problem when the last photographer to do it realises there are no photographers left. Those of us who do not have restraining orders will then have to trawl around the schools and colleges seeking out virgin 5 day B&W challenge people to gratify our needs. Thank goodness there are still enough photographers left for me to find five.

Choosing five pictures is tricky, so I have narrowed it to only images I have never printed/published before that have been shot in the last couple of years, otherwise it is a bit mad!

I have nominated my first photographer Vassa Nicolaou (http://www5.clikpic.com/vassanicolaou/).

Good luck Vassa.

I am a photographer and photography teacher working in the editorial field and fine art area. I have a range of specialisms including animal and environmental photography, landscape and documentary, and portraiture. I teach in all these areas as well as in both analogue (film) and digital media including darkroom and Photoshop post production. I teach both in colleges and community based projects, but can also offer one-to-one teaching. I wrote the IOS, Android and Amazon Fire app to help calculate fractions of a stop when darkroom printing, follow tab to details. Use the Contact page of my main website to get in touch.
