Your Bio

My name is Richard Laing, I live on the South Island of New Zealand and I am trying to make great photographs!

I am a member of the Kaiapoi Photographic Club, a small but friendly club affiliated to the Photographic Society of New Zealand.

I started taking photographs at the age of 7 with a Kodak Brownie Reflex camera with Black & White 127 film. It was lots of fun and I have been taking photographs ever since, using 110 Instamatics, a Polaroid Instant 10 (photographs now very faded) and starting to use a 35mm SLR at University when I bought a second hand Olympus OM10.

I have been shooting Nikon since I bought my first new SLR, a Nikon F50 before making the move to digital first with a Nikon D50 and a Nikon D700.

I still use a film camera (Nikon F80) occasionally to remind myself how much I still have to learn about getting the photograph correct in the camera.

You can find more on my blog.
