I was born and raised in the Aussie 'bush'. I've lived and made images in many countries, 'but I still call Australia home'. I started making images when I was ~ 8 years old, with a family Kodak Box Brownie. From memory, I was 9 or 10 (not yet in high school) when I made my first contact prints from 6x9 negatives. One of my school pals could use his Dad's home 'darkroom'/bathroom. (Ummm, that means my first darkroom work was 60 years ago now ...Sigh...still so much to learn.)
I use film a lot - everyday or so - and develop all types at home - BW, C41, and (rarely) E6 . I'm also interested in various alternate processes, including palladium, bromoil etc.. Although I still have a darkroom facility, most of my printing now is via a scanner to a digital printer. Less brown on the fingernails, and fewer headaches. However, many alternate processes still require a darkroom. I shoot all formats from 110 sub miniature to 4x5. Mainly, my everyday shooting is 6x6 or 35mm. Truth is, I mostly use my HB or M3 for 90% of the images that I am serious about. I also love my Toyo 4x5. I 'play' with everything else. :-)
Of course, over my lifetime, I have used and then kept quite a few cameras. Others I have (ahem) gathered.
