PHOTOGRAPHY by donhammondimage.


         ABOUT donhammondimage ...

   I have been involved in photography for some 45 years, my first
   contact with the "art" being a Box Brownie camera at the age of 8.
     After progressing into the 35mm format I worked for a number of
   years as a professional photographer. Whilst the increased knowledge
   of photography and darkroom technique was of considerable value, the
   subject matter did not excite me.
        It was my affinity with my surrounding environs that held far
   greater appeal. For the last three and a half decades, adventure and
   curiosity have compelled me to explore the Far North in fine detail.
   Ocean & Coastline, Landmass & Forest, each a myriad of images.
       The passion for photography has lead me to a past era of images
   left by earlier predecessors, their work illustrating a similar desire
   to record the surroundings of the Far Northern region. In a realm of
   cumbersome cameras and glass plate negatives the images are a
   testimony to their skill and own affinity felt for the life and times in
   which they lived and worked.

            I have presented five Exhibitions and had work published in various
   media and formats. 90% of my images are from colour transparencies
   and B&W film stock, the bulk of which were taken with Nikon F2's
   and Nikkor lenses. Processing, printing and toning done in my own
   darkroom facilities.

  Thank You for visiting, Don Hammond.
