When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.  When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Ansel Adams.


I was born in Hartlepool 1954 and have lived there all my life.  I'm a joiner by trade and have worked all over the country since leaving school.  I've always been interested in art and photography and hope to progress this further when I retire in 2019.  My first cameras, back in 1983 were an Olympus OM10 and a OM1n which I still have .  I decided to jump into the modern era in 2014 when I bought my current full format camera, a Nikon D610. I use this together with Nikon 16-35, Nikon 70-300 and  Samyang 12mm lenses.  Since then I have won an award in the 'Capture Yorkshire' contest for my Skyfall and Staithes images.  I find photography a great incentive to get out and visit some fantastic places. and I like to travel around the country at every opportunity.  Always a keen artist throughout my school years, I try and incorporate this into my Photography whenever I can.

Regards, Tom Bell
