Inside this issue
Get it right in camera or fix it in post processing? It's the age old question and we have only one answer - both!

For this issue we've been talking to Brian Kerr, Dumfries born and now Cumbria based photographer with a passion for the hills. Can you tell me a little about your education, childhood passions, early exposure to photography and vocation? It’s fair to say that along with the majority of the population in the 1970s, our family only had instamatic-type cameras; expensive SLRs were something that other people had. I do remember borrowing my Dad’s Polaroid but I can’t have been more
