Final hand in for Print Comp 5 & Mono PDI 5

David Jordan FRPS

I was born in Yorkshire, but now live in Norwich with my wife Joan.  My first SLR, a Practica Nova 1 with a Zeiss Tessar 50mm f2.8 lens, was purchased in 1974 and I joined my first camera club in 1978 and been involved with them ever since.

I have always had a leaning to more graphic and design inspired images, but do enjoy attempting other genres of photography. I love landscape photography, but I am not always disciplined enough for those...
