Peter Burns IT Engineer and Photographer
Oh, hello !
I didn’t see you there but if you’re on this page, I’m hoping you have been enjoying my photographs and are now interested in learning a little about me (Peter Burns), so here goes.
Born just outside of Swansea in South Wales, I’m currently employed as an IT Engineer within the NHS during the day and a keen amateur photographer outside of work hours.
I honestly can’t remember where my interest in photography began, possibly with a school trip to Switzerland at the age of 11, with an Olympus SLR film camera, which had belonged to my late grandfather. The intention was to be able to take the memories home with me, whether they worked I can’t remember. I do recall bringing home several used films for developing.
For me, part of the attraction is being able to capture and share the beauty of the world around us, from glorious sunrises and stunning sunsets, the chaos of flowing water and waterfalls and, being a PADI certified diver, the additional opportunities of capturing images of life beneath the waves.
What’s in the bag ?
My main kit is based around the Pentax K3 system with assorted lenses for landbased photography.
For underwater and diving shoots, I use a Fuji with a housing and also an action cam for underwater videography.
