Hello,

and thanks for taking the time to look and maybe comment on some of my pictures . A little about myself. I am a 58 year old Brit living in Norway since  late 1993. Married for the past 24 years to my Wife Eli. We have a son and a daughter. My Photographic interest started when I was young. However it didn’t really get going until the mid 80’s and since then has continued. I shot mostly film until recently when I purchased a Nikon D800. I have however kept my film cameras as at least 3 of them I have always wanted to own and I haven’t got the heart to sell them.

My current cameras are:

Leica MP
Leica M9-P
Nikon D800
Nikon F4s
Nikon FM2
Yashica-C TLR
Hasselblad 203 FE
Vermeer 6X17 Curved Plane Pinhole camera

Lenses
Summilux 35 mm f1.4 ASPH
Summicron 90MM f2.0 APO ASPH.
Summilux 50mm f1.4 ASPH
Nikkor 20mm f2.8 AIS and a
50mm f1.8E and a
100mm f2.8E.Nikon 14
Nikon 14-24 f/2.8G ED AFS
Nikon 24-70 f/2.8G-ED IF AFS
Carl Zeiss Distagon CFE 40mm f/4.0 FLE
Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8 FE
Carl Zeiss Planar 110mm F2.0 FE

This list may seem that I’m only interested in the gear. However The image is the most important thing whatever it is captured with.

Thanks for your time :0)

Please have a look at my Photostream on Flickr and feel free to leave coments here on my blog or on Flickr.

  1. You seem to have a lot of Nikons. I’m a Nikon user too ^^ I love your blog, it’s inspiring, especially for a n00b like me. 🙂

  2. I can remember you, David, because “kilt” translates to “killed” in USA Southern rural dialogue. I suppose I’ve heard the past tense as “kilted”, but I don’t recall. I am taken with your b/w photographs, of course. As you have undoubtedly observed, I am not a photographer, but I like to play at it. Thank you for your kindness in visiting me. I look forward to enjoying your posts here!

      1. Of course. Why didn’t I understand the origin of it? May I suggest that you link your blog and other social networking perches to your Gravatar? I had to Google “kilted1” to find you. People can click on your
        Gravatar and access your blog immediately. (It was worth the search effort, by the way…)

  3. Really interesting reading about your progression and acquisition through cameras a great read! I too have dreamed of owning a Blad and was actually lucky enough to be lent a 500cm for a few months – that camera convinced me to get one one day, but will do more research as to which one now! Thanks for such an informative post.

  4. Hi David,

    Wondering how you would feel about me using your image for a school production poster? It is the image of the Sanitorium Exterior in black and white. I am from a High School in Melbourne, Australia and we are doing a school play of Dracula. Love your image and we would be able to pay small fee and we would acknowledge you as the artist of the image. Please let me know how I can send you a personal message with our contact details. Thanks,
    Karen

  5. Hello how are you?
    Your work seems Wonderful
    I see you have a film camera.
    I have a Nikon F2s, but I am just learning to use it. Newly revealed two rolls and the results were not as expected, but keep trying.
    I also bought a Nikon FE
    At one time I tell you as I continue my foray into the analogical
    See you
    Tati
