Dave Ovenden
Artist | Professional | Photography
United Kingdom
I am passionate about all forms of Photography. main interests are Macro, Water, food and wildlife.

Outside of Photography I am involved in Owl conservation. Favourite bird is Kestrel. Favourite bird cry is Buzzard.

Brief History
I began photography way back in 1968 (age 12). in those days it was transparencies, developed at home. in the mid seventies as part of a government drawing office, I ran the photography department dark room, working in 35mm film. Some of my duties was to take presentation images for local paper, and to teach apprentices. I moved into the construction industry (1977), and found record photography a real challenge. Right up until 2004 I still used a dark room at home and began Digital photography in 1999. I miss film, there was magic watching an image developed. I retired from the Building industry in 2006 (aged 50) and set up my photography business.

Licentiateship with the British Institute of Professional Photographers (LBIPP) and a Licentiateship with the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS)

Thank you for visiting ........... Dave
