About

I'm Stuart Feurtado and welcome to my website. 

From the age of 17 or 18, when was given a Kodak Instamatic for a Christmas present, to today, I've had a keen interest in photography. This was centered around family and holidays for the most part but when the Kodak was replaced by a Mamya ZE (another Christmas present !!) I started to to try to improve my technical skills and creativity. Later became interested in astronomy bought a second hand Olympus OM1N and a couple of prime lenses and spent many a cold night taking images of the night sky on slide film. It was here that I learnt the value of preparation and patience. Setting up a telescope/camera  and tracking a single star with your eye hovering over a finder scope for several minutes is not everybody's idea of fun but .....

When the digital age arrived I resisted for for a while but eventually moved over and I'm glad I did. I'm also glad that I joined a camera club, the encouragement and enthusiasm of other members has been a great help along the way.  I have also joined the RPS and have gained the LRPS distinction. 

I'm married to a supportive wife and we have 2 boys. When I'm not out and about taking images I like to relax by watching rugby union (I played until I was in my 40's), walking the dog, listening to music and reading (science fiction and comedy).
