I believe in the concept of Intermediate Technology.
My definition is: 'using available tools simply'.
My philosophy is to take what is available, adapt it, look for the simplest way, instead of buying a solution. I enjoy the learning process and it is important for me to understand the technology that I work with. I build computers for fun and enjoy the process of learning the craft of photography and exploring the opportunities opened up by digital imaging.
My computers ( I have lots of them ! ) are all build from second hand components. Most run quad core processors and have 8gb of ram. The technology in most is between 5 and 10 years old, but they allow me to undertake all the work I require; quickly and efficiently.
