A full on hard rock/metal nut since 1979, I live and breathe it and will get buried in my leather jacket bought for £10 in 82 and only held together with shoelaces now. I love photography – any type but especially gigs and lucky enough to own some decent kit (as in my two Nikon D610s). I feel naked without them!
