Your Bio

Hello and welcome, my name is Stewart Bourne, 66 years of age and retired. I live in a small town, more or less in the centre of England. My working background is teaching, psychology and educational research, although I have done other things in other lives. I am really interested in creating images that hint at wider meanings, or are just a little intriguing. Fundamentally much of my photography is down to curiosity, I want to see what life looks like when considered in images, and I am reaching that point when I want to know how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Hope that this doesn't sound too precious or grandiose, it's not meant to, I got over myself a long time ago. Although I have recently gained my LRPS I would still describe myself as a relative newcomer to photography with much to learn and a journey to undertake.
