    Hello all. Just like to introduce myself.

    My name is Paul Olley, I'm 18 and from a tiny village in Suffolk in the UK. I have been interested in photography for around 3 years now and had the chance this year to study it for my A level. I had started out with my mums digital cam, not a great cam, mostly your bog standard point and click, but I always enjoyed submitting my work to Deviant art and getting feedback. I then became aware of other fantastic Photographers and invested in a copy of Photoshop 6, as it was then. I tried my hand with it and didnt really get on and I became inactive on DA for a long time and my interest wained. But after being given the chane to study the traditional methods at college I have enjoyed scanning my negs to show the world. Anyway, this is basically where I am now, and I still like to submit the odd shot from whereever I go on holiday which is just a bit of fun. Time at the moment is very precious as I am in my final year at college with a view towards Lancaster University, but, who I consider to be my 'Photography Father' Matt Perko introduced me to this site as I have now got myself a half decent camera (Canon 300V) and am looking forward to purchasing extr bits and bobs and Its always nice to hear other peoples views.

    Anyway, enough of the life story,

    Look forward to meeting you guys, I have heard alot about you.

    Paul
