Philip Preston Short Bio

I guess it started when I was about 11 or 12 years of age (over 50 years ago) and my dad had a Kodak Sterling film camera. Using one of its black and white negatives, and some photographic paper, we went outside to make a 'contact print' by exposing the photo paper to daylight, after which we went back into the house to develop and fix the image.  I have no recollection what the image was, but that moment is still my first memory of the magic of photography.


Fast forward five decades. I am now retired but photography is still an important part in my life. In terms of subject matter, most photographs I take these days are landscape, architecture or travel related. My favourite images are available for purchase as prints through Fine Art America/Pixels. I am also a contributing photographer to stock photo agency Alamy, where my Rights Managed images have been purchased and licenced for a variety of uses including newspapers, magazines, websites, calendars, and books.

About 4 years ago, I switched from Canon to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras, and my main camera now is a Fujifilm XT2 with various Fuji XF lenses.

For me, photography is essentially still a hobby, but all these years later, it still produces occasional moments of magic.
