Jerome Argue

Jerome Argue is an avid amateur photographer, having started in the ‘70’s on a Kodak 110 instant camera and progressed from there. In his time, he’s done weddings and other social events, but his main interests are birding and nature photography.

Through trial and error, as well as some training along the way, Jerome has worked out the ins and outs of cameras starting with film, moving to digital and then resurrecting his old film camera, to work in both media now. His engineering background predisposes him to the technical elements of photography, but the creative side is an essential element to composition, something that he constantly looks to improve in his photography.

His focus is on the front-end effort; getting exposure, focus and composition right out of the camera rather than relying on post-processing to achieve a result.
