My name is Stephen G. Hipperson. I live in Yorkshire. I’ve been a keen photographer for a number of years now and in September 2008 I completed a BA(Hons) Photography and Digital Imaging (First) at Leeds Metropolitan University under Ian Glover and his colleagues – with support from David Ward who helped me with my professional practice with input from Clive Minnitt and Phil Malpas. I had a great time doing the course and learnt a lot but perhaps more importantly I now have a greater breadth to my photography, which I can only thank these guys for.
I work in digital for the most part but often dabble with film – specifically black and white which I develop myself and then scan. At some time in the future I’d like to set up a small darkroom facility.
Most of my photography tends to be non-person based – landscape, architecture, nature, still life, etc. My main problem at the moment is trying to be a little more selective in what I photograph.
I welcome all feedback, though I prefer constructive critism rather than “that’s crap Stephen” . So thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you found something you can enjoy .
BTW the Header Image is derived from a black and white 120 negative taken with a pinhole.
I now run www.foldingup.wordpress for my dabblings with black and white film photography, which includes medium format as well as 35mm.
Also www.ecclesiarum.wordpress.com for my project with local parish churches, particularly those with medieval beginnings, which I find fascinating.
