your first 10,000 photographs are your worst

Wayne Worden, 1949
A life-long resident of Vancouver Wayne has owned cameras since his late teens.
Starting with a Kodak Instamatic and moving up to various 35mm SLRs and DSLRs.
For many years photography didn't extend much beyond travel pics of trips to the U.S., Europe, Asia, etc. taken for the benefit of friends and family.
A combination of early retirement, the advent of digital imagery, and an abundance of free time re-kindled an interest in trying to make better images.
Wayne is 'self-taught' with the added benefit of a few continuing ed courses and an untold number of online nstructional videos.
Street photography is a daily interest for Wayne's images. Other re-current subjects include architecture, industrial sites, public transport, public celebrations and musicians in performance. Travel to other cities is always an inspiration.
Influences and inspiration come from the works of many photographers: Saul Leiter, Roy
K. Metzker, Stephen Shore, George Tice, Tom Wood and many more too numerous to list.
80% of success is showing up
