“The best camera is the one you have with you.”Chase Jarvis
I’m Kev. Green Wyvern Photography is based near brighton and I shoot gigs and festivals around the country, regularly going as far as Cumbria and Wales. Plans were being made to shoot a European festival with a Spanish reviewer before Covid-19 put paid to that.
My photography journey started back in my teens with a 35mm film camera my uncle gave me. I progressed onto a Zorki 4K 35mm camera and used that for several years. My subjects were mainly architecture, people, the local port and landscapes. I developed black and white pictures and also used slide films. Other interests got in the way and I would take pictures of people and events on a variety of point-and-shoot film cameras until the beginning of this century, when I moved over to digital.
Other subjects I have shot include food pictures for a cake shop I co-owned and two cookbooks, informal wedding and party pictures, military pictures whilst I was a reservist and outdoor events, of which Hastings has many. For video, I have had a mini-DV camera for many years and have more recently shot video using the current digital SLR and viewfinder cameras.
My first digital SLR, a Canon 1000D with a kit lens, was bought in 2009 and I started shooting local gigs in Hastings the following year. My skills developed, using that basic setup until 2012, when I bought a 50mm prime lens and then a 100mm prime lens. Since then I have upgraded the body to a full-frame camera and have bought other lenses, studio equipment and audio equipment.
