EYEWITNESS IN MANCHESTER IS A PRIME EXAMPLE of the pioneering use of digital photography to create a picture-based online magazine.

Most of the earlier photographs in Eyewitness in Manchester were taken with a Nikon SLR camera and captured on Jessops 200 ASA negative film, scanned using the NIkon Coolpix film scanner and enhanced in Photoshop on the Macintosh.

Early photos in Eyewitness in Manchester captured on film with the Niikon FM SLR camera and scanned on the Nikon Coolscan film scanner.

After experimenting from 1998 with a very basic Kodak DCS 100 digital camera and from 1999 with an Agfa E-Photo 1280, I began in May 2000 to use the Nikon Coolpix 990 which completed the transition to all-digital image capture and enhancement. This remarkable camera has provided thousands of superb quality digital images many of which are on display in Eyewitness in Manchester.

I first started using digital imaging methods in October 1994 whilst still working in the Middle East. Since then I have built up an enormous amount of experience and expertise, with a huge portfolio of images.
