Contax Symposium Mallorca


I attended the International Contax Zeiss Symposium at Richard Branson’s Hotel La Residencia in Deia, Mallorca

I was editor representing  Buying Cameras magazine.

The objective for Contax was to discuss the methods used for magazine lens testing and the quality of Contax lenses. They were not happy with the general reduction in magazine testing quality and were suggesting that the technical editors were no longer very technical and didn’t understand the finer aspects of lens performance. An interesting debate!

My first magazine cover

My first cover as an aspiring professional photographer. Thanks to David Kilpatrick Рsadly the remuneration was just a £20 book voucher, but nothing could put a value on the confidence this and a few pieces in Amateur Photographer ( thanks Liz Potter ) gave to push me to apply for a job on Practical Photography, which changed my life.
