David Bastedo

I was first introduced to the camera and learned how to develop my own images when I was in grade 8 at school. I received a camera  and darkroom equipment that same year from my parents and as a result I spent much of my youth exploring and creating with a camera in my hand then in my darkroom, revealing the mysteries contained within.
