1979 Summer at Butlins
My first job as a photographer was at Butlins holiday camp in 1979. I travelled there on my own. Knowing no-one I was nervous travelling to Minehead.. But it turned out to be a chance to practice my photography and an idyllic summer. These are a few of my pictures. At the time I was switching between colour and black and white. The black and white wasn't developed until the end of the season 5 months later. The colour prints were printed on cibachrome paper. - A difficult chemistry that is now obsolete. Ilford always claimed that cibachrome was archival and it is true! Almost 40 years later the colour still looks perfect.
