Jorn Holm-Pedersen

I am a retired crime analyst, before that I worked as external lecturer by Copenhagen Business School and Research Fellow by Roskilde University. I'm 75 years old and I'm genuine amateur photographer, self taught. I had my first camera in 1957, a Zeis Ikon 6x6, B&W, 12 images, folding camera! I loved that camera. Since then I have had different types of cameras among others Canon SLR and DSLR, Pentax SLR and Nikon. However, I found the DSLRs mounted with lenses too heavy so 5 years ago I switched to the mirrorless Fujifilm camera, and that saved my life as amateur photographer. I want to tell stories with my images and that is why street photography is one of my favoured disciplines but I have realized that is rather difficult. Macro photography is another of my favourite disciplines. I always shoot in JPEG because I prefer to spend my time behind the camera and instead of a computer screen. My expectation to join PSA and this dialogue group is to learn and be a better photographer. I live in Denmark in Frederikshavn a smaller city in the northern part of Jutland, I'm married have two boys and three grandchildren.
