Your Tutor for the day is David Robbins. With a love of photography that spans 30 years David developed his passion into a career. Beginning in photo retail before starting his own photography business he has always enjoyed the more technical challenges of photography. His love of sharing knowledge led to him teaching photography first to teenagers before moving to Practical Photography magazine and then to Nikon UK.
