Hi Sue

Chris is right - a little more info would be helpful - what kind of photographer/work, and what sort of information do you want?

Does it need to be, say, fine art photography or would someone who does PR work (and therefore has their stuff printed in newspapers, magazines, etc) do...? What level of detail is required?

Man Ray I heard once attended a month long house party in the house opposite the Heron Inn in Malpas, Truro. I mean the house over the river.

(Sir) Humphry Davy (bart.), chemist and physicist originating from Penzance ALMOST invented photography. He experimented with light sensitive materials, but never hit on a way to 'fix' the results. It was William Henry Fox Talbot who hit on the method for chemically 'fixing' images, and went on to experiment with film and print photography as we know it.
