Hi there my name is Steven James Lear

I first became interested in photography back in 1985 when I purchased my first second hand 35mm film camera.

This was a Minolta x300s - Film Camera.

A few years later my Grandfather purchased for me a new

Nikon 801 Body - Film Camera.

A few more year went past when I was able to purchase the

Nikon F4s - Film Camera.

In the early days of my photographic experience I requested to be the school photographer for our yearly magazine. Which I was then granted special entry into the school grounds to work in the dark room on weekends for the magazine.

My first photographic competition I entered was for a magazine intermediate photography in which i won 3rd place​ and was published for the first time.

The photograph was a close up of a Queensland lizard.

In 1988 Later I entered 5 photographs into the Royal National Show in Queensland and was able to have 4 prints on display at the show the fifth failed due to the wrong specifications for mounting of the photograph.
