About Me - Finepiks

My name is Mark Hammerschmidt and I was born and grew up in rural England. After serving in the British Army as a dental technician for many years I was very fortunate to end up living and working in London until 2011 when I moved to Hong Kong, where I'm now very happily settled together with my ever patient wife.

I've been interested in photography since a young boy, taught by my dad, taking photos with a hand me down 1950's Agfa Isolette and his Minolta SRT101, developing and printing monochrome film in a tiny little darkroom that my dad had made in our home.

Since making the switch to digital in 2002 I am now embracing the extraordinary capabilities of the current Fuji X-Pro2, and their outstandingly sharp Fujinon lenses. I like to take mainly architectural photographs but I try my hand at pretty much anything as you'll see when browsing through my galleries. I try to update the site when I feel I have something worthy of displaying!

However the film bug still bites! I've recently purchased a 1957 Rolleiflex and am getting the itch for a classic Nikon FM2n now that my beloved Tri-X film stock is here to stay! So I hope to have something else to show soon!

If you're located in Hong Kong why not come along and join the Cathay Camera Club where I'm honoured to be the Chairman!
