John Sonley.
A retired oil, gas, petrochemical and shipping industries consultant, John Sonley has been a resident of Knaresborough for the past four decades. His interest in photography goes back to homemade pinhole cameras, through a Brownie Box camera – "without a doubt however, the best little 35mm film camera I ever had was an Olympus XA2, it went round the world with me0."
