About Me

Welcome to my website

Michael Wake Photography

Hi, I’m Michael, a Fuji shooting photographer based in Sunderland. My photography journey started some twenty-five years ago, attending evening classes and discovering the world of developer, fixer and Ilford HP5 black and white film. Armed with my classic Pentax Super Me, I ventured out to capture a masterpiece. Sadly with no Youtube tutorials, and only twenty-four exposures it usually ended badly, but I had fun.

My passion for photography was then put on a break for the next Twenty plus years but then in 2019, the passion returned. Armed with the credit card I returned to Jessops but this time it was different no chemical smells, no row upon row of used cameras and lenses just glass cabinets filled with the latest and greatest tech. 

It’s now 2022 and I’m still shooting away but with far too many lenses bought, far too many Youtube tutorials watched, not enough time, and sometimes still no idea what I’m doing but the passion is still strong and getting stronger.
