Mike “Child of the 60s” McNamara has worked on Fixation’s sales desk for twenty years, but his career in photography started decades earlier and he claims to have spent most of his life with a camera in hand. He’s certainly familiar with both sides of the business, starting as a studio photographer in the early seventies, before going on to work for Wallace Heaton, Fox Talbot and Leeds Photovisual in the early eighties. He reckons one of the best things about working in the industry is that photographers are characters in themselves and like nothing more than talking and imbibing to a professional level; after a recent awards show he found himself in Harrow. (NB. He doesn’t live in Harrow). He still enjoys taking pictures, especially as the new wave of mirrorless cameras means they’re easier to cart around.
