Mike Cook has been running his photography business Action Stills for over fifteen years but has been interested in photography and all its many facets since the age of sixteen when he was shown how to use a friends SLR camera and knew from that moment that photography was what he wanted to do. Mike has worked hard over the years to learn as much as he can about cameras and how to use them. Mike has gained most of his skills as a photographer by getting out and about with his camera taking photos and asking advice from other photographers and then putting that advice to work. Mike has been lucky to meet some great people and work on TV Theatre and Film over the years but enjoys all aspects of photography .
