Callow Sunset

 

My name is Alistair Bates and welcome to Silver Black Media, the way that I am spending my time in semi-retirement.
 
I have been making amateur videos since way back in the 1980's starting with a Betamax camera and Sony F1. I have now moved onto using a range of cameras to create multi-camera videos.
 
I took up taking still images in about 2010 and although I now have a much better idea about composition I am still very much a hobbyist.
 
I have also been playing with computers since programming an American Football simulation on a Texas Instruments early computer. I have progressed through to using applications, databases and recently websites with a range of different tools. I am playing with this site to use different templates.
 
I have also developed sites for local charities and organisations.
 
This site is an attempt to link up a range of interests and other sites that I have added content to over the years.
