About Me - Pete Barton Photography

About

Thanks for visiting my website.  I am a keen photographer based in the North West of England.  Iwas previously provided photographs for North West Counties Premier League side Ashton Athletic FC and have also provided shots for St Helens Town FC.  I  have taken photographs at Hindley ARLFC and Hindley St Peter's Cricket Club matches.  I have been published in 3 local papers,  The St. Helens Star, Wigan Observer and Wigan Evening Post.

I have always enjoyed photography, but only recently been able to take my interest further in the last few years when I attended a night class at Hindley High School.  I started the night class with a bridge camera and gradually upgraded to a Canon DSLR.   I was asked to start taking photographs for Ashton Athletic in the 12/13 season when the then manager, Jimmy McBride, noticed that I had a keen interest in photography.  You can see my photos for Ashton Athletic here:
