About Peter Finch



My early past was in electrical engineering, having completed my apprenticeship at GEC Turbine Generators in Trafford Park, Manchester. I later left GEC for a contract position at BNFL, Risley, Warrington.

Decorating Supplies:

After the contract at BNFL was over, the engineering industry was in recession, so I decided to open a shop! Finchdecor supplied tradesmen, businesses and the general public with wallcoverings, paints and sundries for nearly 15 years.

In 2006, my wife and I decided to close the shop and sell the building after enduring many supplier problems in a depleted decorating market.

Photography Tuition:

From 2007 onwards, I specialised in sharing my evolved knowledge of digital photography by tutoring clients in their homes, offices and other pre-arranged locations, as well as writing tutorials and articles for my website.

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching photography and helping clients to become more proficient photographers. I also enjoyed learning about new products and researching fellow photographers' thoughts.

Electrical Technician:

As of February 2019, I work as an electrical technician at UPS-Trader in Warrington. It's a great job with lots of variety, and I love it!

I have now discontinued my photography tuition services and shut down my business website, PhotoBoffin.co.uk.

For me, photography is now simply a great hobby that satisfies my natural creativity.
