John Edwin Skelton, born in York, Yorkshire UK. Took up photography as a hobby after discovering his Fathers homemade plate camera enlarger when he was around 11 years old.
As a group of teenagers in the mid 1960's filmed and edited 8mm productions in the Apollo Film Unit (Junior Section) based in Lady Peckitt's Yard cinema in York.
Two films have survived and are now in the Yorkshire Film Archive. Digital re-mastered copies are viewable on the Vimeo channel.
