When I specialised in architectural photography in the 80's I had need of a super-wide angle camera. The only ones available were very costly so I designed and built one. A number of different prototypes were built which all sold. This led to a small business, JTC (Jack Tait Cameras) in making a 6x9 cm super-wide cameras with rising front and a tracking viewfinder.

At various times since I have continued to make cameras in 6x12 cm, 5x4 and 5x7 inch formats.
In addition to camera design, I produced large photographic murals for architectural interior use, designed a Kodak calendar commemorating the Kodak Colour Scholarship scheme, and a cover for Esso magazine.
