Hello Joe Gillbanks,

we all have to start somewhere, and here you are!

I'm guessing you're a chap, Joe not Jo, so clothing should be incredibly easy for you to begin gently. If you attend events ( you can find many posted on Facebook), bring your camera along and all you need to wear if you're shy is: pair trousers (NOT denims!), a collarless shirt and a waistcoat - done. You won't stand out and you won't feel out of place either.
