My initial interest was in landscape photography which arose from my love of travel. However, this has been surpassed by a passion for floral, still life and dance photography. The images here illustrate the full range of my interests.
I have been a serious photographer for about 15 years, since joining Exeter Camera Club, where I am a Past President. I gained my Licentiate of the RPS in 2010, after which I served on the RPS South West Chapter Committee where I shared the organisation of the Distinction Advisory Days for a few years. I run two of the offshoot groups of Exeter Camera Club; an RPS Group, which helps others gain their distinctions, and a Visual Arts Group where we take our photography just that little bit further. I gained my ARPS in October 2017.
I have been invited to numerous camera clubs in Devon, Dorset and Somerset as a guest speaker.
My ‘weapon of choice’ is a Canon 5D Mk IV, along with a variety of Canon lenses, my favourite being the 100mm macro. I like to print many of my images with a preference for Permajet papers, Photo Art Silk in particular.
I have joined the Fuji camp when it comes to travelling and use an XT3 together with a variety of lenses. The latest addition to my arsenal is a couple of Lensbabies which has opened up a whole new world, together with a Sony RX 100vi that resides in my handbag.
