I joined the then Newark Photographic Society in 1976, after going to an evening class for Photography, learning basic camera and darkroom skills. Joined the committee in 1978 and was involved as Treasurer for many years.

A keen interest in photography for more than 40 years, first camera was an Ilford Sportsman, this was followed by a succession of film cameras, a Periflex Goldstar, Pentax Spotmatic, Mamiya DSX500, Canon A1, Canon T90, and finally a Canon EOS1N. Stayed with Canon and moved over to digital, starting with a Canon 10D and now use a Canon 5D.

Started shooting monochrome film and colour transparency, eventually dropped monochrome and moved on to producing Cibachrome prints from transparencies. Now fully digital and enjoy being creative with PhotoShop.

Have won almost every trophy in the Annual Exhibition, and been Photographer of the Year many times for Colour Prints, Colour Transparency and Natural History Transparency. Also had some success in national and international exhibitions.

I enjoy all kinds of photography, landscape, candid portraits, nature, travel, cities, etc, etc.
