About me ...
A Brief CV
My father introduced me to photography, and the darkroom, when I was about seven years old, and I've been producing pictures ever since.
I became actively involved in club photography in 1979, (as a member of Field End Photographic Society in Ruislip, Middlesex). I gained an Associateship of the RPS with traditional darkroom monochrome prints, a Fellowship with digital colour prints, and serve on their Licentiateship assessment panel. (I also provide advice at distinction workshops).
A busy national PAGB judge, and popular lecturer, I have visited more than 175 different camera clubs, and judged many regional, national and international exhibitions. (See the Judging & Lecturing page on this website).
I earnt a Distinction of the PAGB with colour transparencies, and was pleased to receive an APAGB award for my services to photography. I have also had success and gained awards in international exhibitions while earning my AFIAP distinction.
Now retired from working as an air traffic controller, I am a member of Amersham Photographic Society, and also assist with the running of the Southampton International Exhibition of Photography.
Since 2005 I have supported Paul Foley FRPS with Spirit & Vision Landscape Photographic Workshops. A recent initiative is Photo Knowledge, working with Leigh Preston FRPS, offering photographic tuition to camera clubs, groups and societies.
