I have been interested in photography since childhood but got more serious in 2011 when I was going on safari and needed a better camera. I bought a Sony a390 DSLR but at the time did not really know what I was doing.
In 2012 I thought I would have a look at a camera club which met near to me so I went to Leeds Co-operative Photographic Society. This was on a competition night and when I saw their images I thought I was way out of my depth and nearly did not go back. Since then, thanks to their help and encouragement, my photography has improved and I have won many trophies.
In 2022 I was elected as President.
I also joined Castleford Camera Club in June 2023 as they have more practical meetings.
