Bio

My background is basically self-taught and I have enjoyed learning more through various camera clubs. One of the biggest influences on my photography was through the guidance of Mrs. Alice Stark who formed a small camera club called Peterborough Colour Study Group, of which I was a member for many years.

I resisted going to digital as I thought it could never compare to 35mm photography. After switching over to digital about 10 years ago, I have never looked back. I don't alter my images on the computer, other than enhancing i.e. contrast, cropping etc., much the same as darkroom work. I am a firm believer in trying to achieve the best possible image in camera and the use of a tripod.

My primary subject matter is definitely outdoor photography. I do a lot of canoeing and camping in order to discover unique images. I take photos for the enjoyment and diversity it offers. All types of photography intrigue me, and I am lucky enough to have achieved success with my images which has rewarded me with a great amount of pleasure. This in turn has enabled me to make many good friends with similar interests.

Using the Photo Viewer on the members' pages
Hover over an image to access controls.  You can also click the thumb to view a particular photo. Move your mouse away from the image to remove the controls.

Members who want their own page should submit 8 photos (although a few more is OK if you want) and a bio to the Communications Director.  Photos should be at least 400 pixels in each dimension - more is better but they will be reduced to 400 for this page - although you can request larger if you like.  All photos the same size works better in this viewer but it's not critical.
