I was born and bred in the beautiful county of Devon, with the coast and Dartmoor within easy reach.
I have had a camera around my neck from the age of 10 starting with a Brownie Box camera.
I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society and after a successful submission in 2011, was enrolled as a Licentiate.
My joy is to blend my photography with art and be creative. My favourite genre is Visual Art.
In March 2018, I embarked on another challenge of photomicroscopy and after submitting a panel of 15 images , I was successful and enrolled as an Associate of The Royal Photographic Society.
I am a keen iphoneographer with a large proportion of my work being shot on an iPhone - currently iPhone 12 pro. I have won several competitions and in 2021 was awarded a 'Selector's Ribbon' for an image shot and edited on the iPhone and iPad Pro.
2021 was dedicated solely to shooting with my iPhone.
In addition to shooting with an iPhone, my Olympus OMD E 5 MK 11 with various lenses not forgetting my Lensbaby's , completes my kit.
After enjoying a few years of entertaining camera clubs, I have now retired from giving talks and presentations .
