I was 'born and bred' in Devon and I am very proud of this beautiful county with Dartmoor, picturesque countyside and the coast, all within easy reach. I have had a camera around my neck from my early years starting with a Brownie Box.
I have become a serious photographer since joining Exeter Camera Club. I enjoyed my years as Membership Secretary and Committee member.
I was enrolled as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society in 2011.
My joy is to blend my photography with Art. I am a keen iphonepgrapher and enjoy shooting with an iPhone 7 plus and have won competitions with iphone images. I also use an Olympus OM-D-E 5 MK 11 with various lenses.
I have recently become addicted to the Lensbaby range of creative lenses.
All of my images are edited and processed using an Apple iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil for drawing and painting.
More recently, I embarked on another challenge of photomicroscopy and was successful in March 2018 to be enrolled as an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.
I have taken part in exhibitions and given presentations to other camera clubs.
