I have been taking photographs since I was around 8 or 9 years old. I am member of Edinburgh Photographic Society
(EPS) and also Midlothian Camera Club
. I got my FRPS in 2012 and my EFIAP/s in 2015. I have over 1300 acceptances in National and International Salons and have won over 100 awards - medals, ribbons and certificates. I see prints as the finished photographic article, and projected images merely a step towards that end! Therefore I now enter only thise salons that have a print section.
I am a Scottish Photographic Federation judge, and also give talks to camera clubs - from Dingwall and Lasswade to Durham and Llandudno.
Currently I have four talks that are available to camera clubs - "Making a Silk Purse from a Sow's Ear" ,"In My Mind's Eye" , "KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid"
and my latest one "The Ones that got away."
This last one is a talk about my favourite images which never had much success in salons - or failed altogether. (I have quite a lot of these!!!)
If you would like me to give a talk to your club, contact me here
My photographic interests are mainly people, (candids and street photography) abstracts and still life, and my favourite format is mono print work.
