Incorporating Wolverhampton Camera Club
My interest in photography started at the age of 10 when I was given a Kodak Brownie camera as a Christmas present. The Bakelite casing proved less than robust and soon cracked but the experience of creating photo images proved life long. Following a lengthy period switching between a Eumig standard 8 cine camera and my father’s Kodak Retinette I bought my first SLR in 1980, a Yashica FR1, and then joined WPS as a rookie. The stimulation created by the interaction with other members and my transfer to the use of Nikon equipment encouraged me to join the Royal Photographic Society, obtaining a Licentiate in 1994 and an Associateship in 1997, both with transparencies rather than prints. I subsequently obtained a Distinction with the Photo Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) in 2004. I served WPS as Programme Secretary for at least fifteen years and had the privilege of being elected its Chairman for two periods of office. I have served as a lecturer to the Midland Counties Photographic Federation  (MCPF) for many years and have just presented my 350th lecture! My photographic interests are all embracing including my audio-visual work having won both the Midphot Championship and The Jessops Rose Bowl in past years. Finally my photographic philosophy is summed up by the three ‘L’s: Light, Location and Luck Happy snapping!
