Incorporating Wolverhampton Camera Club
My father was the one who ignited my passion for photography. When I was merely ten years old we would, at least once a month, turn the kitchen into the ‘dark room’ and my mum would stand guard making sure no-one would open the kitchen door. In time, my father produced fewer and fewer pictures and his passion for photography died down mainly due to the costs involved. With this, my own interest in photography was replaced by school, exams and eventually a career. There was no room for a hobby as I was young and still finding my own way. My passion was reborn after many years when I received a camera as a gift. The first pictures I took were of everything; my surroundings, people, animals, buildings - anything I could find or what caught my eye and there were no rules, no theme nor purpose. It was only when I finally became a little dissatisfied with that aimless clicking that I decided to discover more about this art form which I was enjoying so much.  It was this desire to learn more about photography that brought me to WPS. In this club I really value the meetings with people with the same interests as mine and the visits of professional photographers from which I can learn. Apart from that, I also value critiques of not only my pictures but also the work of my peers as through this I learn the most. My adventure with photography is only beginning and I’m excited to see where it takes me. At this moment in time I’m interested in all aspects of photography. Landscapes give me a sense of calmness; it’s only me and the great mother nature. However, I also like the dynamics of people and animals and the unique perspective of macro photography. It is all truly fascinating to me. I am aware of how much there is still left to learn and how long and challenging this journey will be, but I am certain I will love it every step of the way.
