I have been interested in photography as long as I can remember.
I have always been on outdoor type of person, being a runner and mountain biker. So I wanted to shoot some of the views and scenery I was seeing during my outdoor activities, together with some of the sporting interests I have.
Being a member of a camera club helped me a lot as well. Having your work critiqued by more knowledgeable members of the club helps you improve quickly if you take on board their advise.
Recently I have been entering my work in the BPE organisation which again lets you see what other people think of your work.
I think I am very fortunate living so close to the Peak District as the photographic opportunities out there are tremendous.
I do like to try all the different genres of photography.
Recently I have been trying my hand at little sporting photography and I am really enjoying it, but is a real challenge.
Also I have been doing quite a lot of wildlife photography which again is a real challenge.
I have attained my CPAGB, DPAGB, BPE1*, BPE2*, BPE3*, BPE4*,LRPS, ARPS and I in the process of putting a panel together for my FRPS.
