Photography for me started in 1979 when I was a member of the then current British Skydiving Team. Most of our members lived in a house in Hendon, London and the majority had cameras. Being a team player I decided to join in and bought my first, an Olympus OM1 and to this day I still have it. During those early years my photography was 35mm slide based and my interest lasted for about ten years. It would not be unusual to pay us a visit in Hendon to find we had a slide show going of the house occupant’s latest efforts. I picked up a camera again around 2006/7 when I bought my first serious Digital a Canon 400D and developed an interest in taking shots of people. Much of my work is Theatre and Live Performance based with Portrait thrown in for good measure; I am willing and very keen to try other areas to help increase my knowledge base. I do have an ambition to turn professional but realise that I need to learn more before I can take that plunge. The club has a wealth of knowledge and expertise, I enjoy the feedback and constructive comments of my work from club members. As a first step on that journey to Professional status I have created my own website at http://click2capture.co.uk where you can see more examples of my work as well as those found in my club gallery. Hope you enjoy my and the other members work… PS: If you have interests in photography why not pop along for a chat, the kettle is always hot for tea and coffee and if you are lucky there might even be some Hobnobs?
