I commenced my photography learning journey in 1951 when my parents gave me a Baby Brownie. Soon after, they purchased a home developing kit and together we learned to make contact prints using sun as the light source. I have been a member of camera clubs since 1971 and was President of the Canberra Photographic Society for eight consecutive years in the 1990s.
I joined the Australian Photographic Society (APS) in 1976 and have been actively involved ever since, including serving two terms as APS President. I commenced exhibiting colour slides in competitive National Exhibitions in 1977 and Internationals in 1991. More recently I have used digital images. My acceptances eventually resulted in my being awarded an AFIAP in 2008 and a FAPS in 2010. I have had illustrated articles and portfolios published in various books, magazines and newspapers.
I have lectured on photography to community and photographic groups, judged some competitions, and participated in numerous public group exhibitions. Over the years, I have photographed many and varied subject matters and used various equipment and techniques. Sixty two years after it began, my photography learning journey continues as I still strive to do better and try new things. The images displayed here are a selection of my work taken or created in recent years.
