“I started a serious interest in Photography back in the 1970’s when as a student, working in a bakery, I bought my first camera, a Rollei B35. I joined Bolton Camera Club also in the 1970’s where I learned to appreciate the fine art of monochrome print making.
After moving to Yorkshire in the 1980’s I joined Pontefract Camera Club and have been fortunate to serve on the committee for many years spending times as Programme Secretary, Competition Secretary and President. I have built a portfolio of print work over the years which I to take to other clubs as a YPU Lecturer. I also serve as a Judge within the YPU.
My main interests in Photography are Landscape and particularly Urban Landscape. Prints are my favourite media. I am also a regular attender at the Yorkshire Monochrome Group in Shipley, well recommended for any club member interested in monochrome.
I am a retired Pharmacist and had the pleasure of working with one of your members, Rob Swallow, towards the end of my career. My other interests are reading history, a little watercolour painting and I am a season ticket holder at Bolton Wanderers.
I visited York PS on an exchange visit in 2015 with monochrome prints, I will bring some more monochrome prints which I have done since then and a portfolio of colour prints. The Colour Prints have a general theme of landscape and low light photography. I will also bring a few older prints of Berlin taken prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall.”
