Up until 2014 I had not taken photography seriously only taking pictures of kids growing up and family.
In 2014 I joined Stafford Photographic Society after being introduced to them by my daughter in law. I quickly realised that I was not very good and entering competitions was an eye opener to just how bad I was.
I persevered and leant a great deal from other members who were always willing to help and advise.
I quickly learnt that as an Engineer I was not very good at landscapes and arty type photography.
My main interests are Wildlife, Nature, Macro and sport and I am still learning.
If I have problems with anything a great source of information is YouTube which I regularly use.
When I joined Stafford Photographic Society I joined in Class 2 for beginners and Intermediates.
I have been in class 1 for 2 seasons now and believe my photography is much improved on when I first started in 2014 and this is down to the help and encouragement of the members.
I currently use the OM Systems OM1 with a selection of Olympus lenses.
