    I have taken photographs since the age of 11 and joined Stafford Photographic Society following my retirement in 2018.  I enjoy all aspects of the Society and find it to be a friendly, inclusive and enjoyable outlet For my photography.  I am a member of the Society’s Committee and undertake the role of PDI coordinator.

    I enjoy the majority of photography genre’s and currently shoot with a Canon DSLR and a Leica compact camera.

    Below is a gallery containing a selection of my images.

    My brother bought me my first camera when I was 7, but it turned out not to have any innards, so I didn’t get my first working camera until I had my first wages at 16. I dabbled a bit before we had a family but didn’t take up photography as a serious hobby until 2010, when I had my first acceptance in my first National camera competition. This spurred me one to improve my photography and earn some distinctions. My first camera was a Practica but I soon changed to Canon and have always been happy with my choice. I recently changed all my equipment to mirrorless due to the lighter weight, ease of use and exceptional autofocus, I am now the proud owner of a Canon R5 and R6 as well as a good range of RF (mirrorless) lenses which include telephoto, wide angle, and macro. I love all aspects of photography, including macro and still life, and love entering all levels of competitions as I believe it gives you an incentive to improve your photography. I know I try harder if I have competitions to enter.

    I enjoy all aspects of photography, but specialise in none.

    I enjoy helping others who want to improve their photographic skills. And, on that point, I firmly believe being a member of a good club helps improve your photographic ability and pleasure in seeing your images come to life.

    Personally, I still like to take part in photographic competitions from club level right up to international level and, I’m pleased to say, with some success, having gained my EFIAP/platinum, DPAGB, CPAGB and BPE3* distinctions. I am also a PAGB listed judge as well as being an MCPF recognised A-listed judge. On the camera front, I have recently ‘gone mirrorless’ and use both a Canon R5 and R6 camera along with a range RF lenses and love taking an image from button pressing through to print.

    I am also an affiliate for ON1 RAW photo editing software which we use for all our photo editing on images.

  • Howard Bagshaw ARPS MPAGB FIPF

    I started taking photographs as a teenager and joined SPS in 1990. I’ve been on the committee for much of that time, sometimes as Secretary or President, but mostly ‘dogsbody’. Though I enjoy most genres of photography, I have concentrated in the past 15 years on Audio Visual (AV). Through this interest, Carole and I have made many AV friends, and travelled, around the world, sometimes lecturing, sometimes judging international AV competitions. I am a PAGB AV judge and have been on distinction assessment panels for the PAGB and RPS. I was honoured to recently be awarded a Fellowship of the Irish Photographic Federation for my AV work. I’ve accumulated far too much photographic kit, but mainly use my iPhone and Olympus MFT systems.

  • Judi Dicks DPAGB APBE

    I joined Stafford Photographic Society in 2007 having taken voluntary redundancy from my job as Customer Service Manager at the Co-operative bank, looking for new challenge. I soon got hooked and started entering competitions, both internal and external, and took on the role of External Competitions Co-ordinator on behalf of the society. I have learnt so much from the society and it’s members, helping me to obtain an ARPS – Associate member of the Royal Photographic Society. A DPAG distinction award from the Photographic Alliance of great Britain and an Associate of the British Photographic Exhibitions – APBE I particularly enjoy coastal scenery, urban landscape, street and candid photography along with garden and plant photography – basically I enjoy being outside so not keen on shooting in a studios, I also enjoy my sleep too much to catch the early morning landscapes. I currently us an Olympus micro four thirds camera and lenses
