About the speaker:


Janey rediscovered her love of photography when the first digital cameras were developed around 1998. Working in IT she undertook the photography for Client's web sites, as well as developing post production skills using Photoshop. Following the sale of her business in 2001, she became involved in photographing yacht racing and corporate sailing events around the south coast of England and Europe. In 2005 she decided to retire "full time" and bought a 31' yacht and now spends her summer cruising  and her winters enjoying photography mostly in the UK, usually with an annual trip to warmer climes.
