My photographic story started when I was a child and was given a simple Kodak camera. I have gone through the whole range of mediums, starting with black and white film, progressing to colour film and in the seventies settling with slide film as my preference. Using a Minolta 1000 I went on the holiday of a lifetime, driving and camping around Norway for 4 weeks, with 6 rolls of 36 exposure slide film, and I used the last exposure on the boat coming home. This started my love of landscape photography, and explains why, even now, I am conservative with the number of images I take, making each one count. Coming from slide photography I was an early convert to digital, in the early nineties.
I joined Honiton Camera Club about eight years ago, and the RPS a year later. For the last four years I have been Secretary for the WCPF, a post I gave up recently, which has freed up enough of my time to be able to offer my services to the Landscape Group as the treasurer.
