I have always had an interest in art and photography and dabbled in both over the years. I purchased one of the first Canon DSLR’s that came out and spent many years happily snapping family and travel pics - relying heavily on the ‘Auto’ setting as I hadn’t had the time to learn more. In 2019, I left the corporate world and ‘retired’ in Somerset. Finally having time to dedicate to learning more about photography, I enrolled in an Open University course run in partnership with the Royal Photographic Society. I was hooked!
I took over as the Chair of the RPS Women in Photography group in October, 2021. We are building up our programmes and exploring new projects that our Members can participate in while also trying to encourage others to join up. It’s an amazing opportunity to meet so many talented women from all walks of life.
