I have been a volunteer in the RPS for nearly four years, mainly as working the web editor and running the group's competitions. My passion for photography stems from my love of travel. In the pre-digital 1980’s, I took the Trans-Siberian Express from Russia to Beijing. I then made my way overland down to Hong Kong where I eagerly walked along Nathan Road darting in and out of its many camera shops, haggling for the best deal on an Olympus Trip 35.
I have organised and lead three Photography expeditions to Iceland for a charity called Blesma, the limbless veterans which included two blind vets, the aim was to ‘reframe their lives through a lens’. It was very challenging but a whole lot of fun!
