She joined the RPS around 2007 and soon after became a volunteer with the Digital Imaging Group.
Carol’s is passionate about landscape, street photography and “capturing the moment”, especially in monochrome.

Paul Morgan LRPS


I got my first SLR camera as a teenager and joined Orpington Photographic Society. An MSc in Applied Optics from Imperial College and postgraduate research in imaging processing means that I have been working with digital images for over 40 years and I have 25 years experience of designing websites.

My photography is mainly sports photography, particularly rugby. I also enjoy architecture, street and macro.

I am a committee member and former Chairman of Maidenhead Camera club.

As well an LRPS I hold CPAGB and EFIAP distinctions.
