I've been actively interested in photography for over 40 years, since I bought my first SLR, a Zenith E way back in 1967. Over the years I've progressed through various cameras Chinon, Nikon, and Minolta tthen went digital digital system Konica Minolta Dynax 7D, and now the Sony 580. I still occasionally use film photography, yes I'm still an occasional dinosaur and still take slides, and more to the point I think as long as it's available I probably will, for this I use my Minolta 7000.

Lke many photographers I shoot nearly anything, Landsape, Flowers and if I must give a preference it would be Ntural History, and fungi if really pushed

I'm a Member of the Royal Photographic Society, Edinburgh Photographic Society and North Berwick Photographic Society. I obtained my Licentiateship in 1999 and am still working on a panel for my Associateship, but now I have finally retired I might get down to it seriously. I tried it with my flower images but was told the subject is too common and not different enough. So just drifting along until I get inspired again

In addition to Photography I am a very keen fisherman and I enjoy both fly fishing for trout or big game fishing for Marlin, Shark, catfish, Skate etc

Always remember photography is fun, and should be enjoyed by either in the taking of an image or in the looking at it, the more you take the better you become. Club visitors should know that if a judge slates an image their opinion doesn't matter it is how you feel about an image that counts. If however, he likes an image then he knows what he's talking about
