Although I have always enjoyed photography, I became more enthusiastic (obsessed) in 2010 when I joined Dundee Photographic Society. The atmosphere of helpful support and friendly competition fuelled my desire to compete in internal Club competitions and in outside competitions and Exhibitions (Salons). I have been chasing distinctions and awards ever since. I shy away from commonly photographed subjects in favour of more unusual and wacky subjects and off-beat situations. I seemed to developed a bit of a thing for wacky selfies taken with a fisheye lens and bold processing (see my ARPS & CPAGB Galleries). I also like Street photography, particularly in foreign cities, and Asia in particular!
In my youth I was into punk music and skateboarding. I am pleased to say that the skate-punk ethos is still with me today and has a huge influence on my approach to photography. And life (see web link above!).
I also do Club talks and Competition judging throughout Scotland (and more widely throughout the UK via Zoom). My Club Talks (for a small fee) are listed in a separate tab above
