I am very pleased to have the opportunity to work as an instructor for the Ipswich Photography Group. I have had an interest in photography all my life and have embraced the advances in digital and its creative possibilities. Over a number of years now I have been building a portfolio in Landscape, Nature and Architecture while making plans to move my enthusiasm to a professional standard. I have recently gained a Diploma in Professional Photography and I have worked within the property sector while some of my pictures have been published in local print.
I was born and I have lived in Suffolk all my life and I know of many beautiful places on our doorstep. I will be happy to share and explore these places with you in the future, there are so many great opportunities, not just in summer but throughout the year. From photographing birds migrating to charming villages and from walking through Constable Country and along the Suffolk Coastline from the River Stour and North to the River Alde.
There are so many skills to learn both technical and creative. I hope you will enjoy my challenges, learn new things and improve your skills while most of all enjoying yourself.
