I was gifted my first camera, a Kodak Baby Brownie, a long time ago and have loved photography since that memorable day.
Nowadays, 70 years later, I love sharing my photographic knowledge with budding and experienced photographers, inspiring them to take their photography to the next level.
Since 2009 I have literally helped 100’s of photographers understand their camera and its features and to enhance their photography skills and knowledge.
My courses and workshops are the foundation on which to build a future in photography, be it a hobby or as a profession. You will gain the confidence to know the best settings on your camera for any situation or event. There are four modules; “Your camera Functions and Features”; “Composition and Exposure”; “Photo Editing Workflow” ; and “Adobe Lightroom ”
During my working years I ran courses and lectured at Community colleges, Public school and a Private university. I also had a Video production company for 25 years.
I am a Lifetime Member of the Shoalhaven Photographic Club for services rendered and I have been the “Field Trip and Social Coordinator” for some time now.
I am a Photography Judge for the Federation of Camera Clubs NSW and regularly judge at camera clubs in NSW on their assessment nights.
My first DSLR was a Nikon D80, today I have a Nikon D750 with a collection of lenses, flashes, filters and many other accessories.
I also have WWC (working with children) certification WWC2448955E.
I enjoy also taking Photographic Club members away to various destinations each year. Since 2012 we have been to the, Red Centre, Flinders Ranges, Victorian High Country, Mungo National Park, South Coast Beaches, Broken Hill, Menindee Lakes, Mayfield Gardens, Western Victoria, South coast Forests, Outback Queensland, Snowy Mountains, Great Ocean Road, Lithgow, Capertee Valley, Blue Mountains, and Warrumbungle’s, to name a few. These annual photographic trips are free for all financial FCC NSW Photographic Club members.
