    I've been taking photos now for around four years. I began this wonderful hobby by going out on day trips with my dad Steve while he took some photos. After a while I asked him if he had an old camera I could borrow so I could take some pictures of... View this member

    My interest in photography goes back many years to when I was given a Kodak Instamatic as a present. I then progressed to Minolta SLRs, and used Minolta cameras for many years until that company’s demise.

    I came to Leek Photographic Club as... View this member

  • Babs Robinson

    Born and raised in Staffs, I have been interested in photography for most of my life, although this interest increased considerably when I joined Leek Club in 2008. Over the years I have photographed a wide range of subjects, but the ones I enjoy... View this member

  • Bernard Beech

    After being a 'happy snapper' for many years I started to take photography more seriously when I joined Leek Photographic Club about 12 years ago. Initially I chose Canon kit but for the last four years I have been a Panasonic micro four-thirds... View this member

  • Clare Beech

    I joined the club around 13 years ago and prior to that I had never picked up a camera. I was then fascinated to learn from the judges what makes a good picture in their eyes. For a number of years I have organised the club raffles and, until... View this member

    I grew up in the 60s, but I missed the swinging part: I was too young. My main memory of the 60s is that it smelled of fixer chemical (my dad was a part-time wedding photographer and developed photos under the stairs).

    I live in Longsdon but... View this member

  • John Coe

    After a visit to Kruger National Park in 2007 I was addicted to Africa. The more I visited the more I wanted my images to represent what I had seen. These trips re-sparked my interest in the Natural World and also sparked an interest in Photography... View this member

  • Len Claydon

    I have had an interest in photography for around forty years on and off, although I do not class myself as a photographer and certainly not a good photographer. I enjoy creating images that work and then printing and mounting the image which is... View this member

  • Lesley Lomas

    I've enjoyed taking pictures for years, but don't consider myself a serious photographer. My earliest attempt (as a teenager) was with a compact camera borrowed from my parents to take on a geography field trip in the Lake District. Most photos... View this member

    I joined the club around ten years ago after being impressed by the standard of photography displayed on the original club website. From the first meeting it was clear that this was an extremely friendly group and I was made to feel most welcome... View this member

  • Steve Geary

    You could say I'm a born again photographer currently undergoing a hiatus, not having done any serious photography since 2014. I returned to photography in 2009 when I received a digital camera as a present. I had learned the craft early in the 70s... View this member

    Hi, I am the Digital Competition Secretary for Leek Photographic Club. I think I got my interest in photography from my Dad, and have been taking pictures since the early 60s. I don't specialise in any particular subject, but I do enjoy capturing... View this member

  • Yvonne St Cyr

    I have always been interested in art and photography, but it was only recently (5 years ago) that I have had the time to persue my interest.  Whilst I like conventional wildlife photography, I prefer an artistic interpretation where art and... View this member
