Photographic Bio

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 taken since revolved around holidays or walking excursions, until I started travelling abroad with my ex-husband. He was a keen Aviation Enthusiast, and as many of our trips involved time spent in and around airfields, he gave me a spare Canon EOS 650 to keep me occupied. I found I enjoyed the challenge of taking fast moving subjects, and was pleased to find my images were better than I expected, and waiting for the slides to be returned through the post was always exciting.
Following my move to Leek in 2006, I joined Leek PC and developed more of an interest in Photography. Since becoming Treasurer, I've also been more involved in the running of the Club.
My first Digital SLR was a Sony alpha 500 which gave good results, but I swapped to a Nikon D300s about 4 years ago, and replaced that with a Nikon D7200 more recently.
