I am a full time gardener by trade as well as a self taught photographer, I have dabbled for many a year but took a much more dedicated interest about 2010 having upgraded to a Digital SLR.
I have used Olympus and Nikon DSLR's, but when Fuji brought out the XT-1 I converted completely and am now a devoted Fuji fan.
Having joined the camera club scene and dealing with various roles within, I started to get interested in concept of judging and have been a provisional judge with the KCPA since 2013 and aim to be registered with SXPF early 2016 as well as gaining my accredited status with KCPA.
I have achieved my goal and as of 1st May 2016 am now an Accredited KCPA judge and also achieved Level 2 status with SxPF which is a major jump from just hoping to be being registered.
Next goal on list is to attend Photo24 London for third year running in June,
This is a great event held in London over 24hours non- stop
Update: not only did I get to complete Photo24 again this year but was privileged to be part of the organisers team, which allowed me to see things from the other side not just an attendee, so here to next years event
