I have been a member of Smethwick Photographic Society since 1965. When the society decided to run an International Colour Exhibition I became involved and am still serving on the Exhibition Committee 41 years on. My interest in exhibitions is not only in their organisation, but also in entering them. As a keen exhibitor myself, both in the UK and internationally, I have been fortunate to win many awards. I have also had the great pleasure of judging many exhibitions and competitions throughout the UK and abroad.
The Royal Photographic Society presented me with the Member’s Award in 2014 and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain awarded me the J.S. Lancaster Medal in 2006. Much of my own photography involves working with models, either on location, which I prefer, or in the studio. By choice I like to work in old buildings, using natural light. The images that I produce are then often post processed using Photoshop. I have a long association with Camera Clubs and, with my husband, enjoy lecturing. I have been President of Smethwick P.S. twice and also President of the Midland Counties Photographic Federation twice.
