"You don't take a photograph, you make it" - Ansel Adams
I became a member of Hartlepool Camera Club in 2015 when I decided that there was much more to learn from simply pointing and shooting with a camera in automatic mode. After some expert tutorials, and armed with my bridge camera, I headed off to re-discover my love of the Lake District. I have now progressed to owning a Canon DSLR and have a passion for landscape and seascape photography. In 2016 I claimed first place in the HCC Stephen Emerson Memorial (Scapes) competition, with my picture 'Next Stop Timanfaya', below. Hope you enjoy looking at some of my other pics.
