CHAIR and WEBMASTER :

I grew up in Abergavenny where my father first printed the Abergavenny Chronicle and then taught at King Henry. I then moved away to pursue a career in computing and business while bringing up a family (one of each). Along the way, I became interested in photography and eventually joined Yateley Camera Club in 2007. When Eleri and I retired in 2012, we headed home and now live in Llanddewi Skirrid with our two golden retrievers. Naturally, I joined Abergavenny Camera Club, where I am now Chair and Webmaster.

I have no photographic speciality but just enjoy photographing whatever is in front of me and 'trying stuff'. I have Canon DSLR kit, with a smaller Sony carry-around camera. And of course the ubiquitous smartphone. A thing about photography I love is that there's always something new to learn (as well as new technology to lust after and play with, of course).

After some darkroom dabbling in my teens when I picked up the basics, photography tended to take a back seat to other activities for many years. Then, a couple of years ago I decided that digital was getting good enough to be worth a try and I haven't looked back since. I went for Canon, a 450D and later a 7D. I found and joined Abergavenny Camera Club, which has been great in making me realise how much I needed toimprove, but also in helping me to do so. A lifelong love of hills and mountains means that landscapes are my main area of interest. I do a little wildlife photography and would like to do more, but wildlife is harder to find and moves around a lot faster.

TREASURER:
Reg Roberts

email: treasurer@abergavennycameraclub.org.uk

 

Retired Engineer. Although interested in all aspects of photography my main interest is landscape.

Having had an underlying interest in photography since my teens. I bought my first second hand 35mm range finder camera with savings from my low apprentice pay. Having been loaned a Gnome enlarger I experimented with black and white printing. However with a career and the responsibilities of married life my interest continued as a family snaps man.

On retiring I renewed my interest in photography to compliment my hobby of hill walking. I joined the Abergavenny club with a view to improve.

Talks attended at the club, advice and constructive critique from fellow members as certainly enhanced my enjoyment of photography. Hill walking now complements my hobby of photography.
