I love photography because it's made me see the world in a different way. I now notice details in things around me - light, texture, colour, shapes. And I love it when I can say to myself "Wow, I can't believe I took that!". It's extremely satisfying.
As a lifelong artist, I have explored many different mediums throughout the years – oil, acrylic and watercolour painting, creative writing and music (I’m a classically trained violinist). After the birth of my first child, I found myself with no time for a creative outlet and when a friend suggested I enroll in a photography course with her at St Lawrence College in Kingston, I jumped at the opportunity. I quickly discovered that photography was a great way to capture priceless moments with my growing family while also learning a new art form.
I am by no means a technical photographer - I am far more interested in composition and capturing moments of authenticity and humanity. Over the past few years I’ve worked to improve my technical skills, (starting with actually learning how to use my camera) and have even had the pleasure of developing my photography skills at work. I am especially interested in portrait and contemplative photography.
I've always had an interest in Photography. My first camera's were point and shoot. I received my first DSLR Canon Camera in 2012. I've been a member of the Camera Club since 2013, and haven't looked back. The members have taught me so much about my camera and the editing side of creating your final picture. I feel my confidence has grown since joining, and also learning to think outside the box
I have fully embraced the digital world with a steep software learning curve. My passion is portraits in all forms. I have started a fledgling photography business (www.greenwoodsphotography.ca) to pursue that passion but always keep an eye out for wildlife, landscape and other interesting opportunities.

My cameras these days are the Olympus Micro Four Thirds models. With an excellent choice of lenses, they make for a compact and light-weight outfit.
I keep busy with the camera club, doing photo restoration work for clients and teaching digital photography classes.
My photography experience started with a concealed Silent Sam spy camera. Most people I photographed had the same inquisitive look on their faces as I carefully aimed the black plastic briefcase and clicked away. A long list of instamatic and polaroids followed in seamless succession. My first SLR was a venerable Olympus OM1. When digital photography appeared I got a pocket size Richo that took great photos. I followed up with Olympus and canon super zoom point and shoot. I learned that it‘s not the camera that makes great photos but it helps! My grandfather was a superb photographer, cutting his teeth shooting behind enemy lines with a bellows camera whilst dangling from the cockpit of a balsa wood and canvas bi plane, the first use of arial spy photography. Coincidentally. in WWII my father instructed airmen in aerial photography. My mother was a talented painter and I literally inherited her eye for colour.We both possess an extra set of colour receptive cones in our retinas. I spent countless hours honing photography skills and equally important the fieldcraft required to work very close to wildlife without scaring them. I eventually upped the ante and bought some pro lenses, starting with the big gun, a Canon 500f4. After lugging this wonderful behemoth through swamps and tangled undergrowth of Gatineau Park for seven hours, I longed for the simpler days, cycling with my pocket size richo! But alas there‘s no turning back on the photographic journey.
Closer to my retirement and with the advent of digital cameras, my interest in photography was piqued again. My wife bought me a digital camera and I was smitten. I love to capture nature whether it is wildlife, landscapes, flowers or anything that has to do with our beautiful surroundings. I also love to experiment in the studio capturing smoke, splash photography, macro, as well as venturing into more urban photography. Learning to see the beauty that surrounds us and trying to capture it, is what keeps me reaching for my camera.
Being part of the Lanark County Camera Club is a most enjoyable experience, meeting and learning from fellow photographers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
After attending a presentation on garden photography at the Horticultural Society I knew it was time to get a DSLR. Then courses and workshops with my Canon 60D opened my eyes to different techniques and subjects that I never would have thought of photographing before. The Club has since 2009 been an inspiration and provides me with the stimulation to continue my journey.
Born a child of the fifties to a working class family in Toronto. Leaving high school into a first job as an appliance repair person and then entering a four year apprenticeship in the construction trades. Traveling around the country I picked up photography as a hobby in the 70's, over the years it fell by the wayside. Leaving construction in 1980 to pursue a career in computer maintenance only to go back to construction in 2007 until 2016 when I retired and picked up photography again in the digital medium, returning to a camera system I loved then, Pentax! A new world has opened up to me again.

I have a lifelong interest in Photography. From childhood darkrooms to owning a photoshop and more cameras than I can remember, it’s been a passion close to my heart. I’m interested in many forms of photography, especially the artistic rendering of the extraordinary to the mundane. The LC Camera Club is an excellent place to grow as a photographer and learn from the many helpful and knowledgeable members.
I have been interested in photography for as long as I remember but never pursued it until about 5 years ago. Soon after buying my first DSLR I discovered a passion for wildlife photography. My photography interest and style continue to grow. The Lanark County Camera Club is a great venue to share my images and knowledge and learn from other club members.
I have been interested in photography for many years, having a Kodak Brown box as a child. I like shooting most kinds of images, but I enjoy action and sports photography the most. I also like to enter photo contests, and I have won some prizes in doing so. Otherwise, I am purely a hobbyist, and a long time (15 years) member of the Lanark County Camera Club.
My interest in photography started while I was growing up in my hometown of Harrington Harbour, Quebec. At that time it was with a box camera, probably a Brownie. Most of the photos were of friends and family. Because I lived in a remote area I had to wait weeks to receive the developed film only to find all photos were a disaster. My interest waned and I did not use a camera much until I spent several summers in the Arctic using a Pentax 35mm SLR. There have been lots of changes with cameras and I am now using a Nikon D300. The ability to take as many pictures as I want and then filter through them, keeping those that I would like to share, is a real bonus with Digital SLR cameras.
Being a part of The Lanark County Camera Club is rewarding. I have made many new friends and enjoy learning and sharing information with the members.
The 1st camera that I could call my own was a Kodak Brownie. Many of my images were memorable 'Kodak moments’ that came alive in front of my eyes as I learnt how to make that ﬁlm breathe in the darkroom. I was hooked! It took me a long time to move into the digital world; took the plunge in 2011 and I haven’t looked back. Thanks to the exposure LCCC has provided; I have tried a lot of new photographic techniques and genres but macro photography still remains my favourite.
