I took my first photos with my parent's box bownie around the age of ten and I was hooked from the start. My photos since that time have mainly been happy snaps, family and travel photos. In 2005 I brought my first digital compact camera which changed my outlook on photography. Retirement also brought me more time to pursue a hobby I love. In 2009 I brought a 12mp digital DSLR which I still use. I am an outdoors person and although I photograph the occasional portrait and still life I prefer to be outdoors photographing landscapes, beaches, birds, animals, events, surfing and sailing, flowers and trees. I have travelled quite a lot and take hundreds of photos on trips. Queensland is still one of my favourite places to photograph, from the reef to the outback and surf to the rainforests. The club and the judging of photos have assisted me in learning to take better photos and improve post production techniques.
