My interest in photography started when I was about 15, when I watched my older brother develop photos in a downstairs bathroom that he had turned into a darkroom. Of course when I had a baby of my own the interest in photography resurfaced once again. I’m sure I had the most photographed baby in the world. In 2003 I joined the local camera club and I became very serious about my hobby. I was the club’s editor for their newsletter for at least 4 years, and have earned many merits and honours for my photos in our monthly photo comps. I have earned my way into ‘A’ Grade, which is the top grade in our club.
I have won various photo competitions over the last five years,
By the way, I forgot to mention that I have a physical disability. I’m a thalidomide victim which means I have very short arms with three fingers on each hand, so I take most of my photos (other than using a tripod) whilst holding the camera with my feet.
Not many photographers can put that on their resume.
