I have been involved in photography for the last 15 years. My interests include travel, people and nature/wildlife. I am a member of Celbridge camera club. At the moment, I am involved at a national level with the IPF being a member of council for the last 10 years
In 2004, I applied for a licentiate distinction with the IPF (LIPF) and was successful, and in 2008, I followed up with an associateship panel (AIPF). In 2016 I applied for my fellowship and happily was successful in that endeavour in September 2016.
In parallel to this I have been working tooward a set of FIAP distinctions ( Federation Internationale Art Photographique and so far, have gained an EFIAP distinction and was awarded EFIAP/b in 2017. I w=am currently progressing on to the next level (EFIAP/s)
My passions in photography are people in their environment and the natural world. My interest in photographing the natural world also reflects a desire to protect and enhance our environment. We are at a pivotal time in the cycle of thing in the world with many habitats under threat due to climate change. It seems a shame that human greed and indifference is adding to the destruction.
