Pamela Stirling LRPS
I’ve been taking photographs including cine film since a child. Whilst a member of the Lambretta scooter club I took photos at their events which were used in the club magazine. I also worked for some years for a Nottingham photographer in his darkroom printing black and white images...pre colour film. Then marriage and family photos followed. When I retired I joined a camera workshop to find out how to use a digital camera better. I joined Axminster and Sidmouth Camera clubs after gaining my LRPS.

Joined the Axminster Photographic Group in 2007 with the aim of developing my photography having just retired to Axminster. Today I find that I always have my “iPhone” with me, this has and continues to produced some memorable images, some example of which are below. Additionally I have a Nikon P900 and a Z50 both have enabled some great wildlife images.

My interests are in macro photography, landscape and some manipulation using software. In the macro field I take flowers, fossils and mechanical items, usually using a single light source and reflector. I was reluctant to adopt digital as I felt the quality of the image couldn't match that of a print. I now wish I had made the transition much earlier.

"I’ve been taking photographs since I was a child, photography for me is second nature, - informing how I see things and how I interpret them. The Dorset countryside tends to be my main subject, although I take my camera everywhere and focus on anything that catches my eye."

Chris Sellers
As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) I first moved to the West Country in 1976, I'm primarily a landscape photographer, focusing on the South West of England and Scotland - both regions full of photographic richness and potential. The majority of images have been captured on Leica M rangefinder camera.

'I have recently bought a 600mm lens, and By Jove it's a heavy beast. So, once I've finished my body-building for duffers work-out course, you can expect a lot more wildlife photographs from me.'
