    I am a founder and active member of the Great Notley Photography Club see www.gnpc.co.uk. If you live in the area I would recommend that you come along to a meeting and give it a try as it may dispel some of the stereo type images you may have of such clubs. I remember once saying many years ago that I would never join a photographic club and I am now a committee member :) GNPC is a lively and fun club that has a strong social core and a very wide range of members and activities. The club also has a very active online Flickr Group where members interact on a daily basis www.flickr.com/groups/gnpc/

    I know that buying a DSLR does not make you a photographer just a camera owner and it takes work and perseverance to use the camera to create images that really communicate. The photograph can very artistic and a great means of communication if you can put behind you the technical, learn the visual language of the subconscious so that you can translate that language to convey the meaning and emotions that you have experienced in being there.

    I am currently working on two photographic projects. The first is a series of images of my Mother who is suffering from Alzheimer's. The intention is to highlight this terrible disease and to also raise some money for The Alzheimer's Research Trust.
    The second project is a series of black and white street images that I want to submit to The Royal Photographic Society for their ARPS qualification.

    Keeping fit, Psychology and a host of other things that I won't bore you all with
