I am new to the club and to the Cowichan Valley. I have been doing photography for a couple of years now. I started out by using my sons Nikon for almost a year until my husband bought me my own camera. I love getting out in nature and taking in the sights and sounds and I recently started doing family and portraits.
Bob became interested in photography in his pre teens and built his own dark room in the root cellar of his parents home. He delivered newspapers and spent the money he earned on a box camera, enlarger and all the necessary dark room equipment so he could develop, enlarge and otherwise play with the kodak black and white 120 and 620 film of the day. read the full bio ...

I have had an interest in photography since I was a child. My father bought me a Kodak instamatic and from there I had a 35 mm “automatic” camera. In 1985, my parents gave me a Pentax K 1000 camera which I used exclusively until I bought my Canon Rebel XT SLR in 2003. I then used both cameras over the years. After joining the camera club in 2015, I purchased my full frame camera and a Canon 80D. I still have my Pentax and Rebel and I use them when I do not want to take the expensive cameras with me. I enjoy doing landscape, nature, long exposure and macro/close up photography. When I travel I enjoy capturing historical sites.
