Martin Newland, QPSA
I grew up in and around Adelaide in South Australia.
I have always had an interest in photography but my camera only came out while on vacation.
With numerous holiday trips to Europe and South East Asia, the urge to take better photos grew. This in turn fuelled my desire for newer and better cameras, and I worked my way up through the range of Canon digital SLRs.
My professional career was spent in the construction industry and although I have now retired, I am still a co-owner of an architectural precast concrete manufacturing company in Adelaide.
Upon retiring from work, I joined the Adelaide Camera Club and this is when photography began to dominate my life. I enjoyed the feed back from the monthly competitions and it wasn't long before I was introduced to the world of international competitions, hence my membership of the PSA.
I regard myself as a Club photographer. That is someone who enjoys the challenge of most genres. In particular landscape, portraiture, street photography, concert photography and even a bit of boudoir photography.
