Brian Magor, APSA, MPSA

Retired in 2003 after 39 years teaching history and as a Deputy Headmaster in a Boys Grammar School. Had cameras in my youth, but have not really taken any pictures since the 70s - except to be told occasionally to take "holiday snaps" while my wife, who has been a photographer since childhood, took the serious photographs. Upon retirement took up photography - this time digital - working my way up from a pocket 1.2 megapixel camera, which I lost ski-ing somewhere in Finland, to a digital SLR - Canon 350D through 400D to 650D. Now have updated to 4/3rds Olympus EM1 with a mixture of Lumix and Panasonic lenses - much easier to carry!

Joined Hoylake Photographic Society in the UK - now a club member of the PSA. Started entering international competitions in 2007 & was amazed to find myself in the 2007 PSA Who's Who! We joined the PSA in 2009 and set ourselves a target to get 10 stars in our first year - We both gained EFIAP & EPSA in 2011 and MPSA in 2013 - but a long way to climb to get to GMPSA.
Currently, I am the Exhibition Services Vice President for the PSA.
