Been a professional photographer for over 19 years. Was fascinated with photography when I did portfolio modeling in my twenties. I thought to myself I would like to be on the other side of the fence and take great photos. Started working with my Uncle and did weddings. I could not believe how many referrals we received from future clients. I then started my own company-Aurora Photography specializing in portraits and wedding photography. I have a Bachelors in marketing from Central Michigan University and a Associates degree from the New York Institute of Photography. Photography and Arts have been a part of my family's German heritage. I am a current member of the Grosse Pointe Camera Club and have been the clubs pictorial and nature director. I have won over 250 awards in photography and enjoy it. My passion is taking landscape and nature images. Looking forward to helping other photographers enhance their enthusiasm in this gifted art.

Currently I am my clubs nature director and am a judge for several clubs in the Detroit Metropolitan area.

Recently{1.2.2019}, I was elected to be Council Director of GDCCC (Greater Detroit Camera Club Council)consisting of 11 photographic member clubs in the greater metropolitan Detroit area including one in Windsor, Ontario, one in Toledo, Ohio. The GDCCC has been in existence for over 80 years.

I am a retired RN, whose interest in photography was rekindled around the time digital became possible, and when my children no longer had so many needs. My pleasure is nature photography, although I take pictures of anything and everything in ‘my world’. I am active in the local camera club, enjoy photo trips, and watching the seasons from my little house in the country. A local craft store sells my cards and pictures. I haven’t yet delved deeply into the internet market, and my goal with PSA study groups is to continue to improve the images I shoot.

I retired from the Quality Assurance area of Abbott Laboratories eight years ago. Just prior to my retirement I purchased a Mac computer and started auditing classes at the local technical college at the reduced senior rates to learn how to use my new Mac. I took Intro to Digital Photography four times as I found the learning curve for Photoshop to be steep.

Now I am into Lightroom and find it much quicker than Photoshop. Occasionally I go into Photoshop to clone or use one of the creative filters on my image that Lightroom can't do. There is a learning curve on Lightroom, too, but with all the video help on websites, I am getting better and better at it.

I enjoy this study group to show images that I thought turned out well and want them to be critiqued by other photographers who enjoy Lightroom and/or Photoshop. Hopefully, I will learn new ideas and better techniques from their comments.

As a Geography Educator for over 40 years I have always been in awe at the diversity of our natural and built environments. It was my wanting to capture this that commenced my diverse photographic Journey and my love of photography. I enjoy travel, environmental (natural and built landscapes), street and macro photography and I’m
particularly passionate about the Australian outback and rural areas.

Since retiring and moving to beautiful Wangi in 2015,I have had more time to use my Nikon D750 and to become more creative with my photos. Exploring and learning digital art processing has enabled me to use my computer as a tool for artistic expression, achieving more joy from my photography.

I have learnt a lot by being a member of a camera club and am now presently, President of Wangi Camera Club on Lake Macquarie in NSW.

I live in Colorado, and I enjoy being in nature. Photography is my passion. I am semi-retired and love to travel. Photography and travel allow me to "tell the story" of what I am experiencing. I want to experience and enjoy each day and each opportunity. I am a member of a local art co-op where I display and sell my images, and I am also a member of our local camera club.

Many thanks,
Deborah Milburn

Sheila Burke-Grey. I arrived late to photography, after raising my family and taking many snapshots. But I soon learned that I love photography, planning a photography trip, composing and taking the photo. Of course, I always get it right in the camera, so there no post-processing. Just kidding!! Joining a camera club, has enhanced the composition of my photos, which have culminated in several award-winning photos. Currently, I am a member of the Suffolk Camera Club in Bohemia. My specialty is outdoor photos with landscapes, lighthouses, seascapes, but I also enjoy macro photography. My journey with photography has taken me to many travel destinations. Along the way, I have met great photographers, who share my passion.
