David Price, EPSA

I took up photography as a hobby in 2011 after retiring from work. I am currently a member of Three clubs, West Cumbria Photo Group, Copeland Photographic Society and Workington Camera Club all in Cumbria in the North West of England.

I have been entering Exhibitions since May 2014 and joined PSA in September 2016. I like taking images of most subjects, although I particularly like to take pictures of people I meet on the street. I like to manipulate my images in Photoshop and convert many to mono in Nik Silver Efex. I frequently enter competitions and exhibitions and I am a regular entrant in Print of the Month. I have learned much through peoples honest and open critiques.

I'm British, recently emigrated to the US after living for 17 years in the French Alps. I was born and brought up in London, went to Oxford University and worked in finance for many years. In 2002, I took over the family business (www.lutyens-furniture.com) and continue to run to this day. I'm about to turn 60, a widow with two adult children. My interest in photography started as a child with my first Box Brownie. It was in abeyance for many years but I picked it up again around 2013 and became really serious after my husband's death in 2015. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society, I participate in many of their workshops and I have been on several photographic holidays. My main photographic interests are landscape and architecture though I dabble in street, still life, macro and abstract. I'm not interested in portraiture or wildlife.

Oliver Morton

Oliver ("Pete") lives in a suburb of Washington D.C. Although he does not recall when he first became fascinated with photography, he does remember his first camera and the experiences he enjoyed with it very fondly. Oliver was in 9th grade and was living in Taiwan. He was an army brat. He recalls that his best friend at the time was a young man named Chen Lung. Chen spoke very little English and Oliver spoke about the same amount of Mandarin. Carrying English/Mandarin dictionaries with them became their best way of communicating. But, this did not deter their friendship. Chen was eager to share the beauty of his country and wanted Oliver to experience it all. Oliver would capture all that he saw with his camera and still treasures the memories of their trips together through the mountains and into the cities of Taiwan.

Since his father was in the army, Oliver's family moved a great deal during his childhood. He got to experience life in Japan, Germany and Taiwan as well as numerous locations in the USA.

Oliver's advanced education was in physics and he worked at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for 48 years dealing with computing technologies and NIH medical research grants. Now that he has mostly retired he is able to devote much more time to photography.

Every aspect of photography fascinates Oliver. Today, with his Canon 5D Mark IV in hand, he shoots anything that triggers an emotional response in him. That ranges from candid portraits to beautiful landscapes and a variety of other subjects. To Oliver a key goal of his photographs is to instill the same feelings in the viewer that he had when he initially captured an image.

Oliver has been using Photoshop for a long time and on two occasions has been sponsored to travel to England to teach it. However, he feels there is a lot more he can learn about this full featured (and evolving) processing product. He is especially interested in learning how to enhance the feelings created by his pictures.

My first real camera was an Olympus OM1, the original Olympus compact 35mm SLR. I always enjoyed photography loving the way that magic moments could be transformed into amazing memories.
Now I am driven to find opportunities from things as simple as a walk along the beach that can be captured in a way that is precious to me and to anyone else that might enjoy my images.
Searching through the lens for something special drives my daily passion for photography.
Today I shoot with a Sony A7Riv and an Olympus EM1ii

I have been interested in photography virtually all of my life, joining my father and older brother in their love of all things related to cameras when I was a small child.

In my 20’s, I was able to obtain a position as a studio photographer, but after a few years I had to find a better paying job to support my family. At that time, I embarked upon a career in information technology and communications with the U.S.Navy, retiring after 25 years of service.

I enjoy taking photos of all types of subjects, but my current interest is in Macro Photography which allows me to use my lenses, filters and tubes to discover normally unseen features of the natural world. My current cameras are the Nikon D500 and the D810.

I have been retired for a couple of years now and fortunately we have moved to a community that actively supports my three major interests: photography, pottery, and wood working. Moving to Sun City and joining the Photography Club enabled me to devote the desired amount of time to my pursuit of mastering the art of photography.
