Thank you Clacton Camera Club for this lovely little fella, presented after doing an after dinner speech and handing out their annual awards.
Guernsey was such fun, the people too were fun. Must go back.
Recently received news along with my Certificate that I am now officially an EFIAP/Silver.
One of my Nature pictures was shown on BBC Springwatch on 28th May, 2013. Well chuffed.

Bastards broke into my Mazda and destroyed the car in the process. They cut trough the roof, tore out the glove box & clock only to find that there wasn't anything worth nicking. It then rained and now the interior is soaked too. Police were a waste of space, as they weren't interested as per usual.
Congratulations though to Rusty for achieving his FBPE
A difficult but well earned award. He has had to get over 500 accepted images in the Nationally recognised BPE exhibitions, together with receiving 50 awards with 25 different images, only AFTER achieving his BPE5*

Rusty got down on one knee at work to ask me to marry him. He'd obviously forgotten that we've been married for over 22years ago. The moment was captured by Martin Bright.
I am a member of the infamous 'Beyond Group' to which I was a founder member just 6 years ago. In 2006 we became affiliated to the EAF, since which the 'Beyond Group' has managed to win every federation competition apart from this year (2nd in PDI), regardless of whatever rules they have instigated since. We are a very small group, numbering just 15 members, but each and every one are dedicated to this most wonderful of art mediums. The group DOES NOT actively seek out top photographers, but instead encourage those with potential to push their photographic skills to another level.
So it came as no surprise that it was the 'Beyond Group' won the 'Projected Image' competition and 2nd to Ware in the 'Print' competition held at Harlow on February 14th this year. A difficult feat as we couldn't use any prints or projected images previously used at PAGB level. That gave us just 3 months to produce new prints.
UNPAID NUDE MODELS ARE STILL REQUIRED FOR NEW PROJECT. MUST NOT HAVE PERFECT BODIES!! I NEED OVERWEIGHT, UNDERWEIGHT, AGING, ONE LEGGED ETC., ARE YOU WILLING? If so contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org (artistically done.)

After hearing of a couple of horrendous examples of photographers being challenged and their rights being infringed, I think everyone should ckeck out UK Photographers rights
