MAKING FRIENDS IN PHOTOGRAPHY
Building the new PhotoActive website over the last few days I’ve been delving into past files in my search for pictures of the many photography holidays, weekends and courses we organised for so many years.
So many pictures of friends. So much fun…
Ken Terry – who came on our Menorca photography holidays 13 times! Professor Martin Rowe – he came with us to Menorca, Venice and Scotland. He’s been here to Shropshire, too, for one-to-one tuition recently.
Cathy Robertson, Russell Turner, Joe Banin, John Proud, John Cannon, John Smith, Maria Falconer, Peter Frisby, Jenny Nicholl and countless others too numerous to mention here. All people I am proud to call friends. All came to me initially as student clients with an interest in photography and a desire to learn more about it. People like those in the picture below taken on one of our last photography holidays in Menorca.
I’ve watched these friends extend their knowledge of photography over the years. Some are now selling their photographs, some have become full-time professionals. Others have published books. It’s all a great source of pride to me.

Now that we are finally established in our cottage in Shropshire, Norene and I are really looking forward to the possibility of welcoming back some of these lovely people. Although we shall no longer be doing the overseas holidays, we do plan to arrange some group workshops here in lovely Shropshire. That’s in addition to the one-to-one photography tuition available.
We hope to many old friends again – and make lots of new ones, too.
