    It was a slow start as only two of us attended and no model was available. However the energy and enthusiasm from our tutor was immense. We did manage to find a model who happened to be walking through the Abbey ruins with her own photographer and we asked if we could join them and they agreed. This is where our tutor came into her own, her direction and attention to detail was outstanding . She was keen to view the images we had taken and provide support for further development . I think we were luck to have her presence as a tutor .

    This photo was taken on my Sony Xperia 1 iii smartphone at Virginia Water Pavilion Lake. After a long walk around I managed to be at the perfect spot to capture the golden hour at 18:40 on 5 September 3023. I took this shot to represent happy times with your loved ones. I edited the shot slightly with lightroom to increase the white balance and bring out those gorgeous colours. After a busy period at work this was just what I needed.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
