Looking for some photographic inspiration? Well look no further then the current members of the Ajax Photography Club. Each month a different APC member will be featured and we will provide a glimpse into their photographic life.
This month, the featured photographer is Marlene Phillips.
I have been interested in photography since my teen years; capturing those special moments, building a collection of memories for myself, family and friends.
Despite the enjoyment I experienced from photographing I hoped to someday enhance my knowledge and skills. Becoming a member of APC was instrumental in making this happen. It has been an interesting, always inspiring, learning experience.
As my photography journey continues, I realize it is not only about capturing moments, it is an avenue to channel my creativity.
- How would you describe your photographic style?
I have always had the greatest respect and admiration for nature and find myself drawn to capturing its beauty. The creative possibilities of Macro as well as the dramatic effects of Black and White also appeal to me.
- Which photographer is your biggest inspiration?
I am inspired by many photographers including my fellow club members and those who I meet along the way.
- How long have you been interested in photography?
I have been interested since my teen years; it’s been during the last fifteen years that I’ve wanted to further my knowledge and skills.
- What was your first camera?
My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic X-15.
- What is your dream photo trip?
I would like to go back to the Grand Canyon.
