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 John Stafford.
- How would you describe your photographic style?
I am more of a passive photographer in that I don’t like to stage scenes or do portraits. I enjoy wildlife and landscape photography the most. I’m not sure I have an actual style, but I like pictures that are sharp and have a lot of drama.
- Which photographer is your biggest inspiration?
I would have to say that Ansel Adams is my biggest inspiration because I was immediately drawn to his work long before I became interested in photography. I do not know or study photographers but that is something I might pursue more in the future.
- How long have you been interested in photography?
I have been using a DSLR for over 20 years, but have only taken it seriously for 4 years.
- What was your first camera?
My first camera was a probably a disposable Kodak when I was a kid, but my first real camera was a Nikon D40.
- What is your dream photo trip?
My dream trip would be one of the cruises offered by National Geographic. They travel to photographic destinations with National Geographic photographers. I think the trip to the Galapagos would be the preferred one for me.
