Margaret Elliot – competition judge
It wasn’t until I retired from my hairdressing business in 2003 that I purchased a Canon SLR camera and joined the Dumfries Camera Club. Not understanding the language, I attended the Dumfries College for a course in general photography, I graduated in 2006 with an HND.
I have worked through the club assessments first CPAGB, AFIAP, DPAGB and EFIAP before sitting an assessment to be a judge with the NCPF and the SPF.
2015 my love of photography drew me to collate an exhibition of prominent buildings which was the work of a local architect from the 1800’s, ‘Walter Newall’. An 8-week project which escalated to 3 and a half years. After researching the architect for so long I published a book on the subject, and had it printed and for sale in 2019.
2020 brought me back to club awards and on the 14th October 2020, I Submitted a panel of fine art prints to the RPS and was enrolled as an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, ARPS can now be added to my achievements.
