David F Cooke ARPS
David now lives in Bristol in the South West of England and, like many photographers, he has been interested in photography since he was at school. His father was a keen photographer and so he had access to a small darkroom at home. He was very active at school as a photographer, taking most of the images for the school magazine and later, at Leeds University, he worked on the weekly student newspaper, firstly as Pictures Editor and later as Features Editor and then Assistant Editor.
After graduating and subsequently getting his PhD in combustion engineering, David worked in industry and local government before joining the UK Open University where he is now a Senior Lecturer and Staff Tutor. During this time, photography took a back seat until he was given a Nikon D70 for his birthday four years ago – and the love of making images was rekindled.
In 2006, he joined the RPS and was awarded his LRPS on 28th February 2008. On 16th June 2009, he was awarded an ARPS in Visual Art. His photographic interests are wide-ranging but his main interest is in photographing people in their environment.
David is Chair of the RPS Digital Imaging Group and Editor of the Group’s quarterly magazine ‘DIGIT’ as well as the Visual Art Group’s magazine ‘Visual Art’.
