Born in Far North Queensland, Australia, my passion for photography started when I was about 13 years old. I was a keen bird watcher and would often borrow my mum's old Kodak rangefinder to take photos of the surrounding bird habitat, flowers and learn various techniques. Although I would have to duck and run away from those pesky Australian magpies and the swooping plovers!
I moved to England in 1995 and developed an interest in landscape photography. My main interest now is landscapes but I also enjoy macro, abstracts and fine art. Many of my current images are of the south of England, in particular the South Downs National Park. In 2003 I proudly gained my Licentiateship distinction by portfolio and am currently working towards my ARPS.
I'm married and am the father of 3 young boys.

David Ashcroft LRPS is our event organiser for the northern area of the Southern Region. This includes the areas of North Hampshire, Wiltshire and Berkshire that fall within the Southern Region. He also fulfils the regional secretarial role.
I started photography in my early teens and I am still enjoying it and trying to improve some 50 years later!
I achieved my LRPS a few years ago and I am now working on my ARPS panel (which proving is a lot harder than I imagined!) My interests lie in Landscape, architecture and fine art nude genres.
Some of my favourite and influential photographers are Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Man Ray, Andre Kertesz, Duane Michals, Cecil Beaton, Norman Parkinson, Horst P. Horst and Bob Carlos Clarke.
