I am a Photographic obsessive. I take pictures every day, I can't help it. I have to. I would get withdrawal symptoms if I didn't. My camera comes with me everywhere, even on a shopping trip to Tesco.
I gained my FBPE in 2009, for me this is the greatest award to hold. I resigned from the RPS, 9 years ago after gaining my FRPS & then having it withdrawn because of the controversial nature of its content. Thanks to BW!
I love taking pictures, if it moves I'll photograph it, if it doesn't move I'll photograph it. I love working on pictures via my CS6, printing pictures, I love looking at other peoples pictures......., It's just the best medium in the universe. I don't just see pictures, I feel them.
I give talks and judge on photography from club level right through to international level. I currently use either a FujiS5 camera or a Nikon D800 and either a 15-30mm zoom, a 20mm fixed lens, 105mm Macro or a 18mm - 70mm Zoom. All my macro work is done without a tripod but I currently use a Vivitar Ring Flash.
All my photos are copyright. Use them without my permission and you WILL receive a hefty bill. However, if you are a totally voluntary organisation, or on behalf of any educational establishment or even for your own personal pleasure, please contact me first and I am sure that I will allow you to use the photos gratis.
BUT PLEASE ASK FIRST OUT OF COURTESY, if not, you can expect a bill or a lawsuit.
Currently aiming to take a GOOD photograph every day.
I have also become increasingly more interested in macro / insect photography than I ever had before, since joining Flickr. I was introduced to Flickr by Neil Kad back in October 2008. Thank you Neil.

"Barbie is a genuine 'One Off' character - I have followed her photographic career for many years since she appeared on the scene at the Essex International Salon and won most of the prizes!
The time she puts into her photography is phenominal-she lectures and judges all around UK and is always willing to give advice to beginners who come up to her in the tea-break.
I am happy to give a Testimonial for this very skilled 'Young Lady' ( I'm Older than her ! ) Peter Elgar ABIPP, ARPS"
