I am an amateur photographer who loves making images that I consider to be beautiful. However, I will readily admit that some turn out to be rather less beautiful than others! I enjoy other genres of photography but I am at heart addicted to ‘creative portraiture.’

I like to share my passion for self-development with others and enjoy judging, lecturing and organising photography experiences and workshops.

Jo Humberstone

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
