Zoom Speaker – Margaret Salisbury.

One of the few good things to come out of Covid, ~ we are finally able to present “The Welsh Dragon” with some of her Mono work.


Known as “The Welsh Dragon” because of her signature on her prints, Margaret’s love of photography began in capturing the Slate Landscapes of her native North Wales. Committed to printing her images, she believed that a photograph is taken with a camera but the image was made in the Darkroom, which changed to the “Light-room”, when she took up the challenge of Digital photography, which has enabled her to print colour and monochrome and enjoy capturing many different subjects, including People, Environmental Portraiture, Travel, Documentary, Nature, Wildlife, Sea and Landscapes, Creative, as well as her main love of Pictorial photography. All these Genres are included in latest lectures hoping to show something for everyone.

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.
