Peterhead camera club will have a series of profiles of their members in the Buchanie over the summer.

The first of these profiles starts this week and is on club chairman Peter Lewis. Peter has been a member of the club for 3 years and went to Peterhead Academy. He works as a senior technician at Subsea 7.

When asked what he liked about the club Peter said: “Everything! The banter, the competitions, the slide shows and talks that we do every week. The charity events the club organises for local charitable causes.”

“I first joined the club to socialise and to learn more photographic techniques and skills.”

“I got into photography after a bad car crash. My two daughters and very understanding wife inspired me to do photography. It has led me to having my own wildlife exhibition in Granton on Spey.”

“My favourite subject to photograph is wildlife and natural history. I love the thought of being able to show images of the wildlife that I have been lucky enough to come across and share this with other people.”

“A favourite photograph of mine is my badger shot whilst he was foraging. Of the other members of the club it has to be Billy McNeil’s Fire ladder and I like the image of a snowy owl taken by photographer Phillip Newman.”

“The club should learn to help members learn and put input into what they want out of their club.” His favourite kit: “Canon and my favourite lens is Canon EF 200mm F28 with 2x converter.”
