Pauline Martindale – Vancouver to Niagara

Pauline  enjoys all aspects of Photography, particularly landscape. Although she enjoys nature photography she is not in any way an  expert, a bit like Bill Oddie, she says, when a brown bird is a little brown jobbie.

Pauline has been a judge with the East Anglian Federation for many many years, and loves visiting clubs because she sees so many lovely images. Having said she enjoys landscapes, she believes she had a very open mind regards other styles of photography, including altered reality – ie images that have been digitally manipulated.

Sheila Haycox – selection of AVs


Sheila Haycox ARPS MPAGB/AV, EFIAP is retired and thoroughly enjoying this status.

She has several interests which include gardening, reading, cooking; but her main hobby is photography. Sheila’s interest in photography started in the late 60’s when her husband gave her a camera, mainly for use to take holiday snaps and pictures of the family as they grow up. However in 1986 she took photography up more seriously and since then there has been no looking back.

Sheila will share with us a selection of her very varied AV presentations.

Ruth Grindrod – Colours, Tones and Textures in Landscape Photography


Ruth is a landscape photographer currently living in Norfolk, East Anglia. Her work takes her to a variety of locations but her real passion is for coastal photography. She started taking photographs many years ago but work intruded upon this. In those days she shot film and processed mono images. Now she shoots digitally and processes using ACR and Photoshop CC.

“I love being out in the varied landscapes despite the harsh conditions that the weather in the UK and further afield can throw at you. I want to use my camera as a means of exploration but also as a tool to record fine images which detail and reflect the ever-changing landscape. I find the solitude of being in some remote regions both calming and inspiring.” See Ruth’s images on her website.
