The creative faces of Focus CT – its Staff and Committee Members!
Adrian - I have been keen on the arts since very young but took up photography though necessity while doing graphic design work in a marketing capacity. I have a wide interest range regarding genre of photographic images but I challenge myself to lean towards edgy within my passion of people, storytelling and being artistically creative.
Gemma - I was introduced into Photography by a very good friend, Adrian, in Winter 2016. I found a new platform in my creative arts background (being music) where I discovered I had an eye and unique style in photography. I find many areas in photography very fascinating, enlightening and inspiring in their own right, however I find Night/Astronomy Photography, Abstract/Creative, Surrealism, and Silhouette photography what interests me the most and like to further progress and create. Joining as a committee member for Focus CT (FCTPA), I aim to make a positive contribution in the growing expansion of this photographic association and its vision.
Mark - I like photography because it’s an opportunity to explore different subjects, from wildlife, city scapes, different locations and the techniques that I can learn to make better photos.Architecture has always been my favourite, I like going to big cities and taking pictures of modern looking buildings. I joined the committee as this was a new and exciting photography group. It has practical sessions every two weeks that I really enjoy.
Pete - I have been interested in photography since the 1960’s when 35mm was the norm. I became more interested in photography in the 1970’s taking black & white, colour film and slides. This was largely to record family occasions and sporting events, mostly cycling which is my passion.
At the request of work colleagues and friends I have taken photographs at weddings, christenings, graduations ceremonies, numerous charity and sporting events.
Since the introduction of digital cameras my main interest is in nature and macro photography; although I do not limit myself to these areas. I love taking photographs.
I joined the club as I have a passion for photography and enjoy the social element of the group. This also gives me the opportunity to exchange ideas and share knowledge with like-minded people.
As a diverse association, our staff and committee are ran by our selected members. Their (specialised) knowledge and expertise, unique and outgoing personalities, help ensure a

Our staff and committee members are our own valuable resources and first point of contact, to help with (organisational) matters and to provide relevant and up-to-date information.
Therefore, it is important for all members to know Who we are and How they can get in contact.
