Martin Kessel – Introduction to Astrophotography – DPI2 Hand In
November 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
I live in Stoke on Trent and have been an amateur photographer since I purchased my first camera with my paper round money when I was 14. It fits in around my many other hobbies,
my 3 favourite areas being Astronomy, Military Aircraft and Wildlife.
I recently retired from full time work at Johnsons Photopia and now just do a little part time work as an ecologist – great really as it gives me opportunity to see and photograph even more wildlife!
For about the last 10 years I have helped out as a judge at most local photography clubs (not being a member of a club does give me a reasonable amount of non-partiality!) and given talks on “Basic Astrophotography” and “Low flying Aircraft Photography”.
Many of the shots used in my talks can be found in my Flickr account here… https://www.flickr.com/photos/
