About Allen Hale ARPS

I have been interested in photography from the age of 11, I was given a Kodak Brownie 127 for passing my 11+ exams. I graduated onto an Ensign 120, this gave larger contact prints!
On going to college I graduated to various 35mm cameras, I studied Optometry and worked holidays at an opticians in Glasgow, they had a photographic department which enabled me to “play” with any camera in stock this whetted my appetite for photography.
I have been a keen member of camera clubs since the early 70’s, both in Scotland and since the early 80’s around the Cambridge area, I am currently a member of Cambridge Camera Club, I am currently running the New Members Group, we have almost 200 members in the club and the new members can find it quite daunting when first joining, our group number about 30 and we meet monthly to critique each other’s work. Cambridge also enter Federation events and have represented the Federation at national print and PDI competitions and I am the coordinator of our club’s entries
I have had my own darkroom doing both mono and colour, nowadays I am 100% digital and produce my own prints.
I have always used Canon cameras moving from film to digital about 10 years ago. I have recently moved to Olympus as the Canon system was getting too heavy to carry around, I am getting too old to lug heavy equipment up and down hills.
In the 90’s I qualified as a judge for the Eastern Area Federation (EAF) initially as a “C” panel judge and later was promoted to the “B” panel, I finally gave up judging on the club circuit in 2013.
I obtained the Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society in 2009 and achieved my Associateship in 2013. I am working on my panel for my Fellowship which I hope to apply for in the coming year.
My photographic interests are mainly landscape, nature and travel and I am keen to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for photography with others and joining your panel of judges will help me to achieve this.
