Malcolm Barents

I first started photography when I was living in Johannesburg, owned a Canon AE1 camera and had nothing much to do in the evenings so I joined the Johanessburg photographic society.  Within two years I won the prize for the best dog picture so I must have learnt something.  Now living in Poole and retired I joined the Parkstone Camera Club as I had nothing much to do in evenings.  Prior to that I moved around a bit and worked as an engineer, bringing up three children (actually I think my wife really did that) who have produced four grandchildren between them.  

I have remained loyal to the Canon brand although I have now gone digital as they say.  I have Canon D6 and D600 cameras and more lenses that I can comfortably carry.  I tend to photograph anything that I can see although generally not that very well.  The majority of my images tend to be landscapes as the countryside generally does not move when I am photographing it and does not answer back.  When not in Poole I try to be somewhere else in the world, preferably remote, looking for something new to photograph.  I probably have the largest selection of whale, penguin and bear photographs in the club and would welcome newcomers to the club to see if they have more.
