April’s Photographer of the Month- Alison Tuffin
‘What can you tell us about your winning entry?’
I captured this image last December in some nearby woodland, it was taken the morning after we’d had a very heavy snow-fall in Shropshire. I wanted to achieve a very natural, organic feel to the overall result & I think I managed to achieve that with this shot.
‘How did you get into Photography?’
It all started around 13 years ago, when my eldest daughter Jessica arrived. I wanted to capture those precious moments in her life. The first camera that I used was a Minolta Dynax 5 & ever since then it’s very rare that I’m without a camera in my hand!
It’s only in the last three years that I started to look at my photography on a more serious side; it was after a family holiday to The Lake District three years ago that I had my first order for a canvas of Coniston Water at Sunset & from there I’ve not looked back!
‘What do you enjoy about photography?’
I love the fact that photography “freezes” that precious moment in time to be shared with generations to come.
I just love to capture the beauty of the Great Outdoors & all that lives within it. To be outdoors with the anticipation of what I might capture next is what drives me. I absolutely love what I do & I try to convey that in my work for people’s enjoyment.
I know this might sound a little bit corny but I truly believe I’ve finally found what I’m good at & what I believe, I was always meant to do.
‘What are your plans for the future?’
I would love to keep capturing images which give enjoyment to others and to keep gaining further knowledge/experience in the photography world.
I would also love to have a studio so that I could develop more with my portraiture work, maybe diverse into Newborn photography.
Whatever the future holds, I will always have my camera nearby no matter what!
‘What do you plan to do with your framing voucher?’
I’ve just ordered three frames with the winning voucher from Frames Express which I plan to use framing some Wildlife images from a Birds of Prey photography course which I attended a couple of weeks ago.
