I have a wide selection of
hobbies & interests, as listed below.
They are in no particular order.
Since becoming a Christian in 1988, I have become a
very active member of
Baptist Church I currently head-up
the premises team at the church. I am also involved with the church's
performing arts ministry, (see below), and run the church's technical team.
& Light; Within
our church we have a very talented performing arts group, and I am involved
with all technical aspects of the productions and tours that they do.
Being equally at home with both basic sound & lighting rigs, I can often be
found planning, building or operating either, sometimes both at once! I have
assisted several churches in the planning, purchase and installation of
sound systems. Working with others, I have also been involved in a
number of bigger, outdoor events, as well as youth events in various venues
around Leicester. In July 2005, I rigged and operated sound &
lighting for Scripture Union at the Baptist World Congress at the NIA,
Birmingham. An amazing experience with 13,000 people there. (Not all
with us though!). I head up our church's technical team and am
involved in training others as well as operating AV kit myself. I
acted as projectionist and technician for the National Audio-Visual
Championships for several years.
For many years now I have been a keen photographer. I joined
Forest photographic society originally, but left there to join my local
society, Oadby Camera Club (3 years as Chairman). This club folded in
2003 due to lack of members. I am now a member of
Leicestershire Photographic Society, one of the oldest groups in the
country. I am a Past President and former Competition Secretary of the
society. Being interested in Audio-visual photography, I am also
a member of the East Midlands Audio-Visual Group, currently acting
as their treasurer. Wanting to embrace the latest
developments, I was one of the founding members of Braunstone Digital Group
when it started in 1998. I gained a Credit of the Photographic
Alliance of Great Britain, (CPAGB) for my Audio-visual photography in
1999. To see some of my pictures and find out more about my
Audio-Visuals, see the 'photos' page.
Ever since I was taken
camping by my parents, I have been keen on camping, and this forms the basis
for the majority of my holidays. I regularly camp with the
Baptist Campers, enjoying the fun & fellowship of holidaying with
a big group of friends.
When I get the time, which usually means when on holiday, I enjoy walking. I regularly combine this
with photography, using the walking to reach better vantage points.
