Tony Davies A self-taught amateur photographer living in Llandudno: I was born in Newport, south Wales, and qualified as an electrician. Work allowed me to become an expatriate for twenty out of the following forty-three years. Working in places like Saudi Arabia and Iraq during the nineteen seventies and eighties made it difficult to pursue photography. As a result, my hobby nearly came to an end. But in 2011, while working in Iraq for the second time, I bought my first DSLR; a Nikon D7000. This was soon followed by a D800, and eventually a D810. I also now have a Nikon Z6! Many hours of my spare time were spent taking photographs and studying the various techniques required to improve my skills. Retiring from work in 2015 I joined Conwy Camera Club and soon started entering club competitions, exhibitions and salons. I gained the Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society in November 2015 and my CPAGB in April 2017 followed by an AWPF in 2018. Many of my photographs have been accepted into salons and exhibitions both within the UK and overseas. I continues to enjoy, and immerse myself, in my hobby, and believe that patience is one of the most important characteristics that help to make a good photographer.
