An evening with John Nathan APRS.
John is an amateur photographer, has been interested in photography and particularly travel photography for most of his life. He has been a member of the Royal Photographic Society for over 30 years, gaining an LRPS in 1989, and an ARPS in 2010. His interest is undimmed, and now gives lectures and judges in addition to being an active member of a photography society.
He had a mild interest in photography at school, though did not pursue it. However he gradually formed a slide collection. At first he used Kodachrome (a little blue), then Agfa (slightly red), but finally Fujichrome. His first camera was a Praktika, bought from a friend. Around 1985 he joined the Royal Photographic Society and in 1989 obtained the licentiateship (LRPS) from a set of slides. He owned several Canon cameras, from an AE1P to a Canon EOS5D
His long distance travelling started in 1988, when visiting Hong Kong, Thailand and Bali. Bali was where he got into serious photography.
In 1994 he was a member of the British Mount Everest Medical expedition and has been lucky enough to visit the Everest region twice.
He took over as Chairman of an RPS digital group based in Bracknell, joined Tandridge Photographic Society in 2005 and has been a member there for 15 years.
