Tony Davies AWPF LRPS
A self-taught amateur photographer living in Llandudno. He was born in Newport, south Wales, and qualified as an electrician.tony's Page
Work allowed him 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, his hobby nearly came to an end. But in 2011, while working in Iraq for the second time, he bought his first DSLR; a Nikon D7000. This was soon followed by a D800, a D810 and now a Z6.
Many hours of his spare time have been spent taking photographs and studying the various techniques required to improve his skills.
Retiring from work in 2015 Tony joined Conwy Camera Club and soon started entering club competitions, exhibitions and salons.
He gained his Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society in November 2015 his CPAGB in April 2017 and his AWPF in 2018.
Many of Tony’s photographs have been accepted into salons and exhibitions, both within the UK and overseas. He continues to enjoy, and immerse himself in his hobby, and believes that patience is one of the most important characteristics that help to make a good photographer.
