As part of my ongoing learning I am currently a member of the following organisations which have opened up so many opportunities for me both in meeting new people and in exhibiting my images. I thought it worth highlighting them on their own page so please take the time to visit their websites as I am sure you will enjoy what they have to offer.
SINWP The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers is for those who enjoy photographing the natural world. Wildlife photographers are devoted to capturing animals in action, such as in flight, their natural habitats, hunting, eating, fighting, or just simply in their natural environment. Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures.
Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography. Landscape photography is a genre intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic.
The Devon Artist Network (DAN) is a membership organisation set up to promote the visual arts and create opportunities for artists and makers in Devon. DAN was established in 2004 and is a non-profit making organisation initiating a range of projects across the county including the well established Devon Open Studios (DOS) event that runs annually in September. The Devon Artists Network provides great opportunities to showcase your work in a variety of different ways as well as a wealth of information on exhibitions and funding sources.
