Sue and Jon Baker are dedicated hill walkers and photographers based in the beautiful county of Shropshire. We have travelled extensively around mainland Britain and have been lucky enough to have also visited Mongolia, France, Italy, Norway, Iceland and The USA,
We give talks (print and projected image) to clubs and societies around the United Kingdom. If you wish to book any of our talks please use the contact tab. Jon also produces audio visuals and for the last 9 years has produced shows for The Wrekin Salon and The Midland Salon of International Photography.
Successful Landscape Photography is not just about taking images. It is more about being outside, loving the place you are walking in, no matter what the weather. The beauty, peace and solitude you get can do wonders for your physical and mental well being. Be at one with the world, expect the unexpected, but most of all enjoy the natural world.
We have been members of a Camera Club for many years now and followed the traditional routes for trying to improve our photography. Sue has gained her Excellence FIAP (EFIAP) and also attained The BPE 3* award. Jon gained a double Associateship from The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) and in 1988 was awarded his Fellowship (FRPS) for a series of monochrome infra red slides. In 2002 he was awarded The Master of FIAP (MFIAP), probably one of the highest awards you can attain in photography. 17 years later in 2019 , he is still the only MFIAP in Shropshire. 2008 saw him awarded the Platinum level from FIAP (EFIAP/p). Since then we have gradually reduced our competition entries to a level where we do not enter many at all now. Photography has changed so much in the last two decades and now there are very few camera club photographers who practice landscape photography and fewer judges who understand it. (a personal view). I now find more interest on You Tube channels with such photographers as Nick Page, Thomas Heaton, Mads Peter Iveson and Brendan Van Son. For them, as with us, it is all about getting out there.Taking a photograph is a bonus.
Life is precious. "Do what you enjoy and enjoy what you do". The world is full of wonder and all you have to do is look.
