About the Photographers:
Ady Kerry QEP
My earliest photographic memories are using a beautifully clunky Zenit –B to take pictures of butterflies aged about 10 or 11. Moving to a house with views of the RAF Waddington flight-path this single incident had the most influence over my photographic career. In 1986 the obvious thing for a budding photographer was to join the Royal Air Force as a Photographer (Ground). Serving for 9 years with tours at High Wycombe and with the Army at Ashford, I learnt much about myself and image making. In 1995 I left to pursue a freelance existence, which I still do today.
The technology has changed so much and photography has had a renaissance with the advent of digital imagery and easy transmission of images – though it is questionable as to whether the overall quality of work is as good across the industry.
My work is dominated by sport. I provide GB and England Hockey with action imagery from international and leagues games, along with publicity images and feature portraits of players for press releases. I also provide a sports service to Kent on Sunday, covering, Gillingham FC and Kent Cricket which are published on a weekly basis.
I am keen to encourage the next generation into the profession and always happy to help with portfolio critiques, judging their competitions, taking workshops or giving talks to photographic clubs around the county.
John Gichigi recently retired from Getty Images after 30 years having covered ten Olympic Games and numerous world title fights in his specialist field of Boxing. He was introduced to photography as part of his architect’s course at theUniversityofWestminsterand got hooked. Switching courses he then became freelance before joining Allsport/Getty Images in 1979. Over his thirty years in the industry John has been rewarded with numerous awards in recognition of his work.
Tom Lloyd ABIPP, ARPS:
I became a photographer in 1969 whilst serving in the Army, as one of the few dedicated photographers within the Forces in general, life was pretty busy, involved in all areas of imagery. I left the Army in 1994 and began my second career with Kent Police, imagery again was very much part of my working life.
I retired from full time employment in March 2012 and intend to carry on capturing images as and when I can, the major difference will be the pictures will only be the things, people and places that I want to photograph! I love to travel and hopefully I will be able to continue doing so. Over the years I have noticed that I can tell whether I like or place or not by the number of images I take there! So far and still, New Zealand is by far my favourite location. I must return there and capture some serious images.
I will also be running workshops and I hope helping budding photographers along the way.
My intention to exhibit images from the places I have been, some old some not so old, from New Zealand to |Dungeness.
