Meet The Outlaws – Sue Jackson

Apart from a brief fling with a Zenith film camera when I was a teenager, and later taking holiday and family photos, I didn’t really get into photography until I bought my first digital camera which allowed me to see what I had taken instantly, instead of waiting a week or more for prints to come back. I then took a City & Guilds course in photography.  After completing the course I wanted to continue to learn more about photography so I joined NOPS, which gave me the support I needed, and with monthly competitions it also gave me a reason to go out and take images I would not normally have thought about, and a reason to practice my post processing skills (and still does).

Meet the Outlaws Gibbo

In the 80’s I carried out studio work for a marketing company which began my interest. In the 90’s I became Digital Print Manager for a company and even though I was working abroad I was travelling around a lot and did not have time to carry on with my photography. I met my wife in 2006 and her (adult) son was very interested in photography and this sparked my interest again having someone to talk to about equipment etc. I then purchased my first Nikon, a D300 digital camera. Due to health confines I only used my camera infrequently. I then purchased by Sony AR74 in 2022 and following a chance meeting with Nick Pearce at Langar airfield (both of us taking photographs), this spurred me on to join the Outlaws in 2023.
