I have been taking photographs for many years starting with Pentax and Olympus 35mm film
cameras. When digital became popular, I acquired a Canon Rebel and used it for many years.
Three years ago, I decided to try to really improve my skills and undertook a project 365 which
challenged me to take and post at least one photo each day for a year. During this time, I acquired a new Canon full frame camera and several lenses. I joined the Kamloops Photo Arts Club in 2018 to learn and grow further as a photographer and meet like minded people. I try not to limit myself to one type of photography but do gravitate to wildlife and shy away from landscape.
I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains when I moved west. I moved to Kamloops in 2007. A real passion of mine is a love for the outdoors. I enjoy capturing and sharing my digital images from my adventures such as hiking, kayaking and skiing. I am continuously on the search for that one of a kind image image. Here are a few of my favorites, enjoy!
I’m a journalist in both print and photography. There is not a lot happening these days of COVID-19 isolation. Everything seems to be ‘up in the air’. I think clouds express the situation perfectly. Here are a few vaporous images.
I started photography at 19 and soon after began developing and printing in the darkroom. Now I continue to do so digitally. I love all aspects of photography but especially producing the final print.
Since moving to Merritt in 2015 I have immersed myself in photography and printing. I bought a small in home printing and framing business in 2017 and now have a 44 inch Epson P9000 printer, which produces museum quality prints. Please visit my website: angelinabrooymansphotography.com.
I have always liked the idea of taking an image from out there and capturing it, being able to store it and then able to view it at any time. The cameras that I use are, Pentax Optio WG-2, Pentax K-5 and a Pentax K-3ii. I enjoy taking pictures of anything that is kind of out of the ordinary, be it old, new, alive, stationary, mineral, vegetable, animal hell I'll take a picture of just about anything now that it cost nothing to view them. I am hoping that KPAC members will help me attain a higher level of photographic skills by sharing their experiences with me. As always keep your eye on the subject before you click.
In preparation for retirement, I took up photography in the 90's and joined the Regina Camera Club. My photographic interests at that time was primarily wildflowers.
I moved to Kamloops in '03 and joined KPAC. I resisted the move from film to digital, however, have now succumbed to it.
I currently use both a Sony and a Nikon system. The Sony is an A700 with a 50 mm macro, a 28-105 kit lens and a 50-500 Sigma lens. The Nikon is a D300s with a Sigma 120-300 f2.8 lens My current interests are anything in nature.
Since 2005 I have been an active digital photographer. Living with limited vision since birth, electronic technology has allowed me to express myself artistically as never before. I shoot with both Nikon and Fuji equipment. My scope includes primarily landscape and travel pursuits, but I dabble in most forms. Recently I have enjoyed working with Chris Harris and Dennis Ducklow in creative expressionism. Postprocessing is done in Lightroom and Photoshop and I do basic graphic design in InDesign. Given my inability to drive I welcome folks to shoot with. I presently serve as secretary to the KPAC executive.
I purchased a used DSLR, with kit lens, in the fall of 2016. After 3 months of watching YouTube videos on photography, I felt confidant to purchase a quality lens for bird photography. Over time, my interest in photography expanded and I started using the kit lens to take pictures of subjects other than birds and to enjoy the creativity of post processing.
Photography has always been a form of meditation and relaxation for me. I've been doing it since the early-70s and continue to enjoy it as a way to get away while keeping my focus. I use both Nikon full-frame gear, Olympus M43 equipment, and a compact Sony that stays in my pocket for those interested in that kind of stuff. In the end it's about the images we create. If you find anything here that makes you smile, well, that's extra great! Enjoy.

Became interested in photography about 1958 when given a Brownie camera. Within a couple of years, was “helping” my dad develop B & Ws in a downstairs darkroom. By 1972 owned a Pentax with 3 interchangeable lenses, which I lugged around Europe. Since then I’ve used Epson and Panasonic. “Graduated” to Canon in about 2004. Currently have a T2i with 2 interchangeable lenses and an SX50. For this first gallery, I’m testing images, resolution and colour from old photos - about 2006
