“Close and Macro Nature Photography” given by Daniel Bridge

Originally hailing from Billericay, Essex and now back again after 18 years down the road in Hutton, I have been taking photographs for many years, buying my first SLR in 1996, unfortunately after taking a two month trip to Australia, but just in time for my honeymoon! Now I’m a full-time photography tutor with 17 years experience, and a daughter as well as a wife!

Having trained as a Guitar maker at the London Guildhall University, I subsequently worked for the Fire Service and Police in admin roles, but it wasn’t until I decided to concentrate fully on photography that I felt truly comfortable in my working life
