Adrian Herring believes that photography is best presented in print form and is very happy to be associated with Fotospeed. He says that he has always preferred the printed image to seeing them projected, as he believes that the viewer has a better chance of appreciating the subject matter by either holding a print or admiring it on a wall.
Adrian has had great pleasure seeing other peoples’ prints at exhibitions or when judging competitions over a long period. His first print was produced at the age 16 and he joined a photographic society three years later. He has retained a passionate interest in photography ever since, moving happily from the darkroom to digital printing. He particularly enjoys seeing the work of club members in different regions of the country and is fascinated by the variation in subject matter and style across the regions. He has observed that there can be differences in the choice of paper base with some clubs preferring a matte finish and others a pearl or gloss base. He likes to think that the photographer has thought carefully about the paper base that suits their images.
Adrian is available to talk on a variety of subjects or judge competitions. His contact details can be found in the WCPF Directory or the PAGB Handbook.
