Known as “The Welsh Dragon” because of her signature on her prints, Margaret’s love of photography began in capturing the Slate Landscapes of her native North Wales. Committed to printing her images in Monochrome she believes that a photograph is taken with a camera but the image was made in the Darkroom, which changed to the “Light-room” when she took up the challenge of Digital photography. A Sponsored Lecturer for Ilford, using their film and paper her first link with Fotospeed was sponsorship to use Fotospeed Toners. She has enjoyed their support and friendship for more than twenty years
Her first Fellowships were awarded for Monochrome Darkroom prints followed by Fellowships in Travel and Nature (landscape) Digital Prints given by SWPP (The Societies). An essay on Village Life Ghana was awarded an Irish Fellowship and Master Artist of FIAP. Most recent award “Associate of WPF” gained with Mono Digital Prints “Children of the World”.

Her latest challenge is publishing books including, Village Life Ghana, Tribal Life Ethiopia, Landscapes of New Zealand, Sea and Slate North Wales and Orangutans of Borneo.
Margaret believes that “aiming for Distinctions or Awards gives photographers an opportunity to work towards a goal and results in an improvement in their photography”. Her experience was gained Assessing Panels during twenty years service on the LRPS panel as Member and Chairman, currently Chairman of the Disabled Photographers’ Society Distinctions Panel and a Moderator on Open University Digital Imaging Course, which has led to her running workshops and helping on a one to one basis many photographers achieve their aim. Her latest project is running Workshops “Going for Distinctions” for the Fotospeed Academy.
