My Photography Journey – Nick Barber

Guest speaker and ex-member, Nick joins us to share his photography journey. After losing his eyesight, his job in the RAF, and his confidence, he received support from ‘Blind Veterans UK‘. ““I’ve been attending photography weeks at their Brighton Centre where I’ve honed my skills and got my confidence up. “They built me a photography studio in my back garden and I even had the chance to meet my hero, David Bailey. I can’t thank them enough for helping me rediscover my passion for photography.” Nick will also cover the basics of infra-red photography.
