Barry Dickinson DPAGB QPSA BPE2* – Christine Dickinson DPAGB QPSA BPE2*

We are both keen amateur photographers living in Lancashire UK.

We started our photographic journey in 2008 by purchasing Canon DSLR’s and joining a local camera club in Darwen Lancashire.

During our time at Darwen CC , a small club with about 20 members we entered club and external competitions. Whilst at Darwen CC we were encouraged to attain PAGB (Photographic Alliance of GB) accreditation. With the assistance of the L&CPU (Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union) and their mentoring scheme in 2012 we both attained CPAGB (Credit) with the PAGB

We joined a further camera club Ribblesdale to further our development.

In 2016 we moved to Whittle le Woods and joined Chorley Photographic Society a club of over 100 members that competes both in the UK and internationally – with great success. Over the last few years we have been encouraged at Chorley PS to broaden our horizons and enter BPE (British Photographic Exhibitions ) together with international salons and exhibitions hosted by FIAP (Fedration Internationale De L’Art Photographique) and PSA (Photographic Society of America)

In November of 2019 we both attained DPAGB (Distinction) with the PAGB
