Doug Berndt ARPS AFIAP

Thank you for visiting my photography site.

I'm based in Edinburgh, Scotland. After graduating in Physics, I spent 30 years in the defence industry in a variety of Engineering and Management roles. This took me to many corners of the globe and one of my regrets is that I did not carry a camera with me for much of that.

My interest in photography goes back over 40 years and I cut my teeth on film, black & white and colour printing, and transparency development. I have found that digital technology has liberated my photography. I joined the Royal Photographic Society in February 2012 and was awarded ARPS in September 2013 for a panel of prints in the Contemporary category. I was previously awarded LRPS in November 2012. You can view my successful print panels in the galleries. I'm a member of the RPS Digital Imaging Group (DiG) and of the RPS Contemporary Group. Former organiser and webmaster for the RPS DiG Scotland Centre, which meets regularly through the year in Bridge of Allan. Current Senior Vice President and Syllabus Secretary of Edinburgh Photographic Society. Also Competition Secretary for EPS's Creative Digital Group.

I have several acceptances and awards for my photography in International Salons. I achieved AFIAP in 2017 and have met the criteria to apply for EFIAP in 2018. I am a Scottish Photographic Federation accredited Judge.

I enjoy images that tell a story. My main photographic interests lie in Landscapes, Travel and Wildlife. I'm also partial to Monochrome images.

My photography gets me out and about and I can often be found with a camera and a "lens of the day" in the Pentland Hills south of Edinburgh.

Enjoy my images and let me know your thoughts through the comments form. As Ansel Adams said "There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer." As the viewer you are important to me.

Many thanks for stopping by.

Best wishes,

Doug
