Mags Brown is an amateur photographer based in East Lothian, Scotland. She has had a keen interest in art from an early age but her photography was mostly to take pictures of family holidays or occasions. When she first visited the Greek Island of Kefalonia her holiday snaps of the stunning scenery were a disappointment. On returning to Kefalonia, the following year, having invested in a new DSLR camera she managed to capture the magic of the deep blue seas and golden beaches. It was from this point she developed her eye for landscape photography.
Mags took early retirement from her post as Head Teacher in a primary school and since has had the time to develop her photography skills. She used photographic imagery a lot in her teaching career as a way to provoke discussion and imagination. As part of her project on celebrating skills with her pupils in the school she had an exhibition of her photographs to show the new skill she was learning. Mags regularly shared her photography journey with the children to update them on the progress she was making.
Since her retirement she has completed a number of courses with various professional photographers to expand her knowledge and skills. She undertook some basic courses, with three different professional photographers, to develop her understanding of photography skills and camera techniques. Most recently she undertook a short photography course at Edinburgh University which saw her complete a long exposure project. Throughout this course Mags researched new techniques to enhance her skills and has since continued her work in double exposure as an avenue for exploring images. (See post in Blog)
