2023-2024 Round 2 Competition – Judges’ Bio

Moira Fenner

Over the past 20 years, photography has provided me with many opportunities to learn, travel and make lasting friendships.   

My first interest was bird photography and I have spent many an early morning enjoying quiet time in nature.   Since retiring, I am photographing a variety of birds visiting our backyard feeders.  

In the last few years, my interest has turned to travel/landscape photography.  Visits to the Canadian Rockies in Alberta and British Columbia, the American South-West, Yosemite and San Francisco, Scotland and most recently Namibia, have opened opportunities to see and photograph the natural beauty around us.   The motivation and satisfaction for me is capturing a moment in time and remembering what you felt then for years afterwards.  

Flower photography is my new obsession and we plant our backyard garden with that in mind.   I have recently learned to digitally paint my photographed flowers in Photoshop, a wonderful creative outlet.

I joined the Oshawa Camera Club in 2014 and enjoy the opportunities provided in the Club to challenge and improve my photography skills.  I am an accredited Ontario Council of Camera Clubs’ Judge and have experience judging at the local camera club, provincial and international levels.  I am also Competitions Director for the Club.
