We're profiling another of the fantastic photographers in our camera club.

This week the focus is on one of our previous monthly competition winners, Louise Aldridge from Bexleyheath.

If you’re an enthusiastic amateur snapper and this inspires you to share your photos, you can get involved after joining News Shopper Camera Club on Facebook

Who or what inspired you to take up photography?

I was inspired to take up photography because I believe it's important to be able to look back at photos and remember the memories behind them. Photos are our own personal story and show a timeline of our lives with our loved ones and also the places we have visited. I read a quote once where it said: "We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone" - I love this and think it’s very true.

How long have you been taking pictures for?

I’ve always loved taking photos, I remember disposable cameras were all the rage when I was younger. I’d get really excited to see how the photos had come out once they had been developed. I progressed to a digital camera in my late teens but I've got a lot more interested in it in the last 10 years or so when I bought my first bridge camera.

What’s the story behind your favourite photo?

My favourite photo is the one I took of the sky over Tower Bridge when I was on my way to work one morning. I was on the train and actually went out of my way (and was slightly late to work as a result) to go to London Bridge to get a photo of it.

Do you have any advice for budding photographers?

You don't need a ridiculously expensive camera to take a good photo. Some of my photos I love the most have been taken on my mobile phone. In my opinion you just need a good eye.
