Announcing Editor Ralph Bridgland
It is with great pleasure that we introduce CAPA’s new Canadian Camera Magazine Editor, Mr. Ralph Bridgland.
Ralph is the treasurer of the London Camera Club and an active photographer. He spent 34 years as a journalist with the London Free Press with experience that includes reporting, senior copy editor, page designer and assistant section editor.
In his own words:
“My journalistic experience was at the London (Ontario) Free Press. During my 34 year at the daily newspaper, my job description included reporter, senior copy editor, assistant section editor and page designer – all of which hopefully will play a role in maintaining the level of excellence Sheena has brought to Canadian Camera.
While I dabbled in photography off and on during my earlier years, it wasn’t until four years ago that the shutter bug took a bite and didn’t let go. Purchasing an entry-level DSLR and taking two introductory classes led to myu joining the London Camera club.
The rest, as they say, is history. Starting out as a novice and learning through competition that nobody appreciates my photos as much as I do, I have managed to reach the advanced level within the club, which is more a testament to the invaluable lessons learned through the club and its talented members than it is to my own expertise.
While I look forward to the challenge ahead at Canadian Camera, I won’t succeed without your help. Please contact me with story and photo ideas. I look forward to hearing from all of you. Together we can continue to make Canadian Camera special.”
