Michael Anderson LRPS


After developing an interest in photography from an early age, I studied photography at the Southend School of Art & Design between 1979 - 1982 under Peter Fredrick and gained my City and Guilds in General Photography.  This gave me the foundation of my photographic knowledge. 


I joined the Colchester Photographic Society in 1999.  Having been previously sceptical about camera clubs I decided to give one a try.  I found by meeting people with a similar interest  gave my photography a real boost because of the encouragement and inspiration I received from the other members.  It also gave me the opportunity to make many friends.  In 2001 I took on the role of Secretary which is a post I held until 2012.


I went on to join the Royal Photographic Society and gained my Licentiateship (LRPS) in 2003 with a series of Lakeland landscapes. Going for my Licentiateship gave my photography a real sense of purpose and a feeling of great satisfaction when it was achieved.  A Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) is a level of distinction set by the Royal Photographic Society, and is a standard of achievement recognised throughout the world.


Professionally I shoot digitally, although I still like using film and vintage cameras for my personal work.  I love Photoshop because the control over the images is simply amazing.  By investing in a scanner I have found I can enjoy the best of both digital and film.


I am a professional Photographer and Graphic Designer working under the name of Broadhouse Media.  Under the name of Michael Anderson LRPS Photography & Design, I market my own personal work in various galleries, and by exhibiting my work.  I also produce Greeting Cards, Postcards and Gifts, on an aviation theme, which are sold in aviation museums.  I offer one to one photography tuition through my School of Photography which has been running for the last seven years.  I am married to Angela and live in Wivenhoe near Colchester.
