Peter Clark - President
Peter is a photographer, electrician, and long-term committee member of the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival. Talking of his photography, he says, "I have always been interested in photography from my parents' box brownie, to an instamatic, an SLR film camera when I set off for a trip around Australia in my late twenties and, after a hiatus of many years, recently to a digital SLR. I enjoy taking wildlife, wildflowers, candid shots and portraits."
