We have an enquiry from David Powell who asks if any of our experienced members might be interested in a small project to take pictures at a birthday celebration in Birdham on the harbour, for about 3-4 hours in the late afternoon of the 7th July, for which he would pay a fee.

If anyone is interested please let me know and I will pass on David’s contact details so you can call him directly.

Focus Group Helpers Wanted

The Focus Group Exhibition is on at the Assembly Room starting Saturday.  It would be great if some of the muscular members of the Club could give us a hand getting the screens, etc. transported to town.  
 
The schedule is:
 
     – Thursday, 3:00PM at Tangmere to load up the screens, etc.
 
     – Friday, 8:30 AM at the Assembly Room to unload the trailer and set up.
 
Support has always been great whenever the Club has an exhibition and it would be appreciated if it continued for this occasion.
 
Thanks,
 
Pete Bamforth
 

Wildlife Photography in Sussex

David Plummer is a passionate, experienced and respected wildlife expert, photographer and conservationist. His images are featured in leading wildlife publications, he advises internationally on eco-tourism and is a proactive conservationist within the UK.

David’s interests in wildlife and photography began early in childhood – his earliest memory is of studying woodlice aged just two. At eight, he bought his first secondhand SLR camera and was delighted when he managed to get a full-frame shot of a blue tit at nest.

He only takes pictures of wild animals in their natural habitat.  Before photographing any new subject, he carries out extensive research and it is this, combined with his in-depth knowledge and endless patience that are the essential framework for his  breathtaking images.

In an interview with Sussex Life back in 2016, he talked about his love for Sussex which has everything – the Downs, the sea, woodlands. He talked about how he spent weekends in Sussex and honed his skills photographing flowers and butterflies, staying
in a campsite at the end of the road where he now lives with his garden fence literally on the South Downs National Park boundary. Becoming a volunteer photographer for the Sussex Wildlife Trust in 2002 was a turning point for him in becoming a wildlife photographer and he still works closely with the Trust – taking photographs in their reserves and running courses for them at their Wood Mills centre and also from Scrag Copse. All of which stands him in good stead for this presentation all about Wildlife
Photography in West Sussex.

Winchester Photographic Society’s Spring Lecture

Award winning Magnum photographer, Stuart Franklin will present the Winchester Photographic Society’s 2018 Spring Lecture at the Discovery Centre, Jewry Street Winchester SO23 8SB on Tuesday 27 March at 7.30. Tickets are available from the WPS website: https://www.winphotosoc.co.uk/index.php/what-s-on/winchester-photographic-society-special-events

In his presentation ‘The Documentary Impulse’ Franklin explores why we are driven to visually document our experiences and the world around us. He focuses on photography but traces this universal need through art, literature and science.
Looking at photojournalism, war photography and work recording our culture, Franklin identifies some of its driving impulses: curiosity, outrage, reform and ritual; the search for evidence, for beauty, for therapy; and the immortalisation of memory.

Arun Valley Line Community Rail Partnership

Request for Images – Arun Valley Line Community Rail Partnership

The Club has been approached by the Economic Development Officer at Horsham District Council with a request for assistance, as follows:

“Rowena Tyler co-ordinates the Arun Valley Line Community Rail Partnership (CRP) and has been tasked with re-designing and re-publishing the Arun Valley Line Guide. 10,000 copies of the Line Guide will be printed in the Spring and distributed to stations up and down the Arun Valley Line.  As a not for profit organisation, the CRP must get best value and as a contribution, Horsham District Council has offered to design the publication free of charge.

Rowena is seeking a beautiful photo for the new front cover and I wondered if Chichester Camera Club colleagues might want to donate one of their stunning photos.  Rowena would be able to credit the artist in the Line Guide.  The photo would need to highlight one of the stunning attractions/views accessible along the Arun Valley Line, which covers stations from Bosham, Bognor and Littlehampton up to Gatwick Airport, via Arundel.

The formal deadline for submissions is 22 January but bearing in mind the late timescale of this request, the deadline has been extended until 29 January 2018.”

The technical requirements are as follows:

A high-resolution JPG or TIF file that is 300dpi. File size should be no smaller than 1MB. Preference will be given to portrait format images on the cover, although the designers may be able to achieve a desirable crop with the right landscape image.

If you need more information, please contact Rowena Tyler direct. Her email is: rowena@sussexcrp.org
