Thursday 8th October

I’m covering for Jan while he’s away for a while and had the pleasure of introducing Tim Pile yesterday evening.  Tim is a self-confessed amateur photographer, but one of the highest standards, and a highly awarded photographer with a world-wide reputation at that.  He self deprecatingly also claimed to be the creator of the most corny talk tiles, and it has to said that his ‘Have I got nudes for you’, while clear in its intent, does some disservice to the beauty and quality of his images, many shot with just superb natural light in the natural and built environments.  He’ll be back in area at Bognor Camera Club next April if you missed his polished and excellent presentation – or indeed would like to see it again.

Next week there’s a change to the programme as Barry Senior, who was to judge the first Advanced PDI of the Year Competition, was caught up in the accident on the A27 earlier this week.  I’m pleased to say he was unhurt, but he and his wife were pretty shaken.  We wish them both a speedy recovery, and will be pleased to welcome Giles Barkley as out judge who has kindly stepped in.

Gavin Hoey is doing the rounds and you can catch him the 19th Oct at Southampton Camera Club, 27th Oct at Worthing Camera Club and the 12 th Nov at Southwick Camera Club. Check their websites for location and timing.

Thursdays meeting was a resounding success with Pete Whieldon’s incredible engagement and dedication that rewarded us with a series of outstanding wild life images coupled with his explanations how they were achieved. He brought along his array of equipment and his owls that were as silent and enraptured as all our members.
