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.

Meeting this Thursday 17th September

We will have a Print Walk and everyone is encouraged to bring photographs to show. Everyone is invited to bring printed images, ANY SIZE or TYPE from HOLIDAY SNAPS to SERIOUS IMAGES (finished or in progress).

We will lay out one table to for each member to display their prints and give everyone time to circulate and look and discuss the images with their authors.

Depending of the number of participants and the room and limited tables we will probably need several rounds giving everyone time to see each others pictures.

Some of the most respected photographers of the club and the selection committee will be on hand to give comments.

Meeting Thursday 10th September

The meeting last Thursday was dedicated to Ken Scott ARPS who took us on a personal wandering in La Alpujarra, an eclectic region of Andalucia on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada in Spain showing an insight in his long affection and love of the place illustrated with a collection of images, video clips and music. He radiated his inspiration to the members with his sympathetic approach to putting together a beautiful program about this very special region in Spain. See Kens images on:
