Simon owned a portrait studio in South street and is the 3rd generation from a family of portrait photographers. He demonstrated the essentials of portrait photography with the importantance of lighting. He had brought along a selection of representative images of his own and his father and grandfather.

He gave us a summary of the essentials, covering Lighting, Pose and the most important, Expression.

We are short of volunteers to give the vote of thanks to our judges and speakers on the following dates.

This is important for the club so please be kind enough to let either Mike Hancock, Mike Harris or  Glyn Edmunds know by email if you are willing to give a VOT. Obviously we need someone for this coming meeting on the 6th. 

Now for the fun and games. On Dec 13th we have our Christmas special, Ho Ho Ho, which is a fun evening where we can enjoy ourselves by dressing in our favourite Christmas attire, enjoy some Christmas fare and drink while competing as teams in a Christmas quiz so I do hope as many of you as possible can attend. We need prizes donated for the raffle which can be brought to our next meeting on the 6th or on the night of the Christmas special on the 13th. For those who plan to attend could you also bring some finger food and drinks on the night for us all to enjoy.
