Tickets are now available to Members of both Chichester and Bognor Regis Camera Clubs for this special event on 11th April with a lecture by nationally renowned photographer Eamonn McCabe. The cost is £5 to Members of either clubs and, should there still be capacity, will be opened to other clubs at £10. Tickets can be purchased at the Club on Thursday evenings. The event is being jointly sponsored by the clubs as part of an initiative to bring some of the UK’s top photographers to the area. Eamonn worked for The Guardian and Observer before freelancing since 2001 and some of the achievements during his career include:
Sports Photographer of the Year for a record 4 times covering 3 Olympics;
In 1985 was named News Photographer of the Year for his work at the Heysel Stadium disaster
Won Picture Editor of the Year 6 times;
Appears regularly on radio and TV talking about photography and currently has several pieces of work at the National Portrait Gallery.
Photographers of this calibre are normally outside the budget of an individual Club but the joint sponsorship could make this viable providing we get strong support at the event from both Clubs. If successful we will do more such events in the future.
The lecture entitled ‘A Life in Pictures’ will be held at the Mitre Lecture Theatre of Chichester University (Chichester Campus) which has a 198 seating capacity at 7:30pm on Wednesday 11th April. Please put the date in your diary and make a special effort to attend.
