Hi Folks, The rhodo’s and azaleas are at their best . Cameras all polished, ready to create!
This will be held at the St Johns building, Monday 14th November, 7.30pm , please note the change of time!
Our monthly speaker will be Brent Hollow who has been a travel photographer of note.
He has a long relationship with photography and has worked in the health industry for many years.
He will be presenting “Seven countries in 6 weeks, 6500 frames.” He will also present his current image in the Wallace Art Awards (noting one image has been acquired by the Wallace Art Collection).
The set subject is “Rust”, hoping for great red, orange, brown tones.
The images need to be in by the evening of the meeting.
Please be aware of the new sizing requirements.
This is the last of this year’s competitions; but wait, there’s more.
We have decided to have a Best Annual image competition. Terry Maguire has agreed to be the judge.
One image per member.
The image can be any you have entered this year, or any other images that you have captured this year.
Images to be submitted by the usual time, midnight 14th November; usual format.
Submit as a Casual Submission on the club image submission page.
We have chosen 20th November to be the day we traverse the Nevis Valley as a day trip. Of course this will be weather and snow permitting. It is hoped we will be able to share transport.
Please contact Mike Horder for further info.
