Members Presentation Night
Wednesday 16th April is our first Members Presentation Night for the year and will be a great opportunity to present a sample of your work. This is not a competition but rather a showcase of members’ work.
Don’t be shy! Show the club what you’ve been working on. You may have a particular interest that you’d like to share, or images that you feel are unsuitable for competition but that you love or would love to get feedback on. Images should be on a topic or theme and you will have the opportunity to speak about your work. Prints, photobooks, electronic images or audiovisuals are all acceptable. AVs should be no longer than 5 minutes, preferably less than 4 minutes. Bring your electronic images and AVs on the night, on a CD, DVD or flash drive.
Remember, this is a non-competitive evening – so be in it!

Mark Kelly - Wed 19th March Presentation
Award-winning photographer, Mark Kelly, will be our presenter on 19th March.
Mark’s particular interest is landscape photography. He loves the challenges it poses and the way the right mix of light and weather, together with some artistic interpretation, can transform even the most mundane landscape into a wonderful image that triggers a different emotional response from each viewer.
In Mark’s words: "I love clouds, trees and rocks! I want to move beyond what the camera sees to what my mind thinks it sees. Sometimes the resulting image appears as imagined, other times images take on a new life, different to the original intent. It is the endless possibilities that make the process of image making, not picture-taking, so stimulating."
He sees his photography as making art, rather than taking pictures, experimenting with a myriad of techniques with the only limitation being his imagination. Mark believes that "It’s not the gear, but the idea" and often uses the convenience of an iPhone plus apps like Snapseed to "sketch" his ideas.
