Wed 27 Feb 2019 - Robert Millin MFIAP, FBPE, EFIAP/p, MPSA, SPSA, DPAGB, GPU Hermes

7:30pm

My talk is called "Confessions Of A Competition Addict" and it describes my photographic journey from my first club, BPE and FIAP competition entries to current day successes. The first half focuses on Sports photography and the second half on Travel, Nature, People, BPE and FIAP comps. Lots of images, hints and tips and hopefully some laughs too. The talk will be a PDI but I will also bring prints for people to look at during the break.

Non-members are welcome to visit - £3.

Wed 24 Oct 2018 - PRESIDENT'S CHALLENGE

7:30pm

The 2018 Challenge is to produce a triptych in print format

"A triptych is a set of three associated artistic, literary, or musical works intended to be appreciated together."
I will be more interested in the quality of the content and imagination displayed in your set of three, than with the quality of the production. Three small trade processed prints glued to a board will be OK, although, obviously better production may sway my decision.  All the entries must be on 50x40 boards...
