Newark & District Photographic Society October Programme


Hello Lincoln Camera Club.


Here in Blighty we are  now well established into our winter Programme and can look forward to October and “the season of mellow fruitfulness” that surely cannot be far behind.


On 1st October we have a visit by a top-class professional photographer that  have seen several times before and I am pleased to own four of five books by him.  Ian Beesley is from the west of Yorkshire and is a social documentary photographer, as the title of his talk might suggest: Photography and the City.  Ian is Course Leader on the MA course at the University of Bolton, and for his long experience and tremendous reputation was recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society.  I am looking forward to the talk and the opportunity to buy another book to add to my collection.

8th October will bring Duncan Hill MPAGB,EFIAP to Newark with his presentation “Ready, Steady, Go!”  Duncan plans to show a “warts and all look at how he takes action shots, plus nature photography and some “dance” pictures.  Duncan is a leading member of Scunthorpe CC in the north of Lincolnshire, and a member of GAMMA Photoforum based in Shipley.


15th October and we will have an evening with the Managing Director of “onOne Software”, one of Britains most important distributors of software, including Lightroom and Photoshop.  Here’s a chance to see what is new to the market and where the industry is going in the near future.


22nd October is when we hold Heat 2 of Photographer of the Year, with prints to be judged by Gary Langley from Nottingham, a member of Rolls-Royce (Derby)PS.


On the 29th we have the second part of POTY Heat 2 when Peter Jones ARPS, DPAGB tackles our Digitally Projected Images.


Some of you will have seen reports of extreme weather and flooding in parts of the north of England but here in the East Midlands we seem to have escaped such traumas.  Indeed it has been quite mild and sunny much of the time.  It is to be hoped that the winter to come is not as harsh as the last year or two but looking on the bright side, we can hope for some snow and decent light in which to capture exciting pictures.

Regards to you all,

Peter Yeo”
