2019 September: Michael Nicholson – Architecture photography

A great night of architecture photography and very interesting concepts and techniques to improve our own images.

It is always great when we can hear directly from someone with such experience in the field. Not only they have a lot to teach, but also the passion they transmit is motivating and contagious.

We really enjoyed the stories shown by Michael’s images of those incredible buildings.

2019 August: Matt Hudson – Astro Photography

We had a great talk about astro photography, and thanks to Matt Hudson we all expanded our knowledge and interest in this type of photography. It will take us a bit to get the math right, but certainly hearing from Matt and seeing his amazing images makes you want to dust off the old slide rule and compass to go out and shoot.

2019 July: Alfonso Calero – Raw workflow; from raw to finish

For a long time a friend of the club, Alfonso has always helped us in so many different ways. This time in particular, with his presentation he gave us a view of his process and some great tips for all of us to go and practice.

Everything, from his mood boards on Pinterest, and how he uses inspiration from different disciplines to create his fantastic images, to his life experiences and those places he’s visited that are so important for what he does today.

Here just a small sample of Alfonso’s work:

Many thanks Les for your most informative talk on Lightroom, Photoshop and Nix software Tuesday evening. Your down to earth explanations of the various tools, and shortcuts should prove very valuable, and I found it quite amazing what can be achieved with seemingly little effort.

2019 May: Michael Hing & Eric Lippey – Ethiopia

Tuesday 14/05

Two of our own Eric Lippey and Michael Hing shared with us their experience in Ethiopia, and it was a great visual experience. Their images were astonishing and the story of their experience was fascinating and edifying.

It is great when photography is beautiful and captivating, but even better when it takes you to places, when it teaches you something new and changes the idea you had about the subject, and that is exactly what Michael and Eric managed that night.

Besides being great at public speech, they are also amazing photographers; if you want to see more of their images head to our gallery, or even better come join us on our competition nights.

Tuesday 12/02

What an amazing presentation night. We all loved it and the comments couldn’t be better. It was hard to believe that this was his first time presenting to other photographers, because it was both entertaining and inspiring.

Jan took us trough his photographic journey: his first digital camera and those first long exposures, how he has grown as a photographer, his adventures to get those amazing astro photographs, the excitement of capturing the perfect storm, the gear he likes and the thinking behind his incredible images.

The time lapse and videos made an already great presentation even better.
This was a great way to start the year, I hope he presents again in the future.
