Thu 16 May 2024 - Bill Ward - In Search Of...

7:30pm

Paul Gallagher is a outstanding landscape photographer and sits on the RPS Fellowship Advisory Panel.  His talk tonight will be delivered by Zoom into our homes. 

He has spent much of the last seven years exploring the abandoned landscapes of America, the bitter cold elemental landscapes of winter in Hokkaido, Japan, and the vastness and grandeur of the granite spires of Yellow Mountain in China. He says the three environments ‘Could not be more different, but as a photographer, they left me spellbound.’

Thu 26 Oct 2023 - Phil Cooling FRPS - Weird and Wonderful…ish presentation

7:30pm

My presentation takes you on a journey from my early days with digital photography to achieving my F.R.P.S in 2014.

My early work is dreadful....I took anything & everything and then threw the Photoshop kitchen sink at them to add impact. I quickly got through this phase and began to produce images that won club competitions and gained entry to International Salons. This was my Wonderful...ish period but then I moved on to specializing in creative composite images, which some may find weird, but became the subject of my successful F.R.P.S. panel.
