2018 / 19 Keynote Speaker & Presentation Evening

2018 / 19 Keynote Speaker & Presentation Evening

 

Last night was the sixth and most successful to date Earl Shilton Camera Club Keynote speaker evening. There were over 100 in attendance to see Charlie Waite who is now firmly established as one of the world’s leading Landscape photographers. It was supported by local firm Paper Spectrum who host a stand showing some of their Photographic, Fine Art and Graphic Papers and who provided one of the raffle prizes with others coming from Charlie and the club. Charlies talk was a well balance discussion about what he thinks makes a good landscape image which included the work flow / mental thought process that’s involved in achieving a good image. This was followed by a digital image presentation of some of his work with discussions on what was good about the images and from where he drew his inspiration and finally there was a Q & A session.

The follow video is similar to what we saw

After the interval we had the presentation evening with Charlie presenting the trophies for the Secretaries Challenge to Ian Waite for “The Scamp”

Steve Pears the Neville Jackson  Image of the Year for “Four men in a boat”

And the Chairman’s Trophy which this year went to a member Trish Rudin who the committee felt has shown the most improvement in their work since joining the club.

James Botterill received the Trevor Wain UK Landscape trophy from Trevor for his image “Combesgate Beach”

And Gary Wood was presented with the Wendy Jarvis Memorial Trophy for Photographer of the Year from Wendy’s Grandson Henry.
