Another excellent summer syllabus meeting at CADWA last night.
We were treated to a presentation from our very own Vice President Martin Reece entitled “ Reaching New Heights”.
The first part of the evening transported us to the Alps and one of Martin’s passions, the Matterhorn and the surrounding features. Stunning prints were followed by an Audio Visual display. It covered the period from dawn to dusk on this iconic mountain. The range of colours and moods created by the changing light and shadows had to be seen to be believed. Nature does it so much better than Photoshop.
In the second half, we were treated to a look into Martin’s Photographer’s diary. This included a wide variety of events attended and photo opportunities grasped in 2014. It included images on a wide variety of subjects other than those which are Martin’s trademark. A trip to Fairford Air Tattoo, The Urban Art of Liverpool, Mersey River Festival, visit of the Giants, Elton John, Status Quo, a Waterfall in Wales and for the Wildlife photographers, Robins.
All in one quality evening.
Well Done Martin.
Folks I’m running a photography workshop 16th August in Liverpool.
I’m running a workshop experience day in conjunction with Olympus on 16th August in Liverpool. The cost is £60 for the day including refreshments, and there is a limit of 10 delegates. We will work on a concept, get hands on with light using standard speed lights, shoot some pictures and finish the pictures in Lightroom and Photoshop. Full details are on the website link below if you would like to come along, I’d appreciate it if you could share this post with anyone that might be interested.
Tony Myers FRPS talks to Paddy about his photography and Paddy shares six of his most memorable images with us! Click on the link here or go to Articles pages on this website.

Another great night was enjoyed by members at the South Liverpool Summer syllabus night on 10 July.
Tony explained the research for the presentation was undertaken jointly with another of our members Bill McDonough. They had intended to take it on a National tour but only got as far as our neighbours in Kensington. The Nation’s loss was our gain.
The presentation gave an insight into the life and times of both men and a showing of some of their very early images.
In addition, Tony who acts as a guide in the home and studio of the late Chambre Hardman in 59 Rodney Street Liverpool, was able to present a real insight into his working life and family life. This was accompanied by a digital tour and recordings from people who worked for the great man. The building is now in the care of the National Trust and a living Museum, well worth a visit.
Well done Tony, and your silent partner Bill!!
Tony did mention there is always a need for volunteers at 59 Rodney Street. So if you can spare a few hours a week, speak to Tony.
