The Matterhorn and a Photographers Diary.

Article written by Bert Whittlestone

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”.

Matterhorn Piste

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.

An evening with the works of Chambre Hardman and Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, by Tony Myers FRPS

Another great night was enjoyed by members at the South Liverpool Summer syllabus night on 10 July.

Tony Myers FRPS. Presented a most interesting and informative talk on two of the pioneers of photography – Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and the region’s own Chambre Hardman.

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.
