Tonight, we welcomed one of our ‘own’… Martin Reece MBE ARPS and former Society President (2001-2, 2005-7, 2010-12, 2015-16)…
Martin was showing a selection of his award winning imagery from over the years, beginning with his wildlife images, and progressing through, travel, transport, architecture, portaits (Venice Carnivale) and onto his more recent travels to Iceland and Basel (Switzerland).
Martin has been experimenting with a new genre to ‘add’ to his own tool-box, so enhancing his already impecable skills, and tonight, he showed the Society… his Infrared imagery, proving, you CAN teach old dogs new tricks… lol.
Martin, has given the ‘Craft’ of Photography, a lot of time over the years, from his involvement in the Royal Photographic Society, where he has progressed from ‘ordinary’ member, to being awarded his Distinction Panels by the RPS, making him one of the Country’s top photographers… This can also be said in regards to his involvement at ‘Grass-root’ levels in our own Society (SLPS), encouraging new and present members, to progress their own photographic skills, to further enhance their images to another and higher level…
I would encourage members and visitors alike, to study Martin’s attached imagery, as although I could write about it in eloquent terms… His images speak for themselves as to the quality and scope of Martin’s skill set.
After the break, Martin showed an Audio-Visual Presentation which included many new unseen images of his latest travels to Switzerland and Venice…
At the end of Martin’s superb showing… Barbara Green gave the final address of thanks, and I thought it a very moving and poignant account of how she bought her first camera… ventured to find a local camera club, and the first person she met in that club, happened to be Martin, who helped and guided her through the ‘craft’, to the photographer she is now… So good to hear, and a great, member generated night…
