Guest Speaker – Dafydd Walters (The Falkland Islands)
Wonderful talk by committee member Dafydd Walkers this evening as he was telling us about his time on the Falkland Islands and the fantastic wildlife there. Such an informative evening not only about his photography but also life on the island and his experiences at the other end of the world. Thank you!
Brilliant night looking through some of the entries into this years Grampian Eye and understanding how images are scored. Great to get other judges opinions to and see how point of view can differ person to person.
📸 Next week being your camera!📸
Remember to charge your camera battery and also a memory card and a lens suitable for portraits.
We will learn about lighting, posing and portraiture.
So here we are getting ready for the new 23/24 season where we have new and exciting things to offer. The committee have spent many hours during the summer break putting together a very exciting and varied programme. Why not come and join us every Tuesday at Moray College from 7 – 9 pm.
We look forward to welcoming old and of course, new members to one of the largest camera club/photography groups in Scotland.
2 weeks ago our President attended the The Societies’ of Photographers Photographic Convention held in London. It is the largest gathering of its kind held across Europe.
Lenny had been invited to judge and hold lectures throughout the weeks events. On the Awards night which is a black tie dinner with about 500 guest the Societies’ will sometimes award their top award, this is not a given and in the last 15 years only 5 photographers have been awarded this award.
As the CEO of the Society stood u[p and started speaking apparently you could have heard a pin drop.
He started by saying “Our very special award goes to someone who has inspired and guided over 500 photographers through their qualifications, He has judged over 700 qualification panels, Has single headedly judged over 40.000 images in the monthly comps, He has judged and lectured at the last 10 conventions, he has helped guide and inspire more photographers than anyone else within the societies in the last 20 years.
This year we are awarding our top and most prestigious award and the 6th Grand Master in the UK to……… Lenny Smith”
Everyone at SPG would like to congratulate Lenny for this well earned award. The guidance and knowledge past down by Lenny has helped many of our members become much better photographers and as one of the founding members of SPG we are very lucky to have him within our club.
