Couple of images from the session with model Emily Anderson earlier in May at Chorelywood House.
This week we had a talk entitled ‘Masterclass’ with Jon Gray.
Jon is a professional life style, fashion and advertising photographer with over 40 years experience. His presentation was to give us a masterclass in his style of photography.
During the evening we were treated to many excellent Images from Jon’s wide ranging portfolio, which covered advertising materials such as beer and fizzy drinks to high end perfumes and jewellery. In addition his studio work with celebrities and other models.
During the evening Jon shared many tips and techniques he uses in his varied commissions, to produce top level commercial photography.
Overall a very Interesting Inspiring evening and another very good presentation we have had in this season’s programme.
In a change of programme, the Members Q&A session scheduled for June 13th has been replaced with a bring and buy sale…Clear your Gear!
Bring your old photo gear, books, mags etc to either sell or exchange with other members – with proceeds ideally donated to the club coffers.
Nothing to sell, no worries, perhaps bring a piece of unusual photo gear to talk about or even get advice on.
Due to popular demand Ant will be running a second portrait social session with popular model Elle Blunt on Saturday 6th July. This will follow the same format as the first session on 8th June, shooting first at the Croxley Orchard then moving on to a second location by the River Chess.

The clubs AGM was held, a necessary annual formal requirement in the running of the club.
This year we also combined the event with the AGM, drinks and nibbles and voting for the members choice of best highest scoring PDI Image of the season.
During the AGM section, all of the existing committee team had agreed to continue with the good work produced this season and were unanimously nominated by the members. This is a tremendous result for the club, to have this continuity of talented Committee members continue in these roles.
A lot of good suggestions were made during the AOB section, all of which will be reviewed and actioned where relevant.
Thank you to all the members that were able to attend last night, giving your valuable support.
We look forward to further progressing as a club into the new season with many exciting and diverse photography events planned.
Our well attended talk this week ( members and guests)was with Andrew Scriven who gave an excellent presentation entitled ‘ Mindfulness and photography’. His talk covered his great photography achievements including being a Sony ambassador and being awarded Digital photography Wildlife photograph of the year. He also Introduced his Interest in Meditation and experimental photography and the Importance of music as a factor, which helped enable him to get into a creative zone with his photography.
Overall a very enjoyable presentation helped by Andrews delivering style. Definitely the most unique talk this year and a first for the Croxley Camera Club to participate in ‘Meditation’ during a club evening.
