Club night summary – 30th May

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.


Clear your Gear

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.

Extra Summer Portrait Social Added

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.
