Happy New Year everyone!  At the quiz night I mentioned that our second meeting of the new year was entitled, “15 minutes of fame”.  It’s an opportunity to show us some of your images (or videos), explain the inspiration behind them and perhaps get a bit of feedback from your fellow members.  Should be a good night!  If you have any prints or files you would like to share then could you please bring them next Monday (5th).  Many thanks.

ps:  or you could email files to me at the this email address but please remember to resize your images as you would for any of our competitions.  Ta.

Tea Rota 2014-15

The initial rota has been based on last season’s membership list but this may be revised when the membership list for the coming year is finalised. It would help me manage the process if you could let me know if you are not intending to return to the Club for the new season. We hope, of course, that such thoughts are furthermost from your mind. For any revised list I will ensure that new members are again paired up with more experienced members so that they can be guided through the process.

If you are unable to make it to the club on your appointed night I would ask that you arrange for someone else to take over your duties for that night, so that we are not placed in the difficult situation of trying to find a volunteer at late notice. If you need to rearrange your allotted night and require contact details for other members, I will be able to provide you with the required information.

A huge variety of topics will be discussed, from Matt Doggett’s extraodinary experiences in an underwater world to Roy Mangersnes’ stunning Svalbard encounters.

There will be lunchtime workshops from Niall Benvie, Mark Hamblin and Terry Whittaker on subjects ranging from remote photography and camera traps to macro photography and creating composites and “old prints” in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Trade stands will again be available throughout the weekend and this year we’re joined by market leaders, Canon and Epson; photographic retailer, JRS Photo Hardware; outdoor specialist, Mountain Leisure; photo tour operators Ron McCombe Wildlife Photography and Northshots; plus the John Muir Trust and Scotland Outdoors Magazine.

The SNPF photo competition also returns, with a session in Northshots’ osprey hide up for grabs on each day. This specially built hide offers a unique opportunity to photograph one of Scotland’s most charismatic raptors on natural perches in front of a clean background, with both feeding and flight shots possible. The overall winning image from each day will also be displayed on the main auditorium screen. Competition entries close on 1 September so do make sure you have your tickets and send us your images if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning.

It all promises to be a great weekend of inspiring presentations and stunning images from some of the best photographers at work today, and we hope your members may be able to join us this year.
