Many thanks to Dave for giving us a visual feast with his take on photography. One of the key insights he shared was having specific projects in mind as stimulus – and Dave’s mind is an extrodinary mix of creative, artisitic and clear thinking supported by technical brilliance. Sharing some of his working practice together with dramatic and touching images made for a fascinating, informative and thoroughly enjoyable evening. We all appreciated how much work went into the presentation.

Following the formal part of the evening, Roger delighted us all with his projected talk “By Royal Command” illustrating his own spectacular photography taken in spectacular places. (The ‘royal command’ being a reference to our own Jenny King who ‘commissioned’ the talk!) Special thanks to Roger for his judging and for an informative and enjoyable evening.
