Welcome back after the Summer Break. Hope you have had a good summer, and perhaps enjoyed a few of the outings excellently provided by our outings team as usual. And now you’re hopefully ready for an active Autumn with the club.
We’ll also have Peter Gordon telling us about the Big Day event at the Royal Marine Hotel on 7th October, where a number of internationally renowned photographers will be speaking.Exhibition Images
Tony and David still have 16 pictures from the Exhibition and will bring them to the Club at Monday's meeting for collection in the car park before the meeting. Those who are not there on the 3rd will need to make arrangements with Tony to collect them later from his house.The organisation of Audio Visuals for Club Meetings
Tony is stepping down from this role and a replacement (or two) is URGENTLY
required. Can anyone willing and able to assist speak to either Tony or Ian at the next meeting (or email email@example.com

The next distinction sitting is on 15th September in Carlow. Several club members are preparing panels for this event. If you will be submitting a panel or travelling to the event on the day please send a quick email to Matt O'Brien (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can help coordinate transport, etc..
Shoot with Me - Autumn 2018
Our Shoot with Me organiser, Helen Black, has provided the following information about this autumn’s SWM:
Shoot With Me is a project-based activity which the club puts together twice a year. The principle idea is that around 12 club members 'volunteer' to facilitate a small group of other club members (usually 4-5 people) in a chosen photographic project. These facilitators then organize the event with their individual group co-ordinating time, location etc
The ultimate aim here is to get people to socialise, have some fun and learn from each other - and it always works !!!
To bring your new found skills to fruition, everyone gets their image printed, which is then presented at the Showcase in December. A dynamic way to round off the Autumn season.
With over 100 members in our club, we can tap into a wide and diverse pool of experiences.
The success of the SWM relies on your participation. Don’t be shy – get involved and be one of the 12 volunteers - you don't have to be an expert at all. Offer your enthusiasm, your project idea and a willingness to facilitate a small group of like-minded photographers.
The project can be anything at all – macro, landscape, architecture, flowers, water movement, painting with light……the list is endless.
I’m waiting to hear from volunteers in the next couple of weeks. Please note - I can’t allocate members to Shoot With Me projects until I have the facilitators in place !!
So don’t delay - email Helen at email@example.com
with your ideas or give me a call if you wish to discuss it. I look forward to hearing from you !!
Congratulations to Colin Fitzpatrick for having his image of Deer in Phoenix Park selected for the MS Ireland 2019 Calendar.
