Good luck to those club members going for distinctions at today’s IPF sitting.

This coming Monday we have club members Kevin Grace, Liam Haines & John Coveney talking about their Photography Processes. Every photographer has their own unique process. Three OffShoot photographers are going to share theirs. Liam Haines will cover street/travel photography, John Coveney, wildlife, and Kevin Grace will cover landscape. They will talk about their typical process for planning a shoot, the shoot itself and the post-processing and will speak about the lessons they have learned over the years. So come along and pick their brains!

It’s also the hand-in for the next competition, so if you’ve entered and have asked Steve to print your picture, don’t forget to turn up and pay for your entry.
