Guest Speaker - Graham Curry

This Friday 3rd February 2017 we have a change in the club program. Rather than view the images from the London Salon we have our guest speaker Graham Curry to entertain us. Graham was due to give a talk entitled "Hidden Snowdonia" in November but he had to cancel. Happily he's back on Friday with a more comprehensive lecture featuring all of his work including Snowdonia.

If you wish to see Graham's photography then we meet at Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane, West Kirby with the doors opening at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10pm finish. Non members are welcome paying only £2 on the door.

You can keep up to date with our program of speakers and events through our Hoylake Photographic Society website or our Facebook page.

Pixel Painted Art - Adrian McGarry ARPS

This Friday 27th January, Hoylake Photographic Society welcomes Adrian McGarry ARPS to give a presentation of his work entitled, "Pixel Painted Art".

The evening is also the hand-in for the "Nature" competition.

To see Adrian McGarry's photography visit Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane, West Kirby. The doors open at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10pm finish. Non members are welcome paying only £2 on the door.

People / Portrait Competition Results

One of the most rewarding aspects of photography is photographing people and Friday 13th January 2017 saw the judging of our "People / Portrait" competition judged by our guest Robert Millin DPAGB, EFIAP/s, EPSA, BPE5*.

The monthly competition was split into "Print" and "Digital Projected Images" sections with the "Print" section split into "Colour" and "Mono" sub sections. Members competed in all sections on an equal basis regardless of their skill and experience.

Print

In the "Colour" print sub section, Brian Magor gained 1st place with a composite image "Shopkeeper" using his wife Diana as his model, whilst Paul Anderson came both 2nd and 3rd with two images from his expansive trip to the Far East, "Our Food Stall" and "Brothers in Alms". Well done to both.

In the "Mono" print sub section, Barry Quatermass gained 1st place with a gritty portrait of "Smoking Joe". Anthony Clarke came 2nd with "Concentrating On The Road Ahead" while Noel George came 3rd with "Waiting For The Parade". Congratulations.
