At our March meeting we welcomed guest speaker Ian Mountford. His talk entitled ‘The Long Way to Success’ walked us through his start in photography up to his achievement of commendations in such prestigious competitions as Landscape Photographer of the Year. His latest being ‘Patchwork’ which was commended in 2018. However, it’s clear his highlight so far was having his image ‘Avon View’ projected onto the National Theatre building in London.
Ian shared with us the things that have inspired him over the years and the way that his unique style of photography has developed, including an insight into the process and workflow that he uses to create such amazing images.
Seeing a local amateur photographer develop from ‘point and shoot’ photography to creating such stunning images and receiving awards from nationally recognised organisations really struck a chord with everyone on the evening.
So we would like to say a big thank you to Ian for sharing his experience with us.
And so onto our theme of the month, which was ‘Trees’.
As we had a guest speaker this month, we restricted our submissions to one image each. Never the less, we once again had a wonderful variety of interpretation on this theme. So enjoy re-visiting your images. (We did have a couple of extra images which I’ve included in the slideshow)
Our theme for April is ‘Near and Far’ and it’s a maximum of 2 images to be submitted by Saturday 30th March.
