|THE PRESIDENT'S EVENING|
A social opening to our season when our President Iris Martin will organise a short presentation followed by our usual buffet so that we can re-acquaint ourselves with members we might not have seen over the summer and hopefully meet some potential new members.
|AN EVENING WITH GARY AND LOUISE |
As an introduction to our new season, we have a selection of images from two popular Rolls Royce photographers Gary Langley and Louise Walton. They have a wide range of photographic subjects so this should be an entertaining evening.
|DOUBLE VISION by Keith Brown FRPS FIPF EFIAP MPAGB APAGB & Kate Brown LRPS DPAGB|
Keith has long been in the forefront of audio visual presentation and was helped on moving into digital upon meeting (and marrying) Kate, gaining particular success with his award-winning profile of George Harrison entitled The Quiet One. They now present their unique evening of varied digital sequences up and down the country.
|FREELANCE SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY by Steve Bond|
An inside view of the world of a professional sport photographer. How things are done, how Steve works what the papers look for. His talks are always updated so will include some Ashes. Next season he is the official photographer for Somerset CC and they are playing Notts at Trent Bridge on this particular day so it's an ideal booking.
A chance for you to give a presentation of your own work should you feel so inclined. Prints or digital, just let me know beforehand so that the evening can be planned. A practical demonstration could be organised. It's up to you.
Don't forget that print titles and digital files should be e-mailed to the Competition Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org by SUNDAY 6th OCTOBER in order to qualify for entry into next week's 1st competition.

|A BIT OF A DO|
|DIGITAL MONOCHROME by Stuart Crump|

He has a regular column in Outdoor Photography and leads photographic holidays to many locations. He has published several books including Finding The Picture in conjunction with Phil Malpass from which comes tonight’s talk which Clive says will interest all who have suffered from photographers block as well as those seeking inspiration. See www.minnitt.co.uk.
This is the evening on which the accepted entries from The North and East Midlands Photographic Society Exhibition are shown in audio visual format with commentary by Ashley Franklin and is usually one of the highlights of the year. Make sure you enter some images yourself earlier in the season – usually October – so that Beeston will hopefully have a good representation.
|THE GREAT OUTDOORS by Robert Falconer|
This popular local photographer has finally gone digital but for tonight he has put together what he says is his final slideshow which contains a selection of his favourite images and all of the themes for which he has become famous including railways, aeroplanes and landscapes.

Our annual evening when we show AVs from our own members. If you are new to the art, why not give it a go. Try and keep your presentation to around 5 minutes, although there is no official limit. It's not competitive and you don't even have to put your name on it if you don't want to. Do take part to make it an enjoyable evening.
|ANNUAL 3 WAY COMPETITION between Ourselves, Rolls Royce & Derby City|
Sure to be a night when you will see some stunning images even though we generally come third! Our entry will generally be chosen from competition and NEMPF entries from earlier in the season but if you have any new images please don't be afraid to show them to us. Have a word with Jan Taylor who is our External Exhibition/Competition Secretary. More prints to choose from would be especially welcome.

|MY DIGITAL WORKFLOW by Bob Brind-Surch|
The speaker who generated the most favourable response (and the most e-mails) last season was certainly worth asking back so this year he will explore and describe what happens after he has taken a photograph and attempt to demystify what he believes to be a simple and productive process if broken down into distinct, manageable steps. Illustrated of course with Bob's great images examples of which you can see on www.naturesphotos.co.uk

|LANDSCAPE - A MEDIUM FORMAT VIEW by Dav Thomas |
Based in Sheffield close to the Peak District National Park, Dav's photography encaptures the nature of this varied landscape as well as those further away from home, including Scotland, North Yorkshire and North Wales. But often his images aren't recognisable as particular locations, as his aim is to portray the quiet solitude of the landscape - and the majesty of the light and weather. He prefers using the large format camera and will tell how and why. See www.peaklandscapes.com
Don't forget that next week is our final competition of the season when we ask you to bring along a print with no enhancements to be judged by the audience the winner being presented with the Hilda Thurman Trophy. Print titles should be handed in tonight or e-mailed to Derek and Iris by SUNDAY 13TH APRIL.

|ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING |
The most important evening of the season in many ways as it is the Committee which decides not only the expenditure of the Club but also its' future direction and it can only do this by knowing what its' members want so this is your opportunity to tell us.
