2014-2015 Season Programme Launched!

Tuesday 8th July 2014

bhcc-programme-2014-2015Dear All

2014-2015 is going to be another fantastic season at the Brighton & Hove Camera Club.

We have a great and varied line up of great photographers coming to our club. We have put together a line up second to none :-

This year we will be privileged to host some brilliant Political documentary photography with the great Tom Stoddart . Tom had access to Tony Blair’s election campaign and rise to power – and ironically then worked as war photographer in Iraq. We will also see Jim Mortram ‘s social and documentary photography and that of Shaista Chishty.

We will then be looking at the work of Andy Cotterill as a Music and Celebrity photographer . Later on this theme we will see Jill Furmanovsky’s captivating images – And related to this we will then be treated to looking at Fashion photography with Vanity Fair and Vogue magazines – the original works of Jason Bell and then Mike Trow.

For wildlife photographers we have one of the most brilliant wildlife photographers ever coming to the club – Des Ong .

On Landscapes we have the work of Paul Foley and the unmissable Simon Norfolk with his unbelievable images . Simon’s work is a seminal record of the landscapes and peoples of many modern day war torn countries and landscapes.

Marc Aspland will then be showing what it takes to be a Times Sports photographer and we will see some iconic images from his experiences.

Other great photographers we have coming include Viveca Koh and Andrew Davidson.

Also we have Luke Dodd, the Director of the Newsroom and archivist at the Guardian coming to talk to us about Jane Bown – a photographer who worked for The Observer newspaper since 1949.

Apart from this line up we will be having many other talks with technical evenings showcases of our clubs works and competitions which are always highly entertaining.

As last year we also have a range of very useful and educational masterclasses covering everything from gaining distinctions to setting up a photography business . This year we will also have practical workshops “in the field”.

I have attached the amazing program put together by Jerry Webb. This details all the evenings, contact details masterclasses etc. There are also website addresses for you to see whats coming up. Keep this safe . In around 3 weeks you will be receiving a paper copy and enrolment forms and as last year we have limited places . So when you receive your membership pack do please reply and remit promptly .

We have a great year ahead !
