Hope you are all well. Been a busy weekend of photography for me and for those who came along to Studio Club. We had a great day, complete with suits of armour and a desperate housewives styled shoot! We look forward to sharing some images with you soon. Make sure you note your interest if you would like to come along to the next one.
First up a request from Sandy;
The program for next year is coming together now and it would be really helpful if you could let me know what you want to see in there. I am trying to cover all interests but unless you tell me what you would like to see included I won’t know and it will be missed. So it is up to you. Give me your wish lists, especially items we should cover in the workshops, and I will add as much as possible.
Another reminder of that date for your diaries: Saturday 15th March will be the annual BSCC fundraising quiz night. Its always a fun evening and raises much needed funds for the club. Its only £8.50 per ticket and includes a ploughman’s supper. At this stage I need to know how many people you have in your team.
Next up: we have been contacted by St Clare Hospice, who are putting together a 2015 calendar for their 25th anniversary next year. They are looking for 13 striking seasonal images to feature in the calendar on the theme ‘Hidden Treasures’.
What they would like is beautiful images of local landmarks/artwork/landscapes/places of interest within the catchment area served by the Hospice. Their patients come from across Harlow, Sawbridgeworth, Bishop’s Stortford, Saffron Walden, Stansted, Dunmow, Newport, Epping, Loughton, Ongar, Buckhurst Hill and all the little villages & hamlets.
They have put this out to all local photography clubs, so it would be great if stortford could be represented. They need pictures to cover all four seasons. Members can submit contributions directly by email (eleanor.scotchbrook (at) stclarehospice.org.uk) please include your own contact details. Due to production deadlines, submissions must be sent by Friday, February 21 so people must be quick!
Finally, I’m pleased to announce this weeks photo of the month; Mark Seton, Dovercourt Lighthouse. To be in with a chance simply upload your images each month to the BSCC Flickr page.
Please bring along monies on Tuesday if you owe me for anything (quiz tickets/fleeces/weekend away) Sam is giving us a talk with slides, entitled ‘Iceland adventure’. See you all there.
