Programme of Club and External Events

Perpetually in Motion
Feb 10 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Perpetually in Motion @ Castle Park Arts Centre

Claire Carter’s interest in nature photography grew from a desire to record special moments to inspire her paintings. From this has grown her passion to capture the way light transforms a scene and to share those fleeting and unique moments.

She also claims it is a wonderful excuse to just “be” in places that take your breath away and that standing for hours watching the effect of light on a scene is like watching a drama unfold.

During the last 20+ years her photographs have been used in a wide range of publications and her work has been acknowledged in international photography competitions. She also has had articles published in photography magazines and holds exhibitions.
