Programme of Club and External Events

The Best of the Last with Paul Hobson @ Zoom
Sep 12 @ 7:30 pm – 9:45 pm

Best of the last, how I survived lockdown and how my photography changed with an increasing emphasis on UK wildlife.

Into the Throne Room of the Mountain Gods with George Robertson @ Zoom
Oct 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:45 pm

A challenging travel/mountaineering photography journey over three weeks, at high altitude, on the Baltoro Glacier in the Karakoram mountains of Northern Pakistan where 4 of the worlds 14 – 8000m peaks lie. The Karakoram mountains, however, are very distinctive while most of the world’s highest peaks are blanketed in snow and ice, the Karakoram is an exception. The mountains are vertical jagged outlines of granite spires glistening in the sun on slopes that are often too steep for snow to lie. The Baltoro Glacier is one of the worlds longest outside of the polar regions and our journey follows the glacier into the mountains. All of these aspects combine to make this a truly fascinating and photogenic region which has been visited by many of the world leading photographers including Vittoria Sello, Galen Rowell.

Eddie will cover a range of areas such as lighting and atmosphere, how much of any scene makes an image, options for different seasons and light conditions and more besides.
