Hi all

It’s good to see that most of you have renewed your membership for this year. Afterall, where else can you get such excellent entertainment on a Tuesday evening nowadays. There are still a few familiar faces who have yet to submit their membership forms. Remember please everyone that you need to be a paid up member to enter the monthly competitions and the first one is on 6 October. Photoentry has been open since last week and your entries must be in by midnight Tuesday 29 September. It will be interesting to see how everyone has dealt with lockdown and social distancing whilst keeping their photographic skills going.

This week we have an early session at 7-00 presented by Rebekah Nash – The Roger Lewis Foundation Course. This will be followed at 8-00 pm with the main event. This week we are privileged to have Michael McIlvaney – our very own member – presenting “Storytelling In Public Spaces: Applying Your Photography Skills To The Street”. Michael is a very skilled photographer and his work has been recognised in international competitions. This should be a very good night, so make sure that you don’t miss it.

On Saturday past, I attended the Zoom AGM for the MCPF. One particular point of note is that Midphot will be held as per past years – however, in common with most exhibitions and competitions, it will be PDI only. In the current circumstances it will not be possible to hold the usual print section. Regrettable, but understandable of course.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Best wishes

David
