Reflex Camera Club club trip to Stonehenge & the surrounding area
Each week here at TPA we meet and connect with many photography societies and camera clubs as we believe that many of them share our same passion for photography and our same wish to share photographic knowledge. We often meet with the clubs at one of our touring exhibitions where we will give a presentation on the work that is exhibited. The camera club members have the opportunity to examine the work and more often than not a discussion will ensue based on the work, the theme of the exhibition, techniques used and anything else that crops up during the tour.
In this new series of blog interviews we meet key members of photographic clubs and societies from around the country. First up, is Bristol-based Reflex Camera Club. Earlier this month, a few members of the club were joined by our Communications Manager Antony for a guided tour of our 'No Briton is and Island' exhibition that took place at Tower Wharf in Bristol.
The London 2012 Olympic games may be over, but there are plenty of Olympic-inspired photography projects around to keep the energy and excitement buzzing as it has been over the past few weeks. For example, we have just happened upon this great project organised by The Photographers Gallery to mark the London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics. The World in London is an exhibition that presents portraits of Londoners taken by British and international photographers between 2009 and 2012. London boasts one of the most diverse populations in the world and each portrait that features in the exhibition shows a person or people from one of the 204 nations that took part in the London 2012 Games, accompanied by their individual stories.
Well, the weekend is upon us again. I shall be spending mine packing and getting ready for some adventures in Berlin, camera in hand! Whatever you are up to this weekend, whether you are home or away, we hope you enjoy some downtime. If you need some inspiration for your next photography project perhaps you will find it in one of the articles we have linked to below. Just be very careful if you're attempting to vacuum pack any Japanese couples as this looks pretty dangerous to us! Happy Weekend Folks!…
In the second installment of our new Close Up series, we introduce you to TPA team member Lou Griffiths, our Exhibitions Administrator, who tells us about her creative pursuits both in and out of work.…
