Henry O'Dwyer

An Evening with Henry O’Dwyer

Henry is a good friend of Ron Pickford.  I’m afraid I don’t know much else about him.  He has agreed to come and talk to us.  I’m sure it will be an entertaining and informative evening.  Come down on Monday April 29th and find out for yourself.

 

Portrait Photographer of the Year

was a total disaster this year due to not having a judge.  There seems to have been some sort of mix up and the judge, Russell Lindsay, thought he was coming to Stevenage next Monday.  Russell and his wife, Barbie, live in Suffolk and it would have taken too long even if they had set out as soon as they realised.  Clearly, we need to ensure that our speakers and judges are reminded by email and that we have contact details for them on the night.  It doesn’t happen very often, but it is a real nuisance when it does.  I do apologise to everyone who came down to the club expecting an exciting competition.  Also to all who entered.  We had more entries than ever before.  The entries have been boxed up and we are going to try and judge them on the evening of May 13th with the Photographer of the Year Competition.  Some members asked if they could add their portrait images to this competition.  I have to say no, as it wouldn’t be fair to all those that had their sets ready for last Monday.  I would like to thank Gary for going through the programme for next year and explaining what we have to look forward to.  David made a collection of “Portrait Cakes”.  He was going to send me a picture of them, but I haven’t received anything yet.  They were very tasty if the one I had is anything to go by.

Eric Saul ARPS, EFIAP, DPAGB, APAGB

We are very sad to announce the death of local photographer, judge, speaker and friend of many of our club members, Eric Saul.  Eric has been suffering with his mobility for some years now, but has bravely battled on, visiting camera clubs with his wife, Naomi to judge images or speak about photography.  Together they have played a pivotal role in the running of the East Anglian Federation, where Eric was Treasurer for many years.  They were regular members at Shillington Camera Club and were passionate about their photography and encouraging young photographers.  We extend our condolences to his family.
