“Woodland Ways”

Stepping into an English woodland enables one to enter a magical world that delights the senses and lifts the spirit. Paul visits woodlands throughout the year, each season having its very own characteristics. From the sights and smell of a bluebell wood in springtime to the honey dripped glory that is autumn. Paul’s talk centre’s around some of his favourite woodland locations including Burnham Beeches, Savernake Forest and various locations in the Lake District. The talk is fully illustrated with digitally projected images and prints made throughout the four seasons.

Paul has had numerous exhibitions in London and the South East and has had articles and images published in many photographic magazines. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and currently serves on the Fine Art Distinctions Panel, a member of the prestigious Arena group and a founder member of The Landscape Collective UK (LCUK). Paul is also a well respected photographic judge and lecturer.

Paul has also been successful in the prestigious Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, winning the Sunday Times Choice Award in 2013 and being the Urban Category winner in 2015.

“Landscape Photography and Emotion”

Landscape photography and emotion go hand in hand.

When Astrid started out in photography years ago, she did not think much about what she felt when seeing something she wanted to photograph: she just picked up the camera and pressed the shutter button to capture what she saw.

In 2010, she held her first exhibition, jointly with fellow landscape photographer Huw Alban. The strongest memory she has of that event is of a visitor, who told her that she was going through difficult times with her family. But looking at her photographs made her feel much better, they conveyed a sense of harmony, beauty and calm, she said. She returned twice over the following two weeks, each time silently taking in the work.
Astrid realised then that being able to convey an emotion with her photographs was very important to her. So she started to try and be more aware of what she felt when exploring a scene, and to determine what influence her state of mind had on the resulting photograph. Over time, this process has helped her to change the way she makes her photographs, and, hopefully, to produce photographs that convey feelings and thoughts and thus evoke an emotional response in the viewer.

Astrid is a landscape photographer based in Surrey. Since 2010, she has regularly exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in the UK and in Germany. In 2013, she was appointed Head Judge of a corporate photography competition for a multinational client, headquartered in Beijing. Her first book “The Elmbridge Hundred – A Visual Journey” was published in 2014 and she is currently working on a new book project. Her photographs have been published in the UK and Europe, and sold in the UK, Europe and US. She teaches photography at the Riverhouse Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey and is a contributor to Landscapes by Women.

In this lecture, she will explain how she tries to capture her emotions of the moment in a photograph. She will be showing a selection of her images to illustrate the various techniques that she has found helpful.

The lecture, which will begin with a short introduction of herself and how she got into photography, Astrid will then take you on a light-hearted journey through her creative process, which should appeal to all levels of photographers, irrespective of their preference of subject matter.

Speaker Evening: Caroline Fraser ARPS @ Cowdray Hall
Nov 14 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Speaker Evening: Caroline Fraser ARPS @ Cowdray Hall | Easebourne | United Kingdom

“Abstracting The Landscape”

Caroline’s interpretation of the Landscape is very individual so this talk will be about abstract landscape photography, and her forays into making books. The talk will also encompass the history of abstract landscape photography referencing other photographers.

Photography is Caroline’s passion, and is a means to express her love for nature and the peace that she finds when exploring wild places .

Using her photography as a means to express the fragility and transience of life, she prefers the intimate landscape to the bigger picture. Her favoured locations include the highlands of Scotland, Iceland and the beach at Camber Sands close to her studio at the ‘The School Creative Centre’ in Rye. She uses multiple exposure and intentional camera movement alongside traditional techniques as a means of self expression.

In 2010 she achieved the ARPS (Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society) with impressionistic images of sand and water from the Hebrides.

In 2011 she gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Photography at Central St Martin’s, University of the Arts, London. During this period she worked on the series ‘Springtime in Suburbia’, exploring man’s desire for law and order over nature’s tendency towards chaos in the suburban environment.

She has published a number of books and poems through her own publishing house;  Hawkwood Press. She also has her own website which can be viewed at  http://www.carolinefraser.org

“The Kruger National Park (Summer in December)”

A detailed look at the animals and birds of the park as the wet season commences.

“Summer in December” is a trip around the Kruger National Park in South Africa with me and my wife, Carol. It is a magical time of the year for the park and its inhabitants. The long dry season comes to an end, sometimes with a bang and floods, sometimes with a gentle soaking rain which can last for days. The daytime temperature rises quickly when the clouds clear and the animals seek shade in the heat of the afternoon. We have travelled frequently to Southern Africa, each time gaining insight to the world of the wildlife and expertise in the photography of the animals and birds we encounter.

Richard Earney FRPS

“Time”

In the last few years Richard has come to realise that a lot of his work is concerned with time; not just the shutter speed when taking a photo, but time within the landscape and what affect time can have on images. In his talk he will explore how this has changed his photography, moving away from the ‘big view’ toward more intimate and abstract representations of the landscape and how it led to gaining his Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society.

Richard has been taking photographs since he was 11 mostly of landscape and nature. In the last ten years he has increasingly taken a more abstract path. Eventually this led to his series Warped Topographies which gained him a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2017. He has been featured in several articles and exhibited in London and around the country. Richard is a designer and photographer who lives and works in London.
