The Making of Landscape Photographs
Charlie Waite, world renowned landscape photographer, gives an insight into his work, his passion for photography, the surrounding landscape near his Dorset home, and what goes into making an award-winning photograph. (This year, Waite received an invitation by the Royal Academy of Arts to exhibit in their Summer Exhibition.) His style is unique in that his photographs convey a spiritual quality of serenity and calm.
For admirers of artistic photography, would-be artistic photographers, or lovers of the Dorset countryside, this lecture, on a somewhat different theme from usual, is a must! Do join us on Thursday 8th November at the Memorial Centre. Coffee from 10am, lecture at 10.30. Visitors welcome (£6). For more information contact Peter Ronan on 01425 638200.
Tickets are still be on sale for our October visit.
Our Autumn visit will be to the ancient city of Oxford where a variety of ways of enjoying this “City of Spires” will be available. Our principal visit will be to the Pitt Rivers and Natural History Museums. For those who would prefer there is the alternative option of visiting the Bodleian Libraries (5-7 min stroll from our drop-off point) where there are two exhibitions available viz: Tolkien – Maker of Middle-Earth and Sappho to Suffrage: Women who Dared.
