Ruislip Meetings 16 November & 14 December

Dear All,

16th November Meeting
7:00PM start as usual, 29 Sharps Lane, Ruislip, HA4 7JG

Our November meeting is on 16TH NOVEMBER and not our usual second Tuesday of the month. It’s an important meeting as we will be selecting images for our Urban Wilderness project – which hopefully will culminate in a submission for a potential Flip piece. So I’ll very much look forward to seeing you on 16th with a box a photos tucked under your arm!

14th December Meeting
7:00PM start, 29 Sharps Lane, HA4 7JG

Do remember that we’ve got a guest speaker – Roy Hammans – you can learn more about Roy here and here and here and here’s pen profile he prepared for us:

“I’ve been involved with photography for over 45 years – both as an ardent ‘amateur’ and as a professional. My involvement has taken many and varied forms.
In the 1970s, somewhat disillusioned after leaving photographic college, I did little personal work until I stumbled across Creative Camera magazine in 1974. This was a kind of epiphany and led to an intense involvement with the medium that remains to this day.

In the 1980s, I was a founder member of The Cambridge Darkroom gallery and ran educational workshops there for many years, as well as being involved in the exhibition programme and general running of the facilities. During this period, I also received an Eastern Arts photographic bursary towards an exhibition of my personal work and served as a member of the Eastern Arts Photography Panel.
During the 1990s I acted as printer for the Edwin Smith archive, producing prints for exhibition and publication, but did little personal work.

In all of these periods, I was also working full-time as a professional photographer, running in-house facilities at the University of Cambridge and later in private industry.

After a break of several years from active engagement in practical photography, I returned to the fold just after the advent of digital imaging at the start of the last decade and rapidly adopted this as my technique of choice. This stood me in good stead for the setting up of my own small business following early retirement in 2005, when I also decided to incorporate a fully-equipped darkroom into my new premises and return to traditional methods in parallel with digital.

My personal work is largely centred on landscape, both natural and man-made, and I have recently been exploring hybrid processing techniques, printing conventionally from ‘digital’ negatives. More about me can be found on my website at www.weepingash.co.uk, launched in 2001.”

I’m very keen that we get a good turn out so members of other satellite groups are most welcome (please do spread the word) and if you have any friends or family who would be interested – they are very welcome too.

Hope that you are well.
With best regards,
Robert
