Wednesday, 21st August at 20.00 (8.00pm) upstairs at The Bell Inn Hampton – Gina Glover.
Gina Glover, whose photographs are exhibited internationally, will be giving a talk which is from her Metabolic Landscape series and lensless landscape project ‘Liminal World’. It was exhibited at Hooper’s Gallery, London in 2010 and Le Cinq Gallery in Rabastens, France in 2013.

Gina tries to find imagery to visually symbolise our own complex inner thoughts to help make sense of the world that we live in.

She is a photographic artist, educationalist and founder – director of Photofusion Photography Centre, London. Educated at Chelsea Art School and University of Westminster. She is a recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Hood Medal, the Medical Research Council’s Visions of Science Award twice and funding from the Arts Council of England three times.

Our meetings are in two parts with a break in the middle which gives us time to socialise at the bar.

Visitors would be very welcome. There is charge of £5.00 per person payable on the night for those who are not members of Hampton Hill Photographic Society.

The upstairs function room is just inside the front entrance and to the right. There is a car park to the rear and local on-street parking if it is full.

Last Month
Our talk on Polaroid and Instax cameras in July was by Anne Forest who gave an hour’s fact-filled digital presentation with further comments and explanations. She then showed a wide variety of these cameras which she has collected and a number of accessories including filters and film packs, and explained the differences to the audience. After the break the audience were invited to take photographs using the Polaroid and Instax cameras.

Next Month
Wednesday, 18th September – Speaker TBC

We are still awaiting confirmation of a Speaker. If we are unable to do so, members will be invited to present a maximum of 6 images on any subject, hopefully with a little commentary as to their selection. It could be about the composition, the reasoning behind the images or the inspiration that made them take the shot in the first place.

On Saturday afternoon, 19th October, the Surrey Photographic Association (‘SPA’) will hold its AGM at East Horsley plus the annual individual PDI and print competition see link here This is “Individual” not “Club” entry; the rules are here There are Print and PDI classes – for “Open” and “Nature” – four in total. PDIs for both print and PDI have to be submitted by two weeks in advance – by 5th October. Members must be there on the day or else any winning photos will be disqualified! It is a great way to see what “Judges” think of your images – and to see what they think of a wide variety of images!

December’s Christmas social and digital photo competition:
The competition theme is “Inspired by a Book Title”, i.e. the image title is the book title.  Each member can submit up to three digital images which have to have been taken during 2019 but must be of different books though sequels will be allowed, i.e. not different images of the same book. As usual, an outside judge will be invited to make comments on them.  He will then select the three he thinks best but leave it to our members to vote for their favourite.

HHPS Website:
We are continuing to update the website and any comments or suggestions from members on the content or look of the website would still be very welcome. For e-mail addresses of our committee members, click on the Contact tab.

Members have also suggested maybe a Sunday walk with cameras at a venue to be arranged to take a few images. Any volunteers to organise?

We are still trying to arrange a Studio Evening at a local Photographic Studio just over Hampton Court Bridge to give people an insight into this branch of photography. We are thinking of doing this in January. Most of us will probably never get to use a studio but there will be techniques which may help us all in creating more professional images. Lifts can be arranged.
