NEXT MEETING – ONLINE VIA ZOOM:
Wednesday, 19th August at 8:00 PM
Masters of Street Photography
An Online presentation by Professional Photographer Stewart Wall MA, ARPS.
Looking at and reviewing the work of others can help us develop our own work and, in this talk, you will be introduced to a series of masterful photographers including Magnum Photographer Ian Berry, David Hurn and Martin Parr.
Just ten days before the London Street Photography Festival (Online 28-30 August 2020 – link here), the timing of this talk is very opportune. To read more about Stewart, follow the link to his website here
We will be sending Members the Zoom meeting link on the day of the meeting.

LAST MONTH’S MEETING:
David Keep ARPS, DPAGB, FBPE, EFIAP: Underwater Photography 1
David showed us some incredible images of a wide range of underwater nature subjects – plus an artistic human! We were amazed at the concept of sitting on the sea floor hoping that a shark would swim straight at you; and also how he managed to get two people to give up their Saturday afternoons to help him capture artistic images of an underwater lady!
Wednesday, 16th September at 8:00 PM
Members’ Quarterly Picture Sharing: Details will be confirmed nearer the date, but we will be asking for six images from each Member to be sent to a Dropbox.
Wednesday 21st October at 8pm
Fred Barrington ARPS AFIAP – Architecture, People, Patterns
Fred is a very keen photographer and an active member of Beckenham and Malden Camera Clubs and the RPS, where he takes part in many London Region activities and exhibits regularly both with the London Region and the Visual Art Group.
In his online presentation, he will show a selection of his images, mostly from the UK and London in particular, covering Architecture, People, Patterns and some Nature.
You can see more of Fred’s work on Flickr, on his website and on Instagram.
Wednesday 18th November at 8pm
Chris Hutchinson – ‘Landscape with Figures’
Details to follow, but now on the website here: https://www.hamptonhillps.org.
Wednesday 16th December at 8pm
This is usually our Annual Christmas Competition and Social Event. If the Covid-19 restrictions continue, the “Social” may be a challenge without being able to meet in the pub! We will still run the competition via Zoom.
Membership subscriptions for 2020-21 were due on 1st July for the year to 31st March 2021 and are reduced to £25 due to Covid-19 – the first quarter having been free to existing Members.
Members should have received an e-mail telling them how to renew, but if you need further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
HHPS WEBSITE – A Request
We are updating our website and we would like each Member to refresh their galleries by sending us up 10 of their best, preferably recent, images. Images should illustrate their work but not be the same as those exhibited in 2020 as these will be shown separately under Exhibitions.
OTHER ONLINE EVENTS
Over the past three months, many Clubs and Associations, including ourselves and our neighbours RTPS of course, have moved online and some of the larger ones are offering great talks and workshops which, if not free, are at very low cost. This gives us all a great opportunity to ‘attend’ events which we would not have been able to do before!
We would have to write a book to bring them all to you, from the Nikon School free sessions (details here: https://nikonschool.co.uk/ – other manufacturers are available!) to Photo London – now in October, details here https://photolondon.org/
As well as these and the many others available, you may be interested in talks from the RPS, open to RPS Members and Non-members, and many are free. Here’s the link https://rps.org/what-s-on/ (Scroll down to ‘Talks and films’) to see what’s on offer). They also have a Membership offer running – link here https://rps.org/news/bristol/
And finally, there are also events being run by other SPA clubs – see the SPA Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/
We look forward to seeing many of you online next Wednesday 19th.
Keep well & stay safe
David – Chairman
