Programme of Events 2020 - 2021
September 2020 1st New Season Opening Night - ONLINE EVENT As always this is a varied evening and there are no entry fees so if you’re thinking of joining WPS it’s an ideal time to Zoom in and join us and meet our members. Amongst other things there will be an overview of the coming season and a range of short presentations which should be interesting and useful. If you would like to attend please email Carol Bailey to arrange a Zoom invite to be sent to you via email. 8th Sports Illustrated - ONLINE EVENT - Roger Evans MPAGB.FBPE.EFIAP/b Roger charts his journey from early film days through to his current sporting images.

Each image shows all the technical information and he’ll provide tips and tricks along the way to help us to take better sporting images. www.splashpics.co.uk www.gettyimages.co.uk/photos/roger-evans 15th Secret Wildlife of the Forest of Dean - ONLINE EVENT - Nick Martin Nick is an amateur wildlife photographer with a passion for nature and the countryside. He sells his images, gives talks, and offers wildlife photography workshops.

This is divided into two sections - Novices and Advanced - and each entrant may submit up to three images in either monochrome, colour or a mixture of the two. Please make sure your images conform to WPS requirements as explained here. Guest Judge: Alan Lawrence ARPS 29th WPS versus Tettenhall Wood Photographic Club - ONLINE EVENT A friendly PDI battle hosted by WPS and an extremely rare event because our two clubs both meet on Tuesday evenings.

Both Dave and Angie are extremely enthusiastic about On1 Photo Raw and its vast range of creative tools and opportunities it places at the creative photographer’s disposal. This software began its life with broken promises about what it offered with poor performance and features. This is a great opportunity to see how the software has developed and what it has to offer now. Entry of images for PDI Round 2 13th Competition Evening - PDI Round 2 - ONLINE EVENT The second round of our Projected Digital Image internal competition.

November 2020 3rd Season 2019/2020 WPS Presentation Evening - ONLINE EVENT The WPS awards and presentation evening is usually held at the end of May but this year, of course, that was unable to happen. We were hoping to meet at the Albert Lawn Tennis Club but with restrictions still in-place this event will instead be staged on Zoom. There are still trophy presentations though and we are expecting this to be a great evening of celebration even though WPS are not allowed to meet in person. It is always rewarding to see success celebrated and hopefully this virtual event will still provide a great opportunity for that. 10th From Sandwell to India - ONLINE EVENT - Tal Chohan Tal has loved wildlife since he was a child and remembers his holidays to India where he first encountered animals amongst the farm life in his family’s villages. Perhaps those early experiences and his first tiger safari in 2008 are perhaps why his photographic style is as it is today. Days of travelling through highly developed landscapes, leading to pristine wilderness and finally the jewel in the crown… a wild tiger, was an experience he still remembers well. www.tcwildlifephotography.com 17th John’s Online Photo Show - ONLINE EVENT - John Hartshorne LRPS.DPAGB.BPE3* John returns to WPS having visited us many times both as an eagerly received presenter and an excellent competition Judge. He has enjoyed photography for most of his life, converting to digital about twelve years ago. He has a broad spectrum of photographic interests including infra-red, landscapes, wildlife, portraits, motor-sport and long-exposures so this will be a varied, entertaining and educational evening. www.trinity-photography-group.com/john-hartshorne-lrps-bpe3-dpagb.html 24th WPS Five-a-Side PDI Competition - ONLINE EVENT WPS members divide into teams for a friendly battle of projected images.

January 2021 5th Dare to be Different! - ONLINE EVENT - Diane Seddon ARPS.AFIAP.CPAGB.BPE3* Diane asks the questions and makes an extremely strong statement: “When did you last have a creative idea? What was it? Did it work? Does it matter if it didn’t? Shoot the unusual ~ don’t worry about what anyone else thinks ~ let’s not worry about judges ~ let’s learn to play again!” This superb talk includes hints and tips about photographic and camera techniques, but it’s much more than that - it’s about making people think more creatively about their photography. www.dseddonphoto.co.uk Entry of titles for Printed Images Round 1 12th Competition Evening - Prints Round 1 - ONLINE EVENT The first round of our Printed Photograph internal competition. This is divided into two sections - Novices and Advanced - and each entrant may submit up to two photographs in monochrome and up to two colour photographs.

His work has featured in books and magazines as well as being exhibited in places such as London, Liverpool and Manchester. Colin also offers courses in photography and workshops in locations such as the Isle of Skye, Devon, Dorset the Lake District and more. This promises to be a fascinating look at Colin’s recent experiences. www.colinjarvis.co.uk February 2021 2nd Shetland: Britain’s Northern Edge - ONLINE EVENT - Jack Perks BA (Hons) Jack says, “As a wildlife photographer, Shetland is a very rewarding location as it plays host to lots of ‘A List’ species like Otters, Puffins, Gannets and even Orcas. It has a healthy population of Eurasian Otters and, unlike their mainland cousins, they have adapted to a life at sea eating a range of fish and crabs from the rich waters around the islands. On my last trip an Otter even came out of the water to eat the crab just a few metres away from me!” www.jackperksphotography.com Entry of images for PDI Round 2 9th Competition Evening - Prints Round 2 - ONLINE EVENT The second round of our Printed Photograph internal competition.

With an insight into how she creates her photos this will undoubtedly prove to be a fascinating evening focusing on a world we do not usually experience. www.colleenslaterphotography.co.uk 23rd The Annual MCPF Portfolio - ONLINE EVENT An evening of photographs together with a recorded commentary by MCPF judges. 25th Great Barr PS versus WPS - ONLINE EVENT A friendly print and PDI battle hosted by Great Barr Photographic Society.

A long and dusty off-road trip leads to remote villages and nomadic groups within a stunning desert landscape.

A list of events will be published in the WPS members’ newsletter and also on this page.
