Mike Lane FRPS ‘A Digital Lane Returns Again’

Mike is, without doubt, one the best natural history photographers in the Country. With winter images from Japan and British wildlife with hares, water voles and finally the great bustards that have been reintroduced in Wiltshire, Mike will not only amaze us with his work but explain his approach. A chance to learn from the best.

Tony Cooper ARPS ‘Black & White, IR and Composition’

Tony enjoys strolling with his camera and has a keen eye. He says when he becomes conscious of a random image he produces it on a screen or in print based on what he saw in his head. Intriguing? Having strolled through Bristol with him, my seeing eye was sharpened. An entertaining evening in prospect.
