Monthly meeting – The Olympus OM system @ Miners and Mechanics Institute
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We are grateful to Jez Sugars, Olympus product specialist, who is making the long trip down from Southend to talk about and demonstrate the capabilities of the Olympus OM system, with lots of images to show just what it can do, together with an opportunity for members to handle and play with the latest models.



Monthly meeting – A year in review
Nov 12 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We are pleased to welcome again one of our favourite external speakers, David Chapman, who will be well known to many members. David will be looking back over the current year, talking about his projects and personal work, and possibly what lies in the future.

Monthly meeting – Ten do Ten in Ten @ Miners and Mechanics Institute
Dec 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Ten members will talk for ten minutes about ten examples of their own work. Simples!

Monthly meeting – Snapshots of Cornish maritime history @ Miners and Mechanics Institute
Jan 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Jan Pentreath was brought up in West Penwith, and despite a wide-ranging academic and governmental advisory career, has maintained a significant interest in things related to Cornwall and its coast, its wildlife and the environment. One of his enthusiasms lies in the collection and restoration of historic photographs and postcards of Cornish life, and relating them to the social history of the times, including comparison with the Newlyn and St Ives artistic communities.

Two or three of us were privileged to hear a recent talk of his, and felt strongly that we would like to invite him to entertain the club.This promises to be a fascinating talk, mixing photography, local history, art, and anecdote; in view of this should members wish to bring guests they would be very welcome.

Monthly meeting – Adventure travel photography, get it while you can! @ Miners and Mechanics Institute
Feb 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Most will know that Ben Church’s rather intermittent appearances at the club are largely as a result of his job taking him out of the country, where he leads travel expeditions, often adventurous, and often to exotic locations.

All being well, Ben will be back in Cornwall for this event when he will talk about his experience, including both the rewards and the problems of photography in such locations.
