    We are currently hosting an exhibition of images from the people who attended the recent Introduction to Photography Course.

    The next Introduction to Photography Course will begin on January 26th 2022 and can be booked here.  It would make a great Christmas present for someone!

    TonightTonight we are joined by Martina Regan with a presentation on Equine Photography. Martina is a well-known specialist in this genre. Her website is www.theequinephotographer.ie where you can find examples of her wonderful images.

    Congratulations – to Liz Roulston and David Larkin who were both awarded the LIPF distinction last Saturday. We are pleased that both have shared their panels with us tonight.

    And to our member Alphonsus McCarron who shared his AIPF panel – with which he was also recently awarded the ARPS distinction.

    FIAP Photo Academy – The Power of Photography for Humanity by REZA on Sunday 28th November at 2pm. Reza is a photographer, philanthropist, idealist and humanist. He is well known for his books and exhibitions of his images from around the world.

    Registration is essential for this presentation at https://forms.gle/ADH8BTwZTfz1YhKf7

    Awards Presentation Ceremony – We had planned to host an Awards Presentation Ceremony with a social aspect on Saturday 4th December. However, the Council has taken the difficult decision to postpone this until the new year. This is due to the current Covid situation and the advice that we all review our social contacts at this time. I understand that this will be disappointing for many, as it is for me. However, Council feels that this is the responsible course of action to take. We will re-schedule for early in 2022, when the situation allows us to host the Awards Presentation Ceremony.
