News in Brief


The new season starts on Thursday 9th September when we have arranged a Zoom meeting and will welcome Wayne Davey CPAGB BPE1* as our speaker.

Wayne’s preferred genres of photography are landscape and aviation, although a view of his portfolio will show that he produces incredible images in many other fields too.

Coming from Norfolk, Wayne is a member of Lowestoft Camera Club and is also a member of the exclusive Beyond Group. He is very active (and competitive!) on internet photography competition sites and has spent much of the last couple of years in the top 5 of the Photocrowd leaderboard and much of this year at the No.1 position. He also runs landscape photography workshops through his website.

I hope that you will enjoy his talk, which it is hoped will be an interactive evening with questions invited throughout the presentation.
