Join us for a fantastic evening of stunning and inspirational imagery from our speaker, Claire Carter.

Claire’s interest in nature photography grew from a desire to record special moments to inspire her paintings and progressed to capturing the way light transforms a scene, She says it is a wonderful excuse to just “bell in places that take your breath away and that on a scene is like watching a drama unfold.

Fran Halsall to talk at North Cheshire Photographic Society, Tuesday 6th September

Fran-HalsallFran is a professional photographer, writer and tutor since 2004 and her time has been spent creating high-quality images of locations and subjects throughout the British Isles. Fran’s primary passion is documenting geological formations and natural habitats.
Light has also become an obsession and Fran has spent a good deal of time learning about it, from its behaviour in relation to camera optics, how it determines our perception of the world, and its impact on us both physically and emotionally. The variable qualities of natural light continue to inspire Fran and photography is the most wonderfully direct medium for recording her observations.

Admission £3 for non-members. 8pm, Civic Hall, off Park Lane, Poynton SK12 1RB

Timothy Allen's 'Human Planet'

Timothy Allen’s ‘Human Planet’

Timothy Allen, photographer of the BBC Human Planet series, will be appearing at Chester on October 20th.

Beginning in 2009 the BBC commissioned Timothy to work on the landmark series Human Planet. For two years he was in charge of the production’s photography at a time when the first DSLRs were beginning to adopt HD film capabilities and consequently for the first time his job included shooting film footage and multimedia content as well as the conventional photographic stills destined for use in the programme’s worldwide publicity, a best selling book and a touring photographic exhibition. The weekly blog he wrote documenting his experiences during that incredible project can be found here.
