On Monday evening a large, attendant audience was entertained and educated by the local, landscape photographer, Lee Metcalfe. Lee sets very high, personal standards for the passionate way in which he searches out and records promising viewpoints, chases early morning and evening light, waits patiently for that light to cast a magic spell over the landscape and finally, records the event on film, in a large format, panoramic camera.
His professionalism, tenacity and unwillingness to settle for second best was reflected both in his highly informative presentation, which was thoughtfully constructed, the many high quality images on show and the insights into both his camera craft and his photographic forays into wild places and wilder weather.
Our society is fortunate that there is a rich pool of talented, professional photographers in Lancaster willing to direct time, energy and experience to presentations that enthuse and improve the knowledge and craft of our society members and we thank Lee, Nick and Jono for their contributions to our 2017/18 season. www.leemetcalfelandscapephotography.com
