On Monday, January 7, members were introduced to the underwater wonderland that has been the workplace and playground of Nick and Caroline Robertson-Brown for more than 20 years. This dynamic husband and wife team of underwater photographers, photo-journalists and authors shared with members; their rich knowledge of the world’s oceans and their occupants; their impressive portfolio of images amassed during more than 5,000 dives; the challenges they face taking pictures underwater; the procedures they employ to capture award winning and commercial images; and the equipment they use. Their presentation brimmed with passion, enthusiasm and practiced professionalism and provided members with a fascinating insight into this photographic genre and a memorable addition to our season of speakers.

On Monday evening we were joined by Terry Hewitt who shared with members his thoughts on the images selected for entry to the third competition of our season, ‘Patterns and Shapes’. This departure from our familiar rotation of competition themes attracted a wide variety of inventive images, seen and manufactured. Terry’s enthusiasm and love of photography was clear to all. His gentle and humorous style, his desire to share with others his knowledge and carefully assembled thoughts on each image were refreshing.
Terry drew attention both to the qualities he admired and the various steps that could be taken to make improvements to each and every image. Members found this constructive and helpful and will no doubt lobby for his future return.
