Message from our new President - Susan Roberts

Thank you to all who attended tonight's AGM and for sharing thoughts and ideas for the future. I'm looking forward to continuing the positive work of the outgoing committee along with Martin McKeown, Janey Cringean, James Hutcheon, Jim Flynn, Ken Anderson, William Stuart, Ruta Nicol, Andrew Lambie, Nils Härtel and Steve McHarg who form the committee for the 2016/17 season.

Many thanks also for the hard work and commitment of the outgoing committee members - Murray Carle, Fraser Jarvis, Iain Glen, and Ana Martins-Taylor - during their terms of office.

This moment can't go by either without appreciating Carol McLean's kind offer to relieve us of much angst over the tea rota :-). Thank you Carol.

Now that the serious business of the club has been addressed we can all look forward to a great summer syllabus. Check out the club's Summer Syllabus page on Facebook.

Isle of May Outing

Sunday 19th June 12:15pm sailing of the May Princess. £25pp. Expected to be onboard/on island around 5 hours. Members are requested to book directly with the pleasure cruise company and inform Martin McKeown that they are joining our group. This is not a trip that the club is organising, purely coordinating interested members. Members must book and pay for the sailing themselves, contact details on our facebook event and recent email. Transport will be via members carpooling.

LCC Tee-shirts and caps

Billy Currie - "Is Getting It Right Enough?"

Born in a small mining village in Ayrshire, Billy later relocated to Central Scotland to pursue a career in IT and currently lives in Stirlingshire with his wife and son.

Having had an interest in landscape photography for some time it was the DSLR age that turned his interest into an obsession, his computing background combined with digital technology has resulted in far less restrictions and much more creative freedom for him as a photographer.

Already having an extensive knowledge of computers, photography and his camera, he completed an advanced Photoshop course a couple of years ago and has continued his education of this vast product ever since as he believes these skills are crucial to a digital photographer.

To date, many of his images have proven popular not just in Scotland but also in many other countries around the world. He has had success as both winner and finalist in various national and international photography competitions. One of the most recent being the overall winner of the 2014 EISA International Photography Competition.

Paul Hampton - "Commercial Photography"

Paul was born in Glasgow in, well, let's just say it was a while ago.

Even as a kid, he always had a fascination with photography, and was always the one who wanted to take all the photos on family holidays.

When he was 17, he bought his first camera, an Olympus Trip, and he photographed anything and everything around him, but it never occurred to him until he was in his mid-twenties, that he could make a career out of making photographs.

After studying at college for 4 years, he left with his diploma, a folio, a couple of clients and an overdraft. Within 4 months, he had his own studio, a couple of new clients and a bigger overdraft! That was 25 years ago.

Everything has changed; film is gone (almost!), digital is here, the business has gone from just him, to12 plus him and now back to just him again.

He now works from home in a purpose built studio just a few miles south west of Glasgow, and he doesn't miss the commute one bit. The one thing that has remained constant is his love of making pictures.

Here's a link to his website: www.paulhampton.co.uk . He hopes you like what you see, and if you do, then please let him know. You'll make his day.
