Crikey, what a time eh?
Certainly not the best time to be a people person, or to be a professional in a creative field such as photography.
Still, there may finally be a light at the end of the tunnel, and we’re easing back into a ‘new’ normal slowly.
Upcoming talks etc.
I had been scheduled to do a presentation for the Royal Photographic Society next month, with my popular talk on ‘Getting out of your comfort zone’, but obviously due to the Covid-19 pandemic all physical meetings have been put on hold, but we’re going to do this one online instead via the increasingly popular Zoom platform, which has proven quite successful with other recent RPS talks.
That will be on Sunday August 9th at 10:30 am, and details will be circulated to RPS members via the usual channels soon.
It’s always nice when a student really goes ‘all-in’ to take on board the topics we’re working on and follows up on my advice really pro-actively. From a teaching point of view that’s the best reward..
Phil’s just completed my ‘Masterclass’ programme, and has become an outstanding photographer over the past 12 months. He’s just achieved a distinction from the RPS and just told me he’s ‘ready for round two’.. i.e. he wants to be the first person to re-enrol for another year of mentoring and I’ve had an invitation to ‘pull no punches’ this time round…
Crikey, there’s a challenge then!
I’m looking forward to meeting the good folks at the newly formed Letcombe Regis Camera Club this coming thursday (7th June), where I’ll be presenting my recent talk on getting out of your comfort zone and developing confidence in your own photography.
