TALK | Gareth Davies on Panoramic Photography

EHHPS is delighted to welcome Gareth Davies whose talk will very briefly cover the history of panoramic photography, before describing the different types of panoramas. Gareth will concentrate on ‘slit-scan’ images, including 360 degree images made with rotating cameras, photofinish images, more usually seen in horse racing or athletics to determine finishing positions, and streak images, normally only used for scientific purposes, as well as slit-scan videos. There will be a chance to see and handle several specialist panoramic cameras, including a Swiss precision rotating camera and a photofinish one made out of Lego, but the talk will also show how to make these types of images without specialist equipment.

 

GARETH DAVIES

Gareth specialises in panoramic imaging, an interest first started in 1995 using a Russian swing-lens camera which continued by building a rotating 360degree camera in 1999. He has built two further cameras for his experiments with photofinish photography, but now mainly uses commercially built film cameras or digital techniques. He is one of only two UK members of the International Association of Panoramic Photographers.

TALK | Maythem Ridha "Shooting in the Middle East and North Africa"

Maythem Ridha has lived, travelled and worked in countries as diverse as Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, the Gulf States and Morocco.

In this talk, Maythem describes how he has shot in different parts of the Middle East and North Africa inspired by the wonderfully textured locations, interesting characters and stunning light. Presenting his photographs, he will be discussing the methods he uses to shoot travel, street and environmental portraits in, at times, hostile environments. This visually informative and entertaining talk coincides with the launch of his new photobook Beyond Moments.

MAYTHEM RIDHA spent his childhood in Iraq before moving to the UK. He has over 20 years experience creating award-winning film and photography projects. Graduating from the University of Westminster with a B.A Hons in Photography, his main focus is travel, portrait and street photography. His work has been exhibited in several one-man shows and joint exhibitions for projects such as Al-Intihar, Interface and his more recent My Camera in Exile collection. Recipient of Al-Hambra Award for Excellence in the Arts, Maythem works with a diverse range of international clients as well as leading workshops and master-classes in photography and filmmaking. In 2013 The Iraqi Ministry of Culture held an exhibition of his work at the Iraqi Cultural Centre UK, which resulted in the development of a photographic book, Beyond Moments, a journey through Morocco, published in 2016.

Millennium Competition : Projected and Printed Images

The Club is the Judge...

Over the course of the evening, all of the print and projected images which have scored 20's in the Club competitions throughout the year are shown.   The images are then scored by everyone present to elicit an overall winning print and an overall winning projected image.

There is already a record of projected images scoring 20 so these images will already exist on file.   However, prints scoring 20 will need to be brought in on the night - no later than 1945 please, so that we have time to display them.

Come and join in this celebration of a year of fabulous photography!

Annual Exhibition of Printed and Projected Images

This is the final competition of the EHHPS year and is completely open (i.e. there is no set subject).   The evening will consist of both printed and projected images and you may submit up to three images in each section.    It is your choice as to what images you enter so it can be work you have already entered throughout the year, or entirely new work.  It could be an image you are  particularly pleased with, or an image that you have revisited - perhaps making alterations suggested by a judge in a previous competition.

And, of course, there are trophies!

Images & Music

Bring a set of images that is inspired by music.  There are 3 themes to enter and you can enter as many photos in any of the themes you like...

Theme 1   Take a Photo which is an alternative Album Cover for a Music Album. Whether Pop, Rock, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Country or Blues, albums often have dull, lacklustre covers and and I'm sure we could do better.  We'd like you to take a photo which illustrates the Album title. It's your own interpretation so you can be as creative, literal or humorous as you like.

Theme 2   Take a Photo which illustrates a Song Title, from  'Stairway to Heaven'  to  'My baby just cares for me'  there's a song title out there asking for a Photo.

Theme 3   An image which is an illustrates a line or two of song lyric e.g. In Penny Lane 'There is a barber showing photographs' 

A few notes that might help... 

  • There's no outside judge so no stress. You can reveal the Album, Song or Lyric you've interpreted or ask club members to guess on the night.
  • We're looking for your imagination, your interpretation and your creativity rather than technically perfect photos.
  •  You could delve into your snow photos and enter a photo of a snowy Ealing common as The Beatles - White Album but we'd prefer new photos taken especially for this fun evening.
  • As this is not a real competition you're allowed to enter any of your music themed photos into subsequent monthly competitions.

TALK | FEDERICO VERONESI | Light and dust

Images and stories from the wilds of East Africa

Federico will share his most memorable encounters with charismatic wild animals and stories from his life in the East African savannah as a photographer and guide for photographic safaris. He will take the participants to his favourite places in East Africa to meet individual elephants, cheetahs, leopards and many others that he followed through the years to reveal some the most intimate moments in their lives.

Federico Veronesi is an award-winning wildlife photographer who originally hails from Italy but moved to Kenya in his twenties in order to follow his passion for wildlife. In 2007 he moved full time to the Maasai Mara to immerse himself completely and since then has spent many years photographing wildlife in the bush. His much-coveted prints are now sold all over the world and his images are regularly used by the BBC in their books to accompany their well-loved nature documentaries. He also now leads many photographic tours throughout Kenya and Tanzania. His new book “Light & Dust” is out now and he is giving a series of talks about his wildlife photography to promote it. He will bring copies of the book on the night to sign for anyone who would like to purchase a copy.
