TPC Meeting Reviews

Reviews of TPC weekly meetings prepared by Christine Ryske, and other relevant Club news will be posted on this page



On Thursday 12th October Tyndale Photography Club gave a warm welcome to Eddy Lane ARPS DPAGB EFIAP who shared his memories of two trips he and his wife, Pam, took travelling to Antarctica. He titled his talk ‘In the footsteps of Shackleton’ and their journey took them to many places that explorer Ernest Shackleton had passed through on his three expeditions to the Antarctic. Their journey started in Argentina and followed a route from The Falkland Islands down to South Georgia and eventually Antarctica. Whilst displaying the numerous images of the landscape and wild life, he gave a graphic description of the weather conditions they had to endure. The vote of thanks was given by Brian Wetton who commented that the sort of journey Eddy and Pam made wasn’t to everyone’s taste but it is lucky that folk like them will do it so that folk like us can take pleasure in seeing the results of their travels.

5th OCTOBER 2017

The club welcomed Peter Gennard MFIAP EFIAP/p to give his illustrated talk titled ‘PG Tips – My Way’. He displayed prints for us to view at our leisure but the main event was his projected digital image presentation of photographs taken between 2007 and 2009. There was wide range of subjects for us to enjoy including : Tough Guys in Wolverhampton : The Severn Valley Railway : Seals at Donna Nook : Water Sports at both Kingsbury Water Park and The National Water Sports Centre : Car Rallying : Greyhound Racing : Punks in Blackpool : the list goes on and on. The vote of thanks was given by Edwin Nuttall and everyone agreed with him that it had been a most enjoyable evening with an extremely varied range topics covered.

New members Maureen Sandford and Ian Cook were welcomed to the club by Christine Wetton.
