On Tuesday I visited Stratford Photographic Group to give my talk “British Landscapes in Colour and Mono.” I found them to be a very friendly club with some excellent photographers in their number. It’s always a slightly daunting thing to give a talk when a club has such a good reputation and the thoughts that run through my mind include; “will they enjoy my images,” “am I helping to pass on the knowledge I have gained over my years of photography”
Well it seems on this occasion I need not have worried as the next day I received this email.
As I drove home last, I thought I must send you a note of thanks, for a thoroughly entertaining and inspirational evening. Well, it seems my friends and colleagues have done the job for me! It’s only 10:00 am and already I’ve had a flood of emails saying how much they enjoyed your talk.
Here are some of the comments:-
“I don’t think I shall become a landscape photographer any time soon (already too many camper vans on the road) but what a refreshing view on photography shown by Bill last night. He seemed to confront and break all the conventions to great effect. Also what a genuinely nice guy he was.”
“Bill is an engaging speaker with a refreshing attitude to his photography.
His images were pretty good too!!”
“Completely agree that he was an excellent choice of speaker. Some stunning images, all from the UK, and within reach of all of us.”
I couldn’t have put it better myself.
So, thank you very much – from all of us at Stratford Photo Group – and I wish you and your wife a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year. I hope 2016 presents you with many more opportunities to produce beautiful photographs.
Thanks and Best Regards,
Stratford Photo Group
