Aleks Gjika
Battle Newent/Stroud
Mon 31st Jan
** £5 Special Event **
Personally I find it a bit difficult to make the ’self teaching’ claim when I have read so many photography books, magazines, have attended numerous lectures by great photographers, have participated in countless competitions locally, nationally and internationally and received feedback through these events for over 10 years.
Scott Latham
Conservation Now, Gone Or Recovery
Mon 7th Feb
** £5 Special Event **
Paying particular attention to the conservation issues, but also considering the importance of good fieldcraft and observation on your own patch.

During the talk I touch on my editing workflow, an area of photography often discussed and explored in magazines and on the web. However despite all that people still find photoshop a mystery at times

Abandoned Architecture

In 2014 I began shooting my first abandoned building series ’Decadence’, and six years on I have now built up a large portfolio taken in some of the most striking locations in Europe and beyond.
My primary focus is capturing rich colour palettes and straight lines in the camera, then utilising modern post-processing techniques to develop each photograph

The Magic Of Monochrome
Mon 28th Mar
** £5 Special Event **
I firmly believe it is important to give back something that has given me so much enjoyment over the years.
Nothing is more thrilling than to see a beginner proudly displaying their first images, no less thrilling than seeing an image develop from nothing before your eyes in the days of chemicals!
