July Meeting

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Tuesday, July 13, 2010
Hi all

July Meeting - Tuesday 6 July 2010, 7pm

1. Speaker

Dennis Guichard - Fine Art Architectural Photographer

I have managed to secure a fantastic speaker for July's meeting. He is Dennis Guichard - one of the featured photographers in the FIFA Fine Art Exhibition 2010. Dennis is an architectural photographer, and has been involved with works in SA, the UK and Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Dennis will discuss his work for the FIFA Fine Art Exhibition, which is a series of 30 shots of the stadiums throughout South Africa. You will see Moses Mabhida look stunning, along with other fine art photos of the other stadiums. His work is on display at the art gallery at Suncoast Casino. I strongly recommend that you go and have a look at his work, as this is where you will see the grand detail in the full size prints. Dennis will also discuss his other work, most recent of which was in Abu Dhabi, where he was Senior Architectural Design Manager on one of the mega projects there.

Dennis has also been featured in the June/July Pix Magazine. Thats his photo on the fold out cover!

2. Outings for July

There are TWO outings this month!

-Saturday, 17 July 2010
-Between 5.30am and 6.30am
(The horses are out at 5.30am, but arrive whenever you want to. Sunrise is at 6.50am)

The Durban July is being held on 31st July, so all the trainers will be bringing their horses to Summerveld in the prceeding weeks. There is opportunity to get moody shots of the horses training, as well shots of Summerveld. Lots of beautiful trees, grassy fields and hopefully some morning mist. Breakfast somewhere afterwards.

Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk
-Point, Durban
-Saturday 24 July 2010
-3pm - 5pm

This is the third year that this photowalk is being held. The idea is to meet up and take photos for two hours, in the specified area. Submit your best photo, and you could stand a chance of being chosen as the best photo worldwide, as determined by Scott Kelby. Allan Jackson won the best photo of the Durban group last year, so the challenge is on to have another Hillcrest Camera Club member win!

Club member Andrew Roos is organising this year's photowalk. The after-walk gathering and supper will be held at Moyo.
See here for details about the walk.

3. Photo Sharing at the meeting

Sharing your photos and hearing other members' tips and advice is a huge part of growing as a photographer. Participation in this part of the meeting is very important. We had a poor show last month, so please all bring your photos! One photo per catergory.

Set Subject - June is "Step-Up. The Streets". This is an interesting topic as it provides for all kinds of interpretations.
Open catergory - In keeping with the architectural theme of the meeting, please bring your shots of architecture, or buildings, particularly if they have a fine art feel to them. Dennis has said he will comment on them.

Don't forget to stop by the Fine Art Exhibition at Suncoast and view Dennis's work! Its amazing and well worth a visit!

See you the meeting.
