October 4th at the TPS

October 4th at the TPS

Our guest speaker this week is Mallow’s John Hooton.  John is a highly accomplished landscape photographer with 30 years’ experience in photography and it is a great honour to him come up to talk for our club.  Last year, John achieved his MFIAP with a spectacular panel of 20 images.  For more on John Hooton visit his Website:

Also this Tuesday is One-Shot Competition time!  The theme of the competition is “Light” and will be judged by last month’s winner Shane O’Keeffe.  The theme is open to interpretation and is a great opportunity to exercise your creativity!  Entries in print form – at least 10 x 8 inches if possible and do not need to be mounted!  Looking forward to seeing your images!  Good luck!

More news:
Jim Nolan (formally of DML) of the Innovation Enterprise Network has invited TPS members to exhibit photos at the IE Network hot desk at the SDC Council offices.  The IE Network is an organisation committed to getting skilled and professional people back to work and it is a great opportunity to boost the profile of the club plus a chance to display the talent of TPS members to the public.  There is space for approximately 12 framed images and the exhibition would be on an ongoing basis with the images changed every 3 – 4 months.  If you want your images displayed, please submit one image printed and mounted (old league competition entries are ideal) and the first 12 images submitted will be chosen for the first 3 – 4 months.

Just a quick reminder about Peter Gordon’s “Wild Garden” book launch and exhibition on Thursday, October 6th in the Centre for Creative Practices on Pembroke Street at 7.00pm. Why not meet up and head into the launch as a group – make a night of it!  We can organise a time and place to meet at Tuesday’s meeting!
