On Thursday 28 April Mallow Camera Club hosted a talk by renowned Scottish photographer Roy Robertson who was on a short lecture tour of Ireland. Roy, who is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, showed some of his landscape and dance photographs and talked about his photographic technique. Roy works almost exclusively in black and white, using Ilford XP2 film, from which he makes his own prints in the darkroom. The audience included camera club members from various clubs in the region as well as an excellent turnout from local members. A cup of tea rounded off an excellent night.
Roy presents a signed copy of one of his landscape photographs to John Hogan and Bríd Coakley for the Mallow Camera Club collection.
