Cork Camera Group proudly presents, an evening with renowned photographers Rod Wheelans FIPF MFIAP FRPS & Anne Greiner MPAGB.
This is their only talk in the SACC Region and is not to be missed!
Rod & Anne’s talks are well known for being hugely entertaining & inspiring!
Anne is a very active member of Dumfries Camera Club and her work has contributed significantly to their wide ranging success in national and inter-club competitions. She is one of only two people who have achieved the Credit, Distinction and Master Award of the PAGB. Anne is a PAGB listed judge. She has judged many international exhibitions but never a club competition!
Rod joined the Dumfries Club in 1983 and has twice served as their president. He has been a member of the SPF Executive for more than 25 years and has been SPF president. He joined the PAGB Executive in 1990 and served as president 2005-2007. He has organised and chaired the PAGB Inter-Club Print Championship since its inception in 1997 and the PAGB GB Cup since its inception in 2008 but he considers his most important contribution to be the PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit. Rod prepared the first draft of these awards, defining a structure remains little changed to this day. In 1999 he succeeded Ian Platt as the non-voting chairman of the adjudicators.
Rod is also a member of the RPS Associate and Fellowship Panel for Visual Art.
Although Anne & Rod are successful professional photographers with a busy portrait studio – twice MPA Scottish Portrait Photographer of the Year – they have never lost their amateur roots, competing and exhibiting widely. Between them they have nearly 5000 acceptances and over 250 awards in national and international exhibitions.
