Bruce has arranged for Viveca Koh to give a talk to the Bedford CC on March 10th
The online magazine f11 has an article about Viveca (in the form of an interview illustrated with her images) in the March edition (pages 20-47) which can be viewed online at f11 or downloaded as a PDF
If you haven’t seen f11 then take a look. It is produced by a team of photographers from New Zealand and carries interviews and articles from photographers from around the world. It contains many inspiring images to enjoy and it is free each month. Back issues can be found on the f11 web site
Bedford CC narrowly missed out on a place in the second round, finishing a very creditable 16th out of the 34 clubs who entered. John Pegram’s “Bearded Seal” was one of only 5 images (out of a total of 660) to be awarded the maximum 15 points. Congratulations and very well done to John.
Beyond Group who were first and Norfolk Photography Group who were 2nd will go on to represent the EAF at the PAGB PDI Championships in Warwick later in the year. Ipswich & District Photographic Society came 3rd.
