THE INNER LANDSCAPE - something really different and entertaining. It's Andy's take on the genre of "still life". You are shown an array of fabulous images, crafted, using only carefully controlled natural light. The objective of this lecture is to teach every photographer how its done, and that it is achievable by one and all. There are demonstrations throughout depicting each work through.

A professional photographer in landscapes, weddings, smallscapes and commercial photography, he also teaches Photoshop for The Epson Print Academy. He has been a landscape photographer for over 20 years and has a love for ‘Up North’ such as Lancashire, the Lake District, Yorkshire, and all over the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. He is an experienced lecturer / presenter and has presented his zoom talks on over a hundred occasions. As well as running his own photography business, Andy Phillips Photography, where he teaches landscaping, close up work and post processing, he works at Aspect2i, adding his post-processing and printing skills to the company.

Hamish Williamson - "Otzi the Iceman"

Hamish took early retirement from the financial industry approximately 30 years ago and became a full time photographer concentrating on commercial and wedding photography. He also worked on a freelance basis for a subsidiary of Kodak. Hamish joined Paisley Colour Photographic Club in 1989 and has been President twice and was their treasurer for many years.  He was an executive of the Paisley International Colour Slide Exhibition from 1990 and treasurer until its demise.

Hamish's talk is based on two holidays he and his wife had in the Sud Tyrol and where they stayed, which coincidentally was very near where the 5300 year old body of Otzi the Iceman was found.
