Our first night back, on Monday 2nd September and starting at 7:30pm, is the Inter-Club Photographic Alliance (ICPA) Annual Lecture, hosted by Chorley PS.
This is a special event to start us off for the year and our guest speaker will be Alex Benyan. Alex is a professional photographer, educator and speaker based in Leicester and a Principal Photographer for Sony. He specialises in commercial and corporate portraits and takes inspiration from photographers and artists from all over the world. He is also very much a people person and loves working with individuals and teams to achieve the best results from their photoshoot through gentle posing guidance and personality coaching at every session.
In addition to a buffet to keep us all fed, Wilkinsons Cameras will also be bringing a range of Sony Cameras and lenses for us.
This evening has an entry fee of £2, which is set by the ICPA. However, Chorley PS will pay this fee for members of the club.
