Presentation Night Wednesday 13 November 7.15pm Macro Photography – Neville Foster

I am proud to belong to our club which has so many gifted photographers.  Neville Foster EFIAP/b, MAPS, Hon.FAPS, SSAPS is one such member.  He is a quiet achiever who quietly attends the meetings,  but enjoys nothing more than talking with other members and sharing his knowledge. Neville is an expert Nature and Macro Photographer and has been awarded numerous International and National medals.  He has also participated on International and National judging panels and has also assisted in the organisation of International and National competitions.

Neville is a master of photography.  His images are breath-taking.  He has a wealth of knowledge and I feel sure that you will agree with me that this presentation will be one of the highlights of the year.
