Dr Jim Frazier OAM Exhibition

Jim will be our final presentations speaker for 2019.  I have asked him to bring some of his butterfly books with him. They are $35 and have been produced for charity.  I will bring my copy to the next competition night so you can have a look at it.

Jim is currently exhibiting at the Olde Bridge Gallery, 1 Calcoola Street, Newbridge NSW 2795  7 September – 31 October 2019

Jim will be celebrating his Birthday on the night of his presentation and I have promised a birthday cake!

Thank you Warren Marshall

Warren gave a wonderful presentation on his photographic journey.  We were treated to his photographic journey on a bicycle in Australia, writing journal articles about it and surviving snakes and turbulent weather. Warren talked about the cameras that he had made and showed us some of the images produced by the cameras.  He progressed into professional photography, owns his Imagine Studio and conducts photography courses as Principal Photographer, Newcastle Photography College.  Warren is a photographic judge.  It was great to hear the amazing story of one of our judges.  Thank you Warren.
