Damien Demolder at Richmond PS tomorrow

Postby Steve B » Wed 09 May 2018, 16:23

I don't normally pass on details of all the speakers at external camera clubs but thought this might interest some members. Tomorrow Damien Demolder is speaking at Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society, The Avenue, Richmond TW9 2AJ this Thursday, 10 May, entitled ‘Street Photography, Light and Life on the Street’.

Damien is a photographer, journalist and photographic equipment expert, speaker, judge and educator. He has worked in the photographic publishing industry since 1997, including 15 years at the world’s only weekly photo magazine, Amateur Photographer, where he was editor. Damien judges for major competitions including the 2017 Sony World Photo Awards (where he was Chair of Judges for the Open, National and Youth categories), for Take a View (Landscape Photographer of the Year), Amateur Photographer of the Year, International Garden Photographer of the Year, British Heart Foundation Red Heart competition and the Thames Festival. http://www.damiendemolder.com

Doors open at 19:30 with the presentation starting at 20:00. A charge of £5 will be made to visitors. Please email secretary@rtps.org.uk to let them know in advance that you will be coming along.

Damien Demolder is an entertaining and informative speaker who was our Wratten lecturer in 2013. Anyone going to this who has interest in street photography should gain a lot from it, although I would recommend travelling by public transport. A year or two ago I spoke at RTPS and the traffic on the way there was horrendous, but admittedly it was much easier on the journey home. The club meets a short walk from Kews Gardens Underground station.

Went along this evening and well worth the trip. Picked up the following tips:
Know what your camera can do and make the most of it.
Keep your camera on aperture priority
Make the most of the light for your time of day, shadows silhouettes.
Having small cameras really worth while for street photography...ones you can fit into your pocket, or make you look like tourist.

Hi Sarah,
Good to know that you went and found it helpful.
Should we have him revisit our club?
He was our Wratten Lecturer @ £500 some years ago before my time!

He was excellent. Though I would try to stop him advertising how wonderful Panasonic is during his talk. It’s what made run well over time.

Should I check him out for our club, assuming he is affordable?
