Another great evening on Friday 3rd October when Ian Stone DPAGB and Marie Laure Stone DPAGB EFIAP BPE4* brought their ‘Worldwide Photography’ to the club. From small beginnings with a Kodak, and winning a trip to Australia their life of photography has indeed taken them worldwide, and we were lucky that they took time out to show us their amazing images of wildlife, landscapes and the people they met during their travels. Ian and Marie also took us through the steps they had taken along the way to achieve their skills, showing the wildlife panel Ian put together to gain his DPAGB and explaining some of the mysteries of distinctions. Distinctions well deserved as shown by their images of wild horses taken as they travelled through remote and wild areas in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
