Talk by George Pearson

Report by Marjorie Burge.

Friday 9th November, an APS Club Night, George Pearson ARPS DPAGB took us through his recent camera shoot in Romania where he was part of a small group of photographers, under the wing of Intrepid Exposures, driving and walking through the remoter parts of Romania. We were shown beautiful images documenting the way of life where people were self-sufficient, keeping their own animals, growing their own food, spinning, harvesting, and living happily together in an aging community, the younger generation having moved to the cities to lead a more modern way of life.

George is a very discerning photographer, getting to know the people he was photographing, careful not to intrude but making the most of every moment presented for the camera - ‘the story is the important thing’ – and his pictures told their story. Although part of the day was supervised photography, by rising early, George was able to capture some breathtaking images of misty forests, church spires and mountains, with autumn colours caught in the morning sun. An inspiring evening of superb photography and an excellent narrative.

Next Friday, 16th November, Jack Taylor will be judging our Tony Culver Portrait Trophy competition. Visitors always welcome.

We meet every Friday at Givaudan Sports and Social Club, Kennington Road, Ashford TN24 0LT starting at 7.30, with coffee and bar facilities. We are a very friendly club with photographers of all levels; tuition is given at workshops for members and on club outings members can team up to gain experience. You are welcome to come along as a visitor, talk things through and make some friends, before making that final decision. Find out all about us at or telephone our secretary Katrina Devenport on 01303 814842 if you have any questions.
