Dates For Your Diary:

Monday 17th January – CD Group – Members Night – Theme is ABSTRACT  Tonight members will show their abstract images to the astonishment of all.  We will also see images from the Christmas challenge.  

Wednesday 19th January Marsel van Oosten : For many, Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten needs no introduction. Marsel is an exceptionally talented and successful photographer having won first Prizes in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature’s Best International Photography Awards, two First Prizes in the Travel Photographer of the Year and several awards in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

The subject of Marsel’s presentation will be his latest book, MOTHER, which Marsel describes as a visual tribute to Mother Earth. It contains 320 pages with a selection of Marsel’s favorite wildlife and landscape images from the past 15 years, taken on five continents: Africa, North America, Antarctica, Asia, and Europe.  Successful conservation starts with awareness, and Marsel hopes that the images in his book will reconnect people to nature, make them realize that Mother Earth desperately needs our protection, and inspire them to take action.
During this online presentation Marsel will show some of his favourite images, and talk about the thought processes behind these. He will also show some behind-the-scenes images and footage, and at the end, there will be time to ask questions.  Learn about it here https://www.mother-book.com/  or  www.squiver.com
