4th November 2019 Light is Everything to Coventry PS

Hi Bill,

Just to say thank you very much for your talk last Monday evening. I found it really inspiring and judging by the feedback I've received so did everyone else. In particular, one member has said that your talk put her on the right track to achieving what she has been trying for. So once again, thank you for a truly inspirational evening.

Hi Bill,

Attended your recent(-ish) talk at Northampton Camera Club and found it to be really fascinating hence my purchase! (of the landscape book)

Hi Bill

Thank you for coming to the club last night and making your fascinating presentation.

It was enjoyable to see images that were taken of everyday subjects and taken just for the love of photography. Your tips will also be invaluable when we venture out for 60 mins in Brum.

Thanks also to Georgina for coming with you, hope to book you again in the future.

Best regards

I would just like to say how much I and another 8 members (when we were 
talking in the pub later) enjoyed your talk last week. It made me 
rethink more about the light and not the just the scene in front of me 
when composing pictures.

It is interesting seeing your Teeside images and I enclose one that I 
took when we had a Melbourne PS away weekend up in the North East in 
November last year. This is one image where it was the light that took 
my interest and decided to try and take the image as a silhouette and 
show the rays of sunshine. So maybe I was already subconsciously 
thinking about the light.
Best regards

Hi Bill, 
Just a quick thanks for your inspirational presentation last night. So many excellent images and techniques shared with us.The feedback received from members is very good and already our secretary is planning a landscape trip.
We hope that you and your good lady had a safe journey back home.
Thanks once again and kind regards

Hi Bill & Georgina,
Many thanks for making the effort to visit us, last night, and entertain us so well with your "Urban Photography" lecture - it went down very well (lots of comments on the DRPS Facebook page).
Urban Photography is a subject most photographers like, but, perhaps, unsure how to start - your lecture, hopefully, addressed that. I am certainly looking forward to seeing some images in the coming months!
Once again, many thanks,
Programme Secretary - Desborough & Rothwell PS

Hi Bill, really loved the presentation last night you did for us at the Walsall Wood and Brownhills camera club. 
Have looked at the pictures on your website today, and can honestly say they are some of the best landscapes I’ve ever seen. You are quite right, light is everything. 
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Dear Bill
On behalf of the members of the Sileby Photographic Society may I thank you for your talk and digital presentation on “Digital Monochrome Methods”. What a great evening you gave us, with some very striking mono images, which as you showed us started out, as rather flat RAWs, on a very soggy day, but this does suite mono well in a lot of cases. And to go with great images you gave us the method to create such images. I must say mono is one of my favourite types of our great pastime; one can take an ordinary image and turn it in to a piece of art.
Once again many thanks and we hope to see you again soon
Yours Faithfully
Richard Storier, Secretary

Hello Bill,
As I drove home last, I thought I must send you a note of thanks, for a thoroughly entertaining and inspirational evening.  Well, it seems my friends and colleagues have done the job for me! It's only 10:00 am and already I've had a flood of emails saying how much they enjoyed your talk.
Here are some of the comments:-
"I don't think I shall become a landscape photographer any time soon (already too many camper vans on the road) but what a refreshing view on photography shown by Bill last night. He seemed to confront and break all the conventions to great effect. Also what a genuinely nice guy he was."
"Bill is an engaging speaker with a refreshing attitude to his photography.
His images were pretty good too!!"
"Completely agree that he was an excellent choice of speaker. Some stunning images, all from the UK, and within reach of all of us."
I couldn't have put it better myself.

So, thank you very much - from all of us at Stratford Photo Group - and I wish you and your wife a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year. I hope 2016 presents you with many more opportunities to produce beautiful photographs.

Thanks and Best Regards,
Peter Gilbert, Programme Secretary, Stratford Photo Group
