2019 BPC PROGRAMME



September 3rd
Photographing dogs and horses by Rae Prince of Rae Prince Photography

Ever wondered how certain photographers manage to capture the expression, movement and the all-round joie de vivre of dogs or the might and majesty of horses.

Getting an animal to pose for the camera is never easy, but get it right and it's a wonderful thing.

Rae Prince photographs dogs and horses and she's very good at it!

She says...

"My name is Rae and I live next to the Tardebigg Flight, the longest flight of canal locks in the country!

My two lovely hounds, Betty and Hector join me for regular walks along this stretch and for years I've taken photographs of them which has led me, despite the old adage to never work with animals, to become a professional pet photographer.

Our pets quickly become part of our families and I love capturing their expressions and antics, their personalities, to create a perfect memento.  

My work has been featured in many national publications, including The Guardian and several industry and pet related magazines.  One of my images has been shortlisted for this year's Top 100 International Pet Photographers.

Although I mainly work with dogs and horses I have worked with animals of all shapes and sizes including: ducks, tortoise and giant African land snails.

I'm really looking forward to meeting BPC Members and hope that they will find what I have to say both enjoyable and useful in building their own skill base."

Visit www.raeprincephotography.co.uk to see what can be achieved when everything comes together and then put the 3rd September in your diary to discover how.



October 1st
Photographing the night sky by LCE's Gareth Watson

Check those photo mags and almost every one will include at least one photograph of the night sky.  Stunning images of the Milky Way, the Aurora Borealis or simply a pin sharp image of the constellation hanging over our own postcode! 

How do they do that!

London Camera Exchange's Worcester Manager, Gareth Watson, will join BPC again, this time presenting a selection of photos from his recent shoot in Norway and will follow this with a short talk about the kit and camera settings that will help others to capture those amazing night skies.


November 5th
Mock Judging by Terry Livesey

  • Have you ever entered a photography competition?
  • Do you always agree with the judge's comments?
  • Have you ever critiqued somebody else's photograph (and did the friendship live to tell the tale)?


Terry Livesey runs his own photography business, photography studio and is a photography judge and will join BPC Members on 5th November when he will mock judge a selection of members' work.

This is an ideal opportunity for members to submit work for Terry to cast his eye over before submitting it to the December Club Competition or any other competition.  Terry will mock judge either print or digital images, simply email birlinghamphoto@btinternet.com with digital images of up to 2Mb or bring your print/s on the night.

This will be a truly interactive session where members can challenge and question Terry on his comments in order to find out what judges look for when awarding points and prizes.


December 3rd
Annual digital image competition

It's digital image time!  BPC Members are invited to submit up to three digital images to the annual competition, which for 2019 has been held over two separate events, hard copy in August and digital in December.  This is an open theme competition and free to enter.

Please send your digital files, no bigger than 5Mb, to birlinghamphoto@btinternet.com by midnight, Sunday 24th November 2019.
