"Cotswold & Cornish Cream"


An evening inspired by the beauty of Martin’s native Gloucestershire and the spectacular Cornish landscape. Martin just likes capturing that magical moment from the rolling hills of the Cotswolds to the drama of the Cornish Coast. He is one of the leading exponents of audio-visual in the country. This passion stems from his love of photography and combining images, in particular the ‘magical’ third image.

"Matlock and Cable Car construction."

Christopher Stone

Matlock was a Spa town and for many years tourists came to walk around its hills. When built, the cable car gave better access to the hills and good views. This gave me better access to take photographs

"Wildlife From Further Afield"

Whilst the UK may have a wide variety of charismatic wildlife species, sometimes the allure of travelling and exploring new locations can be difficult to resist. Making the most of your time whilst away is important to capture memorable images and can also help to develop your approach when you do return home.

"Endless Skies"

Malcolm Cook EFIAP/p.

Skies are my real love in photography.
As photography and technology continued to advance l decided to push the art of landscape images to a new level and try to change judge’s minds in exhibitions and not score of 2 and 3 in the open exhibitions.

Endless Skies is all about how to get the best out of your raw files and to see landscapes and magnificent sky on a new level.

I enclose Sports and other images on the night for the non-landscaper to enjoy.
Tonight you will need an open mind and a sense of humour, plus a pen and paper.
