Andy Burns “Nightime and Lowlight Photography”
“I have been interested in photography since my early teens when I was given a camera as a birthday present. Over the years I found that it was a hobby that I picked up and put down depending on time, family and work commitments. However, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to train professionally as a forensic photographer and to work in that role for almost 20 years. Now in semi retirement I have the time to follow my own interests which include landscape,architectural and night time photography.”

Glenys Garnet “Get Creative”
Glenys lives and work in Wakefield as a full time freelance Photographer, Artist and Graphic Designer and works exclusively in the digital medium.
Glenys claims not to be a purist about photography. She uses the camera as a tool, the first part of the process of producing an image, often with an artistic intent rather than a documentary capture. This may involve a number of creative techniques, including multiple exposure, ICM (intentional camera movement) and sometimes a combination of both.
This presentation is a general overview to Glenys’s work, her influences and creative approach. Glenys will talk about the techniques used to create her work both in camera , using photoshop and also using alternative capture means such as scanner and wet media.
