March 3rd Meeting – Composites with Jim Hatch

Jim Hatch, a professional photographer from Surrey, began his photographic journey at a very young age when he did his own processing in a dark room and printed his own photos.  He enjoys photographing sporting events, portraits, and many other genres of photography, but is mostly known for his creative photography composites. (hence his mantra “Rather than a Photographer, I consider myself more of an Artist with a Camera “

Jim joined the Langley Camera Club in 2001 and in 2003 joined CAPA (Canadian Association of Photographic Arts). He has won numerous awards and medals through competitions and national contests. He has been published in the Canadian Camera Magazine and the Surrey Arts magazine and has displayed his photos in art shows at the Surrey Cultural Centre and ABC Art Gallery.

January 7th, 2020: Photographer Dennis Ducklow on “Using Shutter Speed Creatively”

Shutter speed is often overlooked as a creative tool in our photography. We’re mostly familiar with freezing the action and showing motion but there are many other options along the continuum of shutter speeds that our cameras allow. This presentation will sharpen your awareness of the creative potential of shutter speed and leave you determined to try some new ideas.  (Some of Dennis’ creative photos are attached.)

Dennis Ducklow, a professional photographer from Langley, is in constant pursuit of the creative edge. In addition to offering photography to businesses and families, Dennis teaches introductory and intermediate photography as well as 7-day creative photography workshops called Develop Your Creative Vision.  He loves all aspects of photography and his current personal focus is expressive nature photography. You can view his most recent work on Instagram {doubleexposurephotog).
