May 5th – Guest Speaker Catherine MacBride

This Tuesday, May 5th at the TPS we have a very special guest speaker in Catherine MacBride.  Catherine was a past member of the TPS along with her husband Scott and achieved her LIPF and AIPF as a TPS member.  Cat is also a talented artist and often combines her arts and crafts with her distinctive style of tabletop photography.  She is possibly Ireland’s most successful stock photographer having sold many images through the likes of Getty and Stocksy.  She has had several of her images used on book covers and is a regular contributor to Digital SLR Photography magazine.  See Cat’s website for a glimpse of her photographs.  Our meeting begins at 8pm sharp so don’t be late!

Tuesday is also our themed one-shot competition entry night!  May’s theme is Creative Self Portraits and was chosen by April’s winner David Turnbull.  Turn those cameras on yourself to be in with a chance to win!

May 12th is the deadline for getting your Best Four Portfolio images into us.  Members can enter four images in each of the disciplines, Colour Print, Black and White Print and Digital/Projected images.  This is a non-divisional competition i.e. novice, advanced and premier all compete against one another.  Again, the submissions are given to an impartial judge who picks winners in each of the three categories and an over-all winner.
