Going underground. Ian Bateman with chairman Nigel West.
Members of the Dawlish & Teignmouth Camera Club sat enthralled as guest speaker, Ian Bateman FRPS, MPAGB, AV AFIAP, showed a variety of his beautiful audio-visual presentations. Ian is a well-known local photographer based in Exmouth, where he is also a member of the Camera Club.
Ian was the first photographer to gain a FRPS (Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society) – the highest level of Distinction for Audio Visuals - and so blazed a trail for those that followed. His individual images have also achieved widespread success with many appearing on magazine covers or winning competitions nationwide.
The stunning photography with accompanying narration, or stirring piece of music, transported the audience to the Chihuly Glass Centre, Seattle to see the impressive works by Dale Chihuly, before moving on to witness the phenomenon of ‘The Oregon Vortex’. Then it was a whistlestop tour on the cable car down from the Big Buddha on Lantau Island before being whisked to the Palau de la Musica, Barcelona to admire the spectacular architecture of Lluis I Montaner. Ian also showed a selection of award-winning audio-visual presentations from around the United Kingdom, including a dazzling timelapse of the London Underground.
Chairman, Nigel West, thanked Ian for providing such an interesting and entertaining evening.
Dawlish & Teignmouth Camera Club meets on Wednesday evenings at Holcombe Village Hall and offers a varied programme of guest speakers, competitions and learning workshops and new members are always welcome. Contact us for more information.
