Our challenges

July 2021

Members of the Group, inspired by top fashion and portrait photographer Rankin’s recent TV series The Great British Photographers Challenge, set off around Hyde Park to replicate one of the challenges of the show. This was to capture photographs on a theme, using only with cameraphones, in just one hour – the theme being ‘Parklife’.
At the end of the challenge the group met back up for refreshments and general hilarity at the wonderful Zaha Hadid designed café next to the Serpentine North gallery, where the group had also earlier visited the exhibition of Ghanaian photographer James Barnor.


Members then had to pick three of their best shots to be shared later when they met up to view the results. Flora and Fauna figured prominently, an obliging heron posing gracefully, and a very fine couple of horsemen.

March 2021

The Photographers and Photography Group resumed in March by Zoom: at this meeting we looked at some of the leading travel photographers of the world including Susan Seubert, the wonderfully named Art Wolfe, Ami Vitale, Stephen Wilkes, Hamid Sardar and David Lazar.

Members also picked one of their own travel photographs to share and these included the atmospheric photograph of Tibetan monks taken by Janet Sutherland and Ian Skerritt’s photo of shoreline harvesters in Chiloé in Chile.
