To mark the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year panels of prints, taken by member Joan Williams,
was prominently on display near the entrance. Whilst working for the BBC as its Chief Stills Photographer, Joan had many opportunities
to photograph the Queen, both on formal and informal occasions.

Reception

 

The organisation of the shop is one such example. Members sell cards they have made and other photographic items such as
books and equipment. All members are welcome to attend the Opening and enjoy the opportunity to showcase their work.

At the Opening

56 members each had panel(s) on display. These panels are usually themed – the choice is left to the individuals concerned. Whilst the
majority of the printed images have been taken and printed digitally, some still choose to use old processes or mix old methods with new.

Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite panel and the winner was Jane Fakouri, who will hold the Richmond Trophy for the forthcoming year.
