“The Way I see it” – A Talk By Gerry Coles – Thursday 8th October

The way I see it  covers Gerry’s journey from film to digital photography and the work he has produced since 2009 when he started to enter national and international exhibitions. Gerry is a member of the Duston Camera Club.

These are details of his biography from his website

“I have been interested in photography for many years, and like most club photographers my main interest was producing black and white prints in the darkroom. I achieved my LRPS in 1988 and ARPS in 1994, both with panels of black and white prints.

I am now totally digital and really enjoy the creative possibilities that are available to us as photographers. At the beginning of 2010 I decided to submit a panel of digital colour prints for assessment for ARPS, which I am pleased to say was successful.

I decided at this time to enter national exhibitions which are controlled by BPE (British Photographic Exhibitions) to date I have received over 250 acceptances and over 40 awards. It seemed a natural follow on to enter International exhibitions controlled by FIAP (The International Federation of Photographic Art) which, since the beginning of 2010, I have received over 350 acceptances and over 40 awards, obtaining my AFIAP in March 2011 and EFIAP in June 2014.

Being a club photographer I submitted a panel of prints to the PAGB (The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain) and received my DPAGB in April 2011.”
