Recommended Posts

 

All
 
I would like to hilight this talk that is open to BPPA members and non-members. 
 
First up is Alan. Alan Crowhurst is an award-winning horseracing photographer contracted to Getty Images. His life has always involved racing, his grand father was a racecourse bookmaker. In this interview Alan talks about growing up in Brighton, taking up photography, his passion for his profession, what it takes to get an award-winning ‘Crowhurst’ shot and his hopes for the future.
 

Following Alan, John Downing's son Bryn Downing will present "Behind the Lens" , a 30 minute film on his father John Downing. 

After the film a slideshow of John's images alongwith the stories to go with them told by Hazel Thompson . Hazel has known John for 20 years, working with him on his "Legacy" book. 

 

If you are unaware of John's work - do a quick google and you will realise his impact on photojournalism as well as being a foundering member of the bppa ... 

 

This will be a great evening ... and is FREE!!!

Just a reminder guys... If you are at a loose end tonight, why not spend no money (free event) but spend it in good company, looking at great photos and hearing fantastic stories... You could even have a beer or three (that bits not free though)...
