The next meeting of Mallow Camera Club will take place on Monday 13 May in the Mercy Centre. The guest speaker will be Gerry Andrews FIPF.
Gerry is a native of Limerick and his amazing photographs of the Milk Market in Limerick, taken in the late seventies, have been highly acclaimed, and published in a book.
Nowadays Gerry spends much of his time travelling the world photographing what he wants. As he says himself ‘I don’t know whether I’m a traveller interested in photography or a photographer interested in travel’.
You can see Gerry’s images on his website www.gerryandrews.com
In the meantime here’s one from his travels in Peru. Come along on the night to see more.

All club members are asked to provide two images/prints for exhibiting on the night.
If you would like to donate a prize for the raffle please bring it along to the next meeting on Monday 13 May.
Watch this space for more information.
Bring your camera gear – ask any questions you’d like to know about composition, focussing, lighting, technical stuff, useful or useless accessories. Anything really…
Bring along your photos for advice and critiquing in small discussion groups of four or five people. Ask questions about anything you’d like to know or have doubts about. Don’t forget, we now meet at the Mercy Centre, Mallow, 8-8.30pm training. 8.30-10.15 club meeting.
Meetings of Mallow Camera Club will be held in the Mercy Centre, Mallow, from now until the end of May 2013.
Training for novice members is from 8-8.30 every Monday night, followed by the usual club meeting.
Our speaker on 8th April will be Bill Power, who will present a portfolio of his work including images from his visit to the cemeteries of Flanders and Ypres in 2013.
All are welcome.
It’s a competition night with the theme ‘Broken’. Members can submit three print and three projected images. These can be brought in on the night. Subjects for the theme ‘Broken’ could include glass, windows, old houses, closed businesses, broken bulbs, fallen trees, eggs, potholes, death, rusting cars, etc. One website defines broken as “reduced to fragments, not functioning properly, out of working order, a sky being more than half but not covered in clouds, changing direction abruptly.”
Members are invited to our practical photography skills workshop which is being held in Killarney on Monday next. Anyone interested in traveling is invited to be at The Arches Bar in Mallow by 10am (if you wish to car share) or meet at Molly Dancy’s Pub at Mucross at 11am. We will be taking pictures on the lakes area, having a bit of craic and doing what we all love. Most of all, we’ll be learning and sharing knowledge about photography.
Bring your camera, tripod, filters and remote shutter release (if you have them), plus anything else that you think might come in handy. The event is going ahead regardless of weather conditions (we have an ‘indoor plan’) so bring rainwear and boots or wells.
We plan to ‘recover’ afterwards in a local hostelry. For more info, contact Aisling O’Connor, Viv Buckley or Bill Power, who are co-ordinating the workshop.

Mallow Camera Club is looking for images for selection on to our panels for the upcoming SACC Interclub Competition, which will take place on 24th March. The club will be entering three panels again this year, Colour Print, Monochrome Print and Digital Projected Image; each panel consisting of ten images. Each photographer can have up to two images on each panel i.e. a total of six images.
The selection committee are asking all club members, advanced, intermediate and novice to submit images for consideration on Monday night next, 11th March. Images for consideration should preferably be prints, plus corresponding high resolution image files on CD or memory stick (both to be submitted at the same time). The image files must be of high quality and capable of being printed to competition size.
There are prizes for both clubs and individuals in the SACC Interclub Competition so it is worth putting your best images forward for consideration. There is no entry fee for individuals, as only clubs pay an entry fee to the competition.
The more images we have to select from, the more likely we’ll have a quality panel – so please try to submit a few for consideration.
Don’t forget the next club meeting will be in the Mercy Centre on Monday 11th March (see post below).
Mallow Camera Club will hold its next meeting in the Mercy Centre, Mallow on Monday next 11th March. The Mercy Centre is beside St. Mary’s Secondary School on the north side of the town.

Fermoy Camera Club will be our guests on the night and members will be showing a selection of their work. Fermoy CC is a new club and our closest neighbouring club, being just downstream of Mallow on the River Blackwater.
Please pass on the word about the new venue to other members of the club.
