Peter Preece of Solihull Photographic Society acknowledges his debt to the late Felix Dennis, the man behind The Heart Of England Forest Project. Peter has been actively involved in developing the forest to maximise wildlife diversity and to provide opportunities for wildlife photography. His fabulous photographs of kingfishers, red squirrels, owls and many other native birds, mammals, insects and reptiles are the result of, in his words, “90% preparation and 10% execution”. His images have brought him success in many exhibitions and competitions, including appearances in the BBC Countryfile calendar. His pictures are commercially successful, and he is much in demand as a speaker to various clubs and societies. On Friday 29th September members of the Desborough And Rothwell Photographic Society were privileged to have Peter and his wife Margaret present a selection of their work and the stories behind them. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked them both for a wonderful evening of great natural history photography.

The Desborough And Rothwell Photographic Society returned from its summer break on Friday 8th September with the traditional Chairman’s Evening. Current chairman Paul Nickerson brought along a selection of cameras and photographic equipment that he has used in his photography, starting with the classic Box Brownie inherited from his parents to the modern DSLR and lenses he uses today. He moved on to showing some of his early black and white prints taken from film. He then brought the proceedings up to date with some recent colour prints taken at venues associated with the classic TV series “Dad’s Army”, a particular interest of his. Following the break Paul introduced a light-hearted photographic quiz which caused a little head-scratching and a lot of laughter – a good way to start the second part of the photographic year at the club.
