Keith & Kate’s stunning AV evening adds cash to our coffers

Audio Visuals (AV’s) are about adding another dimension to photography by combining high quality photographic images with music, narration and other sound effects. Keith Brown FRPS FIPF EFIAP MPAGB APAGB and Kate Brown LRPS DPAGBhave been making AV’s award winning AV’s for many years.

By winning a silver medal for their Grease, Gaskets & Gears compilation at the Royal Society of Photography’s 2013 Audio Visual competition, the duo have demonstrated that they are both past and present masters of this demanding multi-skilled media. On 22nd August members & guests were delighted to pack the pews to view some of K&K’s AV’s, at St Edmund’s Church, Castleton.


Below, Keith & Kate (pictured each side of our club president, Peter Harrison) kindly offered to present a number of their audio visuals to members and guests – many of who live in Castleton and know Roger Thorpe, the star of Grease, Gaskets & Gears. The AV evening covered topics including Keith’s
tribute to the Beatles; an amusing take on the Beep Beep song, the little Nash Rambler; 84 year old Connie Brown’s first visit to Switzerland, and of
course the award winning Grease Gaskets & Gears.

Nick Chalkley with the Denis Thorpe Trophy for Nick’s 2014 winning monochrome
image entitled ‘Walkies’. Denis, who is famous for his B&W images, had selected
‘Walkies’ as the winner.



During the intermission guests perused the 70+ images members of club had submitted for our annual competition. these images had been mounted on foam-backed boards by Honorary Life Member Ray Fowler. The £128 proceeds from entrance fees for the AV evening will be added to our kitty, enabling us to purchase high quality display mounts; making the task of mounting and exhibiting our images both easier and slicker
