Valley photographers snap up a silver medal

The Peak District with its continually changing weather, is blessed with superb countryside and iconic English villages; offering almost unrivalled scope for photographers. But few photographers can lay claim to wining a Royal Photographic Society medal. However, judges were so impressed with Keith & Kate Brown’s ‘Grease Gaskets & Gears’ entry in the 2014 Audio Visual competition, that the Royal Society awarded the couple a prestigious silver medal.

The compilation of competition images were first snapped last year when Keith & Kate, Stephen Elliott, Ray Fowler and others from Hope Valley’s Photographic Society, set up their cameras in a vintage car enthusiast’s garage. Stephen Elliott’s superb photo of a vintage Bugatti car was used in the opening sequence, when Keith & Kate used their skills to turn hundreds of photographs into the silver medal winning audio visual compilation.

You have an opportunity to see this award winning presentation, along with a range of Keith & Kate’s prize winning ‘audio visuals’ at St Edmund’s Church, Castleton at 7.30.pm on Friday August 22nd. Tickets can be purchased at the door: £4 – adults, £2 – 18 & under.

Even if you only take snapshots on your Smartphone, but have an interest in photography and you’d like to know more about Hope Valley’s friendly photographic society; email ian@ian-ord.co.uk or phone Ian on 01433 621 431.
