Upcoming highlights from our exciting 2017-18 season.
Nigel A Ball – Astro Photography
Nigel’s interest in photography began in the 1970’s using firstly film (Ilford FP4) and then later slide (Kodachrome 25 and 64); developing and printing in a home darkroom with his father who won various Photographic Club awards for his close up photography. His interest in Astronomy began during the Apollo Moon missions back in the late sixties when he used to watch the coverage on the BBC.
‘I’ve always had a healthy or, some say, unhealthy interest in Astronomy and in recent times I’ve had more free time so I returned to the hobby and in particular Astrophotography and Night scape photography. I’ve always been interested in Mathematics and Science; I believe most of the natural world can be understood by these two disciplines. Astro and Night Photography allows me to combine my love of Maths, Science and real time software into one! ‘
Nigel was Elected Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2013 for his services to Astrophotography and his Public Outreach with his local Astronomy Society

Roger Evans – Every Picture tells a story
In 1978 Canon launched the revolutionary Canon A1 and the temptation was just too great, so I switched to Canon. Sport was important to me then and I played hockey, squash and golf. I lived close to the National psorts centre at Crystal Palace so it was inevitable that I started taking more of an interst in sports photography.
I have photographed at Spurs and Arsenal, National Hockey finals, AAA athletics, swimming, diving, powerboat racing, karate, gymnastica nd boxing to name a few.
The highlight was being lucky enought o photograph Seb Coe running for Loughborough University AFTER he had broken the 800m record.
