This Week at SPS

This Thursday 18th July we have ‘An Evening with’ Richard Spurdens, DPAGB, EFIAP/p, BPE4.
A quote from Richard about the evening:

I am well known for my studio and location work which includes fashion, dance and Artistic nude figure studies. However I do enjoy taking a range of other images, and my lecture will cover a variety of different themes. These will include some sporting events, a little bit of Landscape work, some Street photography and other areas that have interested me.
I then move on to my studio and location work which feature a range of great models that I have had the pleasure to work with. This work will feature Portraiture, Fashion, Dance and my Artistic Nude figure studies.

Doors: 7pm, programme begins at 8pm.
Entry fee: £3 for members, £4 for non-members.
