Michael Fabricant, Honorary President of the Lichfield Camera Club, awarded prizes at the Annual Exhibition of Members’ Work at the Chasewater Innovations Centre on Saturday 3rd July where the photos will continue to be displayed until 1st August.
Michael, himself a keen photographer, says "The standard of work is very high and well worth a visit. I am very proud to be the Club’s President following on from the late Lord Lichfield who was my predecessor. The Exhibition is open up until and including Sunday 1st August. There are some amazing wildlife shots including a herd of giraffe at the crack of dawn. But one of my favourite’s is a moody and misty shot of Gentleshaw churchyard in the snowy mid winter."
Clive Allerton, Club Chairman, says "All the images in the Exhibition have been produced by members of the Club whether on the latest hi-tech equipment, pocket camera, or on film. Michael, our President, presented trophies to members achieving success in the exhibition and in the merit standings accumulated in club competitions throughout the 2009/2010 club season.
"Notable among the trophies presented was the Michael Fabricant President’s Award for Advanced Digital Projected images, a new award this year, which went to Franco Kowalczyk.
"Among other awards Michael presented was the Best Colour Print ‘Winter Fog & Sun in Churchyard’ to Sarah Bradbury. It was taken at Gentleshaw." Irene Froy EFIAP MPAGB judged the competition.
