12th. June 2017 – An evening with Roy Jacobson (CPAGB)

Roy Jacobson (CPAGB) A local photographer who took us on his personal journey.

Unfortunately our scheduled speaker was unable to attend on June 12th, and so at very short notice we approached Roy Jacobson, who willing stepped into the breach and what a treat we had.

Roy started his programme with his first love, which is clearly wildlife photography and in particular birds from both home and abroad. It was quite pleasing to see so many great shots taken at our local Wetland Centre at Slimbridge. This half concluded with a stunning and moving Audio Visual of his wildlife.

In the second half of his presentation Roy treated us to many stunning images of Aircraft in flight. Just how did so many of those images appear to be below the camera position – very clever. Again it was gratifying to see that these images mainly came from the International Air Tatoo at Fairford. Roy closed the evening with another stunning Audio Visual but this time matching both birds and Aircraft in flight.

Not only did Roy’s images hold our attention but his narrative with hints and tips made the whole evening really enjoyable.

We all hope that Roy will grace us with another presentation in the near future.
