RPS AV Day Trinity University Sunday 5th April 2020 starting at 10.30

Keith Leedham FRPS EFIAP FIPF 
My interest in photography started when I was 13 years old after my father bought me a camera for my birthday.
Together we joined a club and the interest grew. When I was 17 my camera went wrong, so I took it for repair, it was then that I applied for a job repairing cameras. Ever since then that has been my profession until I retired at 65.
I joined the RPS and went on to gain the FRPS in AV in 1987.
I have also served on The RPS International AV Festival committee for 26 years and I am still a member of that committee.
I have been attending and entering national and international AV festivals because I am quite competitive and enjoy meeting like-minded people.
I find AV a good way to express myself and have learnt so much by researching my own and watching other people’s sequences.
In order to try and give something back to my hobby I became chairman of the RPS AV Group committee for 5 years and a member of the RPS distinctions panel for L, A and F.
I am interested in close up and nature photography and many of my sequences are on that subject. I spend a lot of time watching and photographing insects.
I love music and my love of music helps me in the making of my sequences.
My lifelong interest in photography has gained me many friends all over the world as well as earning a living from it.

 

Timetable
The meeting starts at 10.30 with attendees’ sequences. This is your chance to show off your work and get some kind, helpful comments on improving it or maybe just saying how wonderful it is. This is always an important and enjoyable part of our day so please bring along your AVs.
