1. Epsom Camera Club on Monday 5 November

Leigh Preston FRPS EFIAP MPAGB: ‘I have been taking pictures for over forty years. My work has been mainly thematic, making images as a series. I have a relatively specific approach to what I choose to make pictures of, and I rely heavily on atmospherics, dramatic lighting and strong storylines to convey an individual style.

If 8pm Monday night is better for you please do come along and, as with Old Coulsdon, there will be a £5 visitor fee on the night.

Please send an email directly to me; if you wish to attend as we have a limited of seats available, so first come…. and I will provide details of our venue.
Both these evenings provide a rare opportunity to hear Leigh speak about and show his superb work.
Best wishes – Rosemary
