President’s Evening

President’s Evening

It is traditional for Wakefield Camera Club’s President to organise a special evening of their choice. For Peter Wells, our President for the last three years, this was to be his last such occasion.

So this year, Peter had invited Marilyn Roberts, a significant and popular Yorkshire photographer to come and give a talk.

Marilyn has been a judge both at YPU level and national level for many years and is the immediate past president of the YPU. She is also a PAGB mentor and has helped our own Sara Cremer gain her CPAGB recently.

In front of a packed audience Marilyn regaled tales of her “career” including many of her own images and stories about what goes on “behind the scenes” at judging events.

It was a great evening which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

Apparently, this was the last talk Marilyn will be giving, so we were privileged to be the only club to hear it.

Many thanks Marilyn.

Peter Wells, our outgoing President with Marilyn Roberts, the outgoing President of the Yorkshire Photographic Union.
