Camera Club presentations

Epsom Camera Club September 2020

Ruth gave an enthralling Zoom based presentation entitled “Scotland – the tour” to Epsom Camera Club.  Her images were fantastic, she gave great commentary and included information about kit and settings used. Several members later commented that they throughly enjoyed hearing her speak.  Her passion, enthusiasm and skill clearly shine and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Ruth to any other club.  David Zinzan – Chair

Norfolk and District Photographic Society May 2020

“The members of Norwich & District Photographic Society were treated to an outstanding evening of photography last night when they hosted a ‘virtual presentation’ by local Norfolk photographer Ruth Grindrod who took us all on a ‘Photographic Journey to Scotland’

Starting in the Western Isles of Lewis and Harris, Ruth shared with us her image ‘Three Rocks’ taken at the Butt of Lewis  which was recently the overall winner of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards as well as winner of the Sea and Coast category.  What followed was a selection of superb images that were taken in the wide variety of constantly changing weather conditions that this part of the world is renowned for…!

Ruth we are all grateful to you for treating us to such a great evening and for sharing with us your knowledge and passion for landscape photography – we wish you continued success In the future.

You are always welcome at NDPS and we look forward to your planned visit next season when hopefully things have returned to normal. “

March Camera Club March 2020

“Thank you for your wonderful talk you gave March camera Club on Thursday You showed us fantastic images and prints and gave us a very informative talk on how you took the photographs which I am sure we all can learn from and can help to improve our landscape photography “

Framlingham Camera Club  November 2019

“Ruth Grindrod gave a highly illuminating lecture (in every sense) about her landscape photography on 21st November.  Ruth talks with great authority and enthusiasm about the subject.  We all learned much about how to approach landscape photography, and Ruth showed us how to think beyond the conventional in seeing landscapes.  In particular: good landscape photographs are not all taken near sunrise or sunset, and not all in good weather!”

Aldeburgh camera club September 2019

“Thanks for coming! It was one of the best talks we have had – well structured, illustrated with wonderful images and very informative. Can I book you again for next year?”

Colchester Photographic Society September 2019

“The audience enjoyed the images immensely and a lot was learnt from the way you explained them. I am sure many will have taken inspiration from your presentation. On a personal note as an intermediate photographer you helped me appreciate the processes that should precede actually taking shot!

Thank you once again, and we look forward to inviting you back in the future.”

North Norfolk Photographic Society March 2019

“Many within our club were eagerly looking forward to Ruths presentation on Landscape Photography and it is pleasing to report that the entire audience were completely enthralled by both the quality of the images and the informative presentation.  Ruth’s passion and enthusiasm for photography shone throughout the entire evening.  An inspired booking and one I am certain our club will seek to repeat in the not too distant future.

Phoenix Camera Club November 2018

“It was a delight to welcome Ruth to the Phoenix Group for Photography this evening. Ruth delivered a very informative talk involving her aspects of photography that captivated the audience. The prints of Ruth’s photographic work were also not to be missed. The whole evening provided each of us with some new and welcome ideas. I am more than happy to recommend Ruth to other clubs or societies.”

Aldeburgh camera Club September 2018

“Thank you so much for coming to talk to us (Aldeburgh Photography Group) last night, we all thought your images were beautiful. Your talk was fantastic, so informative, inspirational and your enthusiasm/passion very contagious. We would love you to come back and to talk to us again.”

Chet valley Loddon Camera club May 2018

“We all had a most enjoyable evening and I certainly learnt a lot from you last night and I know several other people did as well. What brilliant photos you have taken, but what a superb place Scotland is for taking photos.
I am sure I shall be in touch with you again for another one of your evenings.”
 
Norwich Photographic Society March 2018

” Thank you for your presentation ” Space to Breathe ” at Norwich & District Photographic Society on Tuesday. Yet again we were treated to superb landscape images , this time of Norway and Donegal along with plenty of tips and suggestions about landscape photography.
You are a confident and articulate speaker and always popular at my Society.”

Beccles camera club February 2018

“I just wanted to thank you for your talk to Beccles Camera Club last night. I found it thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring. I think that you struck a good compromise between the technical aspects of landscape photography and the enjoyment of your lovely images. On the way home I pondered your thoughts on techniques such as “photostacking” for ultimate front to back sharpness, and realized that your view accorded with the philosophy of P H Emmerson and his Naturistic Photography. Thank you again for a fascinating evening.”

Wayland and district Camera club December 17
“You gave us a really informative evening with superb images from “My Photographic Journey”
I am sure you could tell how much we enjoyed your amusing narrative with each stunning image.
Your enthusiasm for Landscape/Seascape photography clearly showed.
I have passed on the links and also included your email address to our members for their information, should they like to contact you for ‘In the Field Workshops’
No doubt we will be asking you to return in the future, to demonstrate some of your techniques in Photoshop.”

Norwich Photographic society January  2017
“Ruth recently visited our Society to give her presentation ” A Photographic Journey “. Many fine landscapes and plenty of tips on landscape photography.
One of the best evenings this season , and many requests from members to invite Ruth back. Has already been booked for next season’s programme !”

Brancaster camera club March 2017
“Several of your photographs will remain in my mind for some time to come. How your photograph which was  only the runner up in the Scottish competition amazes  me, what was the winner like? I thought yours was stunning , as were many of the others, thank you. I would like you return with your Norway photographs next year”
