John Webster ARPS MPAGB: The Way I See It
John Webster, Northallerton CC, has lectured at Durham PS before – 6 times in the last 10 years! With wit and humour (if anything the jokes were even better) and considerable photographic erudition, the talking part was as good as ever. He took us on a magical journey, showing six of his amazing AVs (from a huge collection), reflecting his love of landscape and wildlife photography – to Provence in the lavender season, Skye, Lefoten Islands, Croatia, Canada and Iceland. Every picture was superb and his love of music and AV transition skills shone through. Altogether, a spell bindingly beautiful experience. Come back soon John!
