I am partially deaf, so if anyone leaves a message on my answer ‘phone, please speak clearly, especially when leaving a contact number!

The talk is in aid of the Speer Road Church building fund.

For those who do not know about Charlie, here is a brief introduction.

Charlie was an actor before he became a photographer and his talks are entertaining as well as being illustrated with fantastic images, so please encourage your “other halves” to come along too.

He has had solo exhibitions in America, Japan, Australia and, of course, in London. He has written more than 30 books.

Charlie and Sue Bishop founded the company “Light and Land” in 1996. Many workshop tours, worldwide, have taken place since then. One of his leaders is Joe Cornish. At the RPS Travel Group Day in April, Joe gave praise and thanks to Charlie who encouraged him in his early days as a landscape photographer.

Charlie founded the competition “Landscape Photographer of the Year” in 2007 with a prize of £10,000. This is for images of the U.K. This has now been extended to the U.S.A.

Thank you.
