We have a growing band of Monochrome enthusiasts and they had a bit of a treat last night in the way of a talk from someone who is a leading exponent, Dr David Butcher ARPS. David left Ilford nearly 10 years ago to pursue a career as a professional photographer. He has since had 4 books published; his photographs have appeared in advertisements, brochures, the boardrooms of companies, in galleries and homes, all are monochrome. He also runs courses.

He took us with him on mountain journeys in France and Italy and then back to his native Derbyshire, The Lakes, Wales and Scotland. More recently David has been photographing the urban landscape and we saw pictures of London and Lincoln.

David was accompanied by his wife Jan. They run the courses together and you can find details of the courses and much more besides on David’s website;
