September 2019 Shorts socks and sandals

FCC were back in business on 10th Sept as we gathered for our first meeting after our break for the summer.We had a lot to catch up on and plans to put into place. We had the results of our Summer Challenge 'Shorts, socks and sandals' which was judged by local photographer Pat Quinlan.
Pat is an extremely talented and patient photographer, who you will often see leaning over Fermoy bridge capturing the wildlife through his camera lens.Thanks again Pat.

What a lovely reunion we had meeting with the wonderful Lenka Svarcova. Lenka a past member of our club moved to Liverpool 5 years ago. A superb and talented street photographer from the Czech Republic, Lenka soon swooped her Czech/Cork accent to a Liverpool/Czech accent while roaming the streets of vibrant Liverpool catching the most candid and unusual perspectives of city life.
With fellow photographer Mike Fahy they set up LMP Crosby, a photography business with a growing reputation for portraits, events, commercial shoots and Weddings. Also to mention a successful working partnership with the Peaky Blinders bar where Lenka and Mike create superb Peaky Blinder shoots for patrons and tourists who visit the bar.
Come back soon Lenka, it was lovely to catch up with you.
