Our speaker is Allan Green FRPS
Allan attended Leeds College of Art, studying to be a graphic artist. He worked in advertising in Leeds before joining Rowntree & Co. in York in 1958, becoming responsible for seasonal designs, and using his interest in photography to produce pictures and designs for chocolate boxes, Christmas lines and Easter egg packaging.
His interest in photography began when he was a boy, attending Leeds Camera Club in the 1940s and 1950s, eventually serving on its council.
In 1955 he joined The Royal Photographic Society, and was made an Associate in 1957, and subsequently a Fellow. His main interest was black and white pictorial prints, many of which were accepted at national exhibitions, including the prestigious London of Salon of Photography.
To connect his love of music with his hobby, he became interested in audio visual work. He joined the RPS AV Group in its early days, and has since served on the RPS Distinctions panel. In 1993 his sequence ‘When the Grass was Greener’ won the National AV Championship. Two years later the sequence ‘Edward Elgar England’ won the Grand Prix at the Dutch International Festival. His work has been shown in many other countries including France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and Australia, and many awards have followed.
Allan is a prolific sequence maker, and has produced over 100, covering a wide variety of subjects. Allan will show us some of his sequences and relate how the stories, many of which are humorous, came about.
The meeting starts at 10.30 with attendee’s sequences. This is your chance to show off your work and get some kind, helpful comments on improving it or maybe just saying how wonderful it is. This is always an important and enjoyable part of our day so please bring along your AVs.
We will break for lunch about 13.00 and Allan will speak to us from 14.00 until about 16.30 or so with a break for tea/coffee at about 15.00.
