Peter Hayes, FRPS
Edward Chorlton, Vice Chairman, welcomed guest speaker, Peter Hayes to the weekly Dawlish and Teignmouth Camera Club meeting.

After a distinguished career as a journalist and film maker, Peter took up photography only a few years ago but has already achieved the highest recognition from the Royal Photographic Society. He also won a national newspaper photography competition last year.

He has established himself as an expert travel and street photographer and showed pictures taken in several countries including America, Morocco, Peru, Armenia and India. A year as photographer in residence at the newly opened Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham saw a complete change in subject matter. However, through all his pictures, Peter manages to capture the character, dignity and diversity of people in their environment.

Camera club member Colin Carter expressed the vote of thanks at the end of an entertaining and informative meeting. The club meets every Wednesday evening at Holcombe Village Hall –www.dandtcameraclub.co.uk.
