OWPG Zooms

We have now launched a series of remote Zoom meetings at which Guild members and guests will make presentations on a range of subjects which we hope will be of interest to you all. These are usually only open to members, however occasionally for topics of wider interest (eg Peter and Leni’s talk on Everest) we may open up participation outside the Guild.

When?

The series started in January and takes place on the third Wednesday of the month, running from 7pm-8pm.

The presenter will speak for 30-40 minutes and there will be 20-30 minutes for discussion.

We will usually also keep the lines open after the presentation for informal chat among members.

Who is speaking – and about what?

Next speaker:

Wed May 19 7pm: Peter and Leni Gillman on tales from the Everest photo archives 1921-1953. 

Come to the OWPG’s next Zoom Event where Peter and Leni Gillman (authors of The Wildest Dream biography of George Mallory) unravel some mysteries from among thousands of Everest photographs held by the Royal Geographical Society.

This is a publically accessible zoom open to a wider audience than just our members. It will be held on Wed May 19, starting at 7pm. (Members may access the zoom link earlier in our private forums (login required)).

The link to access this event will be posted shortly before the event begins. Please return to this page later to access the link if it is not yet shown.


Past speaker(s):
  • Wed April 21: Chris Howes on Photographic Flash Underground (Caving Photography)
  • Wed Jan 20: David Taylor on Landscape Photography
  • Wed Feb 17: Sabi Phagura on Making the most of Social Media
  • Wed Mar 17: Guest speakers Karen Lloyd & Tim Ecott on narrative non-fiction
Future speakers:
  • TBA

How to access?

The presentations will offer a mix of entertainment and instruction, with the aim that you should both enjoy the talks and learn something from them.

If you miss the Zoom we may have a recording available – we will post these in the OWPG Forums (login required) where available.

Further info

We will send Zoom invitations to all members nearer the time.

In addition, we now also offer more informal meetings (OWPG Blether!) where members can come together to consider matters of common interest.
