The February meeting of the Eurobodalla Photography club welcomed John Frazer from St Peters Broulee as our guest judge for the night. The set topic was Sand which gave photographers plenty of scope within the shire.
Entries for the monthly competition ranged from sand sculptures and exotic landscapes to textures, tracks and objects in the sand. John, as an experienced professional photographer and teacher, provided expert critiques of the submitted entries.
Later in the evening, John gave the group an informative and inspiring presentation of his own work in the field of sport photography.
