March 2019 News


It is with deep sadness we record the passing of our colleague and friend, Vincent Morrissey, who passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. Vincent, a long standing member of Déise Camera Club, was an intelligent, selfless photographer who was truly one of life’s gentlemen. He had an amazing eye for taking photographs and we always enjoyed perusing his array of images captured on his travels. We extend our deepest condolences to his heartbroken family, relatives and friends. Rest in Peace Vincent you will be greatly missed.



It has been a busy start to the year so far with members getting out and about, at home and away, enjoying capturing the wonders of landscapes, night skies, coastal and urban vistas. Many members take the opportunity to double up and explore together some interesting places seeking out those special standout images we all seek!



We are delighted to congratulate Jim Kennedy who was awarded  a Licentiateship in Photography from the Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers (SINWP) recently. This is a very specific competition where each image has to reach exacting standards in order to be considered. That will tell you the calibre of Jim’s photography skills to achieve this honour. We were treated to a magnificant display of Jim’s award winning panel at our meeting and applaud his excellent achievements! Congratulations Jim!



The monthly theme for March was EYE(S) in the monthly and the Quarterly was OPEN COLOUR. We certainly got an amazing variety of images to choose from. It was all about the animals in the monthly competition! Congratulations to Mary Herlihy taking 1st place with ‘Cat’s Eyes’,

Last month Kieran Russell gave us a fantastic slideshow of images he captured on our trip to Connemarra last autumn. He took us through his process in selecting his view point, capturing the image and finally processing it to his own style. It was a very informative and insightful presentation. Apart from that Kieran has an amazing collection of black/white photos of Connemarra and the Copper Coast that you should see to appreciate. Take a look at his web page for a real treat!

Thanks a million to Bernadette Blaney who gave us a tour around Dubai with her vibrant collection of images this month.  Accompaning her collection of photos of Suk traders and their wares to archectural masterpieces was her entertaining stories regaling her trip. It is a destination firmly on the itinirary as a result of Bernie’s presentation. Thanks Bernie we enjoyed your showpiece.


The theme for February was FOG/MIST and lately there has been no shortage of either! We got great images from members and had a difficult task choosing a favourite. Congratulations to our new member Ingalill Bergman who took first place in her first competition entry with ‘Lynch Monument Loop’, 2nd and 3rd place were awarded to John Murphy with ‘Lone Tree’ and ‘Pacific Lighthouse’ respectively. There is no such thing as bad weather as sometimes the misty foggy conditions lend themselves to help create beautiful atmospheric images! So coat on next time and get out there and enjoy our amazing world!

The monthly theme for March is EYE(S) and the Quarterly is OPEN COLOUR. We are expecting some fantastic creations for these themes also.
