Supporting local photography since 1923

8 Feb 2022 – Tony Smith

WPS Tony Smith – Sacred Waters

The Projects Group evening originally scheduled for 8 February has been postponed so that we can hold it in the venue formerly known as the Discovery Centre.

Instead, we have a real treat in store at the Hampshire Record Office when Tony Smith gives a talk on Sacred Waters.

Sacred Waters

According to Tony’s website

Sacred Waters is possibly the most comprehensive Digital Presentation account of Hindu Festivals available today.

The presentation will be peppered with interesting facts, anecdotes and experiences.

These are not holiday or travel photographs. Tony travelled to India specifically to record these events, from the inside amongst the pilgrims – with no apparent concern for his equipment.

8 Feb 2022 – Tony Smith ARPS DPAGB

Tony has been making a huge contribution to WPS for many years through his knowledgeable comments on Facebook and the quality of his images, mainly of people, taken in exotic locations including India, Vietnam, Cuba and Notting Hill.

When lockdown hit and travel was curtailed, Tony created some interesting and amusing lockdown selfies.

Tony achieved his ARPS with the 2009 panel shown below.

When smartphone photography became “a thing”, Tony established the popular WPS Smartphone Group. This ran for a few years until smartphone photography became so mainstream that a separate group wasn’t really needed.
