Barry Mead FRPS, EFIAP/d1, MPAGB, APAGB was our first speaker of the month with his presentation 'The Windmills of your Mind'. Barry first became involved with photography while studying Fine Art and during his early years as an art teacher it became a consuming passion. He became a Fellow of the RPS in 1990 and was awarded the Fenton Medal along with RPS Honorary Membership, but this is only a small part of his impressive list of photographic awards and qualifications that he has amassed. Not only does he cover a wide range of subjects from wildlife, sports, and landscapes he is a great believer in experimenting and exploring new techniques in the creative side of photography and so the artistic element features strongly in his work. We had a thoroughly entertaining evening and were treated to an array of Barry's award winning images -- as a 'windmill' keeps on turning so does Barry's creative imagination!
