    Methodist Church, Newbury Street, Wantage, OX12 8DA

    Tonight Wantage Camera Club welcomes Martin Cooper who will talk to us about his photography. These days Martin tends to describe himself as a landscape photographer as he loves the British countryside and hopes to convey this through his images. Tonight's talk is therefore mainly landscape based, and covers three separate aspects; colour, mono, and impressionist work. This promises to be an evening of landscapes with a difference.

    For a preview of Martin's work please see https://www.martincooperphotography.com/.
    For more information about the club's programme see http://wantagecameraclub.co.uk/.

    All visitors very welcome; doors open at 7 pm. Please note: the fee for this talk is £3.
