Howard Denner is a very keen amateur photographer and developed an aptitude for 'street photography'. He lectured to Photographic Societies and judged competitions including International Salons of Photography. In 1996 his passion for photography got the better of him and he took early retirement from the Civil Service to become a professional photographer. Since that time, he has been a press photographer specialising in live music, especially rock, blues, jazz and world music. He worked successfully with Retna Picture Agency (now part of Photoshot) and his photographs have been published in newspapers and magazines worldwide.
Olympus Ambassador Tesni Ward is a Wildlife and Nature photographer based in Sheffield. Tesni’s photographic journey began when she was given her first DSLR on holiday as a teenager, but it was in her early 20’s that Tesni began to give photography more attention. With upgraded equipment and a new thirst for photography, she would go out and explore the Peak District at the weekend, snapping away at anything she found to be visually appealing. It was however when she travelled to Alaska to photograph the famous coastal Brown Bears that everything really changed for her – being surrounded by ‘true’ wilderness, camping on a beach whilst surrounded by wolves, bears and all manner of other wild animals gave her the first real sense of freedom.
Tonight is one of the evenings throughout the season allocated to Activity,/Practical/Technique issues.
