A Shot in the Dark

March 29, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

A brief sojourn away from things Apple on 29 March, when NMUG Board member Mike Kwasniak discusses his work as a theatre photographer, and shares some of his images, recorded in theatres in the UK over the past 40 years.

In 1984 Mike worked in marketing in a theatre close to his home in East Anglia, where management, who already knew of his work as an avid amateur photographer, generously offered him the opportunity to photograph one of their productions. Four years later he left the marketing department to pursue a career as a freelance photographer.

Three years ago, Covid struck and all theatres closed as the world entered lockdown. Mike used the opportunity to trawl through his vast collection of images and assemble a collection that would ultimately result in him receiving a Fellowship of the internationally recognised Royal Photographic Society. In his presentation he will describe the process of reducing thousands of images to a panel of just twenty one, and the procedures involved in meeting the exacting standards demanded by the RPS.
