Colin Sargent with Wildlife Photography concentrating on photographing wild life at night and how to photograph small mammals and John Widdows FRPS with The Story of Creation, Metamorphosis of Stardust and other images.

Also, the Macro Group of TCC led by John Bebbington FRPS presented an evening of their excellent images from the world of micro, macro and close up photography.
