It is with deep sadness that the Carlow Photographic Society members were informed of the passing of our fellow club member Austin Kinsella yesterday. Austin has been a member of the CPS since the very beginning, 2003, and actively a huge part of the club. Chairperson for many years to being on our current committee to date.
A true gentleman, a man with an in-depth technical mind that was a huge asset to our club over the years. Such a love of photography that many a member gained from his ever sharing knowledge and encouragement over the years. A giving man, a man with a sense of humour that could take awhile to understand, but, when you finally grasped his wit, you ended up sharing many a laugh with him.
Austin, thank you for everything you brought to the club, a friend to so many, a name that will be forever talked about and fondly remembered, a true character, forever in our hearts.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Kinsella family at this sad time.

Reposing at his home in Cloydagh, Carlow (Eircode R93 C6C4) from 3pm on Saturday and concluding with prayers at 8pm. Funeral Mass on Sunday at 12noon in St. Patrick’s Church, Newtown, Co. Carlow Eircode R21 P206. Burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetery. Family flowers only, donations in lieu to the Irish Cancer Society and Carlow/Kilkenny Home Care Team.

A big shout out to one of our newest members Philip Reilly, Philip joined Carlow photographic society this year and is now sharing beautiful images with the members of the club. Here is a little bit about Philip and some of his images.

I have been interested in photography for over thirty years now starting with SLR film cameras and moving to digital in 2004. Despite this being my main hobby I have never owned a digital SLR camera preferring bridge cameras. This is because I do a lot of walking and cycling and these activities do not encourage you to bring a bag of lenses and other paraphernalia. At the moment I am using the Sony RX10 M3. I am mainly interested in landscape and wildlife photography. With early retirement at the end of October I intend giving my favourite hobby much more time so this may lead me to upgrade my equipment if necessity dictates. Here are three of my favourite older images.

On behalf of all members of the Carlow Photographic Society, we would like to extend a huge thank you to Julie Corcoran AIPF who gave such an inspirational presentation of her amazing works of art to members last night. Julie showcased stunning creative photography and was so giving of her knowledge and skills, encouraging to all throughout.

Some of the CPS members would have had the privilege of displaying her successful A panel for the IPF Distinction Sitting held in Carlow in September 2017 🌟

We look forward to welcoming her back in the near future for a workshop, thanks again for a great night 💫

Members of Carlow Photographic Society are very excited to be welcoming Julie Corcoran AIPF to our club for a presentation this Wednesday night.
Julie got her Irish Photographic Federation Associateship in Carlow in September 2017 and we look forward to seeing her beautiful images and hearing all about her growing talent to date.
Definitely going to be a great night 💫

A Huge Thank You goes out to Graphic Artist Martin Millar who gave members of the CPS a wonderful presentation and demonstration of his stunning works of art today.
They were amazing to view, to watch and hear how his creative mind (and musical influences) composed these. Inspiring and he certainly got the creatives juices flowing for members, many thanks Martin for a great day.
