Guest Speaker - Mick Bourke 
We were delighted to welcome Galway Camera Club members Mick Bourke and GCC club chairperson Des Glynn to the meeting. After the tea break, Mick gave a very interesting and enjoyable presentation of his excellent photography. 
He showed examples of his work which ranged from portraits, documentary, macro, still life, night photography, and Landscapes, with some interesting anecdotes behind the images and also insights into the preparation and planning he carries out before going on a shoot.
