u3a - Guildford u3a member John Walmsley discusses photography

A member of Guildford u3a has an upcoming talk with The Royal Photographic Society about his career spanning more than 50 years as a freelance photographer.

Guildford u3a member John Walmsley has been a freelance documentary photographer since leaving art school in 1968. His talk to the Royal Photographic Society on 29 April will cover how he has managed to have a successful career as a freelancer, and is open to all.

John says, ‘I have always loved photographing the everyday, ordinary stuff that I’m interested in.  My advice is to go for the feeling and forget about the f-stops and apertures.’

John is an example of the amazing talent across the u3a movement. He is our case study in our January newsletter. Read that here and sign up on the newsletter page
