An evening tour with Mike Sheil as guide

Friday 12th September, 6.30pm for 7.00pm start

Open-air exhibition, St James's Park, opposite Horse Guards Parade

An interactive workshop arranged by Stephen Coe -

Like landscapes and unsure if you'd like battlefields? So was I until I spent a few minutes with Mike Sheil explaining his passion for these landscape subjects which are much changed from 1914-18. I must say Mike convinced me. 

I would never have guessed how interesting this project became for him, and I think you too will find it fascinating. If you can join us for this special workshop/guided tour – the man himself will be telling how this vast project took over his life and even changed his career.  It's a show celebrating the greater peace - beyond any war.

Mike will be returning from the actual battlefields for this AOP workshop/tour on Friday 12th September, join him to catch the spirit of the unusually poignant atmospheres of these historic landscapes now at peace. This workshop is timed not to eat into your working week and I hope to see you there?  Come in plenty of time from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start, which is conveniently after the congestion charge, especially those driving in from out of town we'd like to see. Bring a friend - or drive in - with another member you may know of on the way. 

SO, one for the diary - there can be no better way to see this show - than with the creator - and maybe join some of us afterwards for a drink or meal  - probably at the "Inn the Park" or somewhere nearby.

Will everyone interested please e-mail me via the List, Re. Evening tour with Mike Sheil, and/or reserve their place via Eventbrite -

Member Workshop, Summer Drinks and World Cup

We are delighted to announce that the first of our new workshops for AOP members will take place at Holborn Studios on Tuesday 8th July from 3pm.

An interactive format, hosted by Stephen Coe (Founding AOP Member) and Steve Knight (AOP Chair), featuring AOP members Norman Childs and Clive Boursnell - who will both show their work and engage in informal discussions, around the unexpected changes in their extensive careers in photography.

We expect around 45 minutes for each talk with extra time for a Q&A whenever desired.

Mid-session - tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available.

3pm: Norman Childs - ACHIEVABLE GOLD:
Presentation & discussion on planning new goals in changing conditions.

4.30pm: Clive Boursnell - A PASSION FOR PROJECTS:
Recording Opera or Recreating historic gardens for the printed page.

When discussions in the studio conclude, we will move to the outside deck area (weather permitting) at the Commissary bar & restaurant from 6pm for an opportunity to catch up with members over a beer and a burger. If any members cannot attend the talks then please do try to attend the drinks as this will be a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet new friends and see the AOP’s canalside home in Islington.

At 9pm there will be a live screening of one of the World Cup semi-finals, an ideal way to round-off a great event!

This workshop is free to attend, however you will need to reserve a ticket. To book your place, please go to our Eventbrite page - link
