Aug 2019: The Society is pleased to announce that it has been approached by Ross Town Council, Create Ross, AONB and its partners to photograph the Gilpin Celebrations which start in 2020. We are going to produce a short film to show the journey that William Gilpin took down the River Wye in 1770 which denotes Ross as the birth of Tourism. Hopefully we will be able to find some canoes and ‘pilots’ to take a few of our members down the Wye to record this in video form. We have Wathen prints to work with where we will go and photograph locations on the Wye as they are today. There will be an Exhibition of work at a venue to be decided later in the year. It is hoped that our prints will be professionally produced which should enhance the Exhibition tremendously. We hope to also produce an AV of the trip down the river from Wilton Bridge to Chepstow. This will be a year long project where we hope all members will take part. Many events are planned during the coming year and we will be there to capture as many as possible. The Town council and Create Ross are building a brand new website to show the work that we contribute to the celebrations. We have also been asked to provide photographs of all events taking place in Ross from August 2019 - July 2020. So far, we have covered the Carnival, Ross does Pride, Olliefest and the Rowing Regatta. There is the Cider Festival, Hedgehog Festival and the Christmas Fayre also planned for this year.
