Meet the OUTLAW – Nick Pearce

Hi this is Nick,

As a teenager in Norfolk, I started with a Zenit 35mm camera which I used at several Mildenhall airshows. After one show, taking 100 images, that following 35mm processing came out as small dots in a big sky, I invested in a Tamron zoom lens.

I have had an interest in photography from adolescence and always liked to take along one of those tiny single use cameras on holidays with friends; that I had to send away to get my prints.

September 2023 4th Print Competition

The fourth print competition of the year was held on Thursday 28th September at St James church Hall the home of the Nottingham Outlaws. The print competition started back in March 2023 and is run on a bi-monthly basis. Lois Webb currently holds the top position in the Outlaw print league table. 

The judge for this round of the competition was Alan Young who is a member of Rolls Royce (Derby) Photographic Society. Alan stated that he liked images that told a story, had balance and contained elements that added interest and enhanced the image. There were two categories for Alan to judge, the Open category and the Themed which in this instance was “Portraits (two generations or more)”. In total there were 20 entries in the open and 18 in the themed.

Face paint project by Lester Woodward

The idea started whilst talking to Nina the owner of the Connect Cafe in Netherfield, she showed me an article in the Guardian about people painting their faces to avoid automatic camera face recognition and thought it would make an interesting photographic project.  We found it fascinating and decided to create a project where people paint their faces not to avoid recognition, but to help others understand what they want to express about themselves.
