  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. Stokes - yes it is a class place and amboseili too. Im planning a return trip for january next year if i can manage it. I would love to spend 10 days in the Masai Mara and serengeti this time instead of just 4 days.

    what they said ... also the eyes look a bit soft on the first one, but that could be the crappy screen on my work laptop.

    (incidentally i read the title first time as 'lions in tesco' :LOL: )

    Cheers Dean. Yea loads of images that i am trying to get time to sort through. There is some on the birds section already.
    Kenyaitis is true, unfortunately we missed out on cheetah and leopard when we were there so that is my perfect excuse to have to go back;)
