The Guild Photo Archive

 

Over the last six months David Cowling has been editing and cataloguing the, literally thousands, of photographs that Rob Griffin has taken at recent conferences. Along with other photos from Jock Miller etc we now have an archive going back to 2006. Julia Riddington has been creating the software to create a database of these images and all guild members can now search though it by going into the members area of the website and clicking on “Archive” in the member’s menu.
 
The first time you do this a page will probably load that invites you to install Microsoft Silverlight. This is needed to run the software. Following the instructions to install it shouldn’t take long and the installation only needs to be done once. After that, on future visits to the archive, the start page should appear after a few seconds and you can then begin searching.
 
Details of how to search through and view both the images and the information we have about them can be found by clicking on the link below:
 
 
At the moment, you will come across images where the maker is listed as unknown and also other gaps in the “Image Information” for each photo. This is where we hope you can help. For example, if it’s one of your own pieces in the photo please let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and David will then be able to update the information. Please also let David know if you find separate images that should be grouped or linked together because they are all the same or are part of a set.
