English golfer Rebecca Hudson was horrified to find her golf ball lying within a dead branch from a palm tree next to the tenth green at Selborne in the final round of the SA Women’s Open. And a strong wind was blowing the branch about, so she was faced with a moving ball. When the branch stopped moving, a rules official gave her the bad news: she must play the ball as it lies, or deem it unplayable and take a penalty drop.

Natural objects such as dead branches are loose impediments,

While many will study at university, this type of heavily structured learning isn’t for everyone. With this in mind, the Open College of the Arts (OCA) provides a flexible online/distance-learning course that can be started at any time of the year.

Due to its modular structure, units can be studied for personal fulfilment, or with the aim of collecting credits towards a final degree.

There are three levels to the course: Level 1 introduces


How to become a workshop tutor.

Guiding budding photographers on their path to better images is no easy task. We talk to three expert tutors to see what it takes…

They say that those who can’t do, teach. Well, in the world of photography that sentiment falls flat. Here, those who teach must not only be able to do, but must also have a heightened awareness of the technical aspects of what they’re doing. Nothing requires greater knowledge of a subject than passing that knowledge on to an eager group of invested learners armed with equipment, a desire to see results and an arsenal of questions.

We found a food photography workshop in the heart of London for one lucky DP reader to enjoy

Perfectly positioned on London’s hustling and bustling Oxford Street, the London School of Photography runs a tantalising assortment of full and part-time courses throughout the year.

Craig Roberts has been a professional landscape and travel photographer for more than 15 years, publishing articles in a wide range of magazines.

Chivenor Changes

Mike Pooler looks at the major changes recently introduced in the RAF’s fast jet training syllabus, and how they effect RAF Chivenor in particular.

THESE FIRST FEW years of the decade are seeing some major changes at one of the RAF’s most popular stations.
