Academy award-winning cinematographer to visit Tweed

WORLD renowned photographer, cinematographer, inventor, artist and conservationist Dr Jim Frazier will be the guest speaker at next week's Photo Arts Club Tweed meeting.

Dr Frazier, who has enjoyed an extensive career, is best known for inventing the Frazier Lens System which revolutionised the film industry and bedazzled Hollywood, where leading filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg and James Cameron, queued to use it.

They are featured in private collections around the world including those of Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton.
