This season is bigger than ever. In addition to our normal programme we are introducing practical Tuesdays. The last Tuesday of each month will allow members to share their secrets on lighting setups, photoshop tricks, locations, camera techniques etc. You can also ask questions on any topic and the members will pool their knowledge and try to help you with your specific issue.

Our competitions this years will follow the established format of six open and two set subject competitions. As usual we will also have Photograph of the Year and the Brian Hodgson Tropy. There are also more informal competitions like Shoot a Theme and Lucky Dip. And yes our popular let us complain about the judge/review the last competition evenings will continue.

The guest speakers this season will cover a wide gamut of topics. From flower photography to Industrial landscape photography, with pit-stops like How to progress from Amateur to Professional, and Dynamic Composition in Street Photography along the way. 

And there is more, see the full programme is available on the website.

If you want to try before you buy, we will be offering guest memberships which will allow you to access the next two meetings from when you sign up.

The new season starts on September 10th with Carol McNiven Young’s (FRPS EFIAP CPAGB BPE4*) talk on “Creative Studio Portraiture”. On September 17th we will have a talk by Ashley Franklin ARPS, ABPPA, APAGB on how he went from amateur snapper to offering a wide spectrum of professional services.

All meetings will be via zoom. There is a chance we will return to the hall after Christmas but you will still be able to join in via zoom.

I hope you consider joining us again this year as a member.
