What to expect
Each club night is on a Thursday evening with the doors opening at 7pm. The meetings officially start at 7:30pm and run until 9pm. Before the start you will be greeted by a member of the club, normally the chairman, and will have a little chat, explaining various aspects of the club. This is also a perfect time to ask any questions you may have if not already answered on this site. Each night we have something different on during the competition/winter season. From presentations by photographers, portrait/still life practical nights, to competition judging results, and tutorials on Photoshop and Lightroom.
Each meeting is started off with announcements from the chairman and the raffle draw. The raffle is voluntary and costs £1 to enter.
Our members are from a wide range of disciplines and levels of expertise. From novice to professional. All members are willing to help if you have any questions on anything photography related.
Each year we have a chairman’s night where the chairman will pick a guest speaker and a buffet is laid out for the members to enjoy. At the end of the competition/winter season we have out annual general meeting where all members get a say in how the club is run. We also have a presentation meal, where all members are welcome, which trophies and certificates are handed out to all those that placed in the various competitions through the season.
