Before the start of last Thursdays (09/07/15) there was a committee meeting held to discuss a couple of issues brought to the club in the last few weeks.
Firstly the donation from the council was raised and it was agreed to spend the money on new gear for the club. Mainly computer equipment. It has not been decided on what gear to go for, but will be raised at the next meeting.
The second point of becoming the official photographers for Ashignton Town Council was brought to the table. The committee agreed this would be too good of an opportunity to miss and have agreed to do it. With the agreement will come a £300 retainer for the club. All we need now is a list of photographers who are willing to take part.
A suggestion for use of the retainer was raised for use of the funds. It was suggested we could get Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom CC for the new computer equipment, but this is still open to suggestion. If you have any other ideas then please bring them forward.
As for the meeting, I think it was a successful night with some new members getting experience photographing a model with a lighting set up. Please remember to pass on any photos to the model as she took the time to come to the meeting and posed for free. All we ask is members pass on photos the model to help them build portfolios.
Hope to see you all next week.
