We have a monthly cycle of meetings:

1st Wednesday:  Speaker (Guest photographer or internal speaker)

2nd Wednesday:  Monthly competition, Projected Digital Image or mounted prints, some with themes (see details by date below)

3rd Wednesday:  Practical activity at the club or trip out to a location (generally in the summer)

4th Wednesday:  Technical session (including imaging software) or image appraisal

5th Wednesday (when there is one): social activity like a buffet or quiz.

Note however that during the current Covid-19 situation, our meetings will be e-meetings using Zoom.  Please see members’ email or use the Contact form to obtain information on how to access these e-meetings.

Celebrity Lectures for 2020

We have regular visits from guest lecturers who are always popular and give us an opportunity to see the work of other excellent photographers and to ask questions about how they achieve their specialised work.  You can see more details on this page.  Further speakers for future dates are being arranged.
