NEMPF Annual Exhibition Reminder 2015

This is a reminder that submissions for the NEMPF Annual Exhibition will need to be ready for early October.

So far we do not any specific information from the North and East Midlands Photographic Federation (NEMPF) about this year’s details. However, we do know from previous years that entries will involve prints, digital images and usually a panel of 4 prints. Mounts must be of a size 400 mm x 500 mm.

I know this is an early reminder, but this gives you time to think if and what work you would like to submit for NEMPF. I will remind you when the season starts and when we have more information from the Federation as to what the rules and categories are for this year.

Peak District Field Trip and Panoramic Workshop Thursday 25th June

This trip to the Peak District will allow members to concentrate on Landscape and nature photography, along with the opportunity for a practical lesson in Panoramic photography. The trip will initially go to Baslow Edge, above Calver and Baslow and then if time and light permits move onto either Arbor Low or Chatsworth House Park.

Suggest you bring clothing suitable for the walk in the dales, including strong footwear and waterproofs ) along with a your usual camera gear and a tripod if you have one.  The route taken will be less than 1.5 miles of level moorland.

The plan will be to car share from Castle Square at Melbourne, leaving around 18:00 to arrive at Curbar Gap National Trust Car Park at 7pm  ( Map Ref: SK 261 747. Being in a the middle of nowhere, it does not have a post code I am afraid)  These are the driving instructions from the National Trust

By car: From the M1 junction 29, follow the A617 to Chesterfield, then take the A619 to Baslow and turn north on the A623. Turn right at the Bridge Inn at Calver and then turn first right again through Curbar village. The car park is at the top of the hill

There is a heard of deer in the area, but you cannot always guarantee to encounter them, as they range over a very wide moorland area.

If you are planning to attend, please email Paul Cooper to let him know you are coming. The contact number on the night will be 07534 941950
