Members Night, 4th January 18

We return for the seasonal break, to the first members night of the season. As normal this is open to the membership to make a short presentation on a subject of their choice.  This could be anything from your own audio-visual presentation, to a presentation on your favourite subject, to a talk on your favourite area of photography.    You might have something you want to understand more about, or skills you want to learn. We can always see if we can find someone to cover that area, given enough notice.

Your offers and suggestions would be appreciated to make this evening a success. Please contact Paul Cooper if you want to participate.

Swarkstone Exhibition 21st – 22nd October

We are coming up to the final exhibition of the year.  This is the first time we have exhibited at Swarkestone Garden Centre and we are hoping  that this will be a great success..

To ensure things run smoothly I am asking the membership for some help.  If you can give an hour of your time on either the Saturday or Sunday that would be wonderful, plus we need some help with setting up on Friday afternoon and taking down on Sunday afternoon. We won’t need to have more than one or two people at any one time as there isn’t a Tombola to run.  We have some members selling merchandise who will be there for most of the weekend.

Please can you let me know if you are available to help. My email is

9.00-10.00      
11.00-12.00      
12.00-1.00   Jennifer Z, John Z

‘What is Photography About.’ Paul O’Flanagan – Thursday 5th October

Paul O’Flanagan will be tackling one of those area that a times causes many questions for us, as we develop our skills as a photographer, namely  the craft of photography and  creativity. This seems to be an area that causes great anxiety due to misunderstanding.
