Calling all budding (and seasoned) photographers !

Are there any keen amateur photographers out there? Want to improve and share your photography skills in a friendly environment? If so, i am looking at setting up a local photo group. The following are some initial ideas around what the Group would/might/could do :

  • Share Information, Experience and Tips for Better Photography
  • Organise Local Photo Walks and visits to sites of interest
  • Invite Guest Speakers / Organise ‘Show and Tell’ Sessions
  • Create a Gallery of Local Interest Photos (show them on the website or maybe even publish a book!)
  • Help other local groups and clubs by doing some pics for them
  • Discuss Equipment and Techniques, web resources, software etc.
  • Organise Competitions and Photo Challenges
  • Share Equipment
  • Have fun !

I’d expect to meet around once a month, maybe slightly more frequently in the summer months.

If you are interested drop me an email : amfawcett@gmail.com or give me a call on (01904) 468020

If we can get at least half a dozen together we’ll give it a go !
