Our club has members with a range of technical levels and styles. There’s the studio and portrait types, the 50mm fanatics, the landscapers and the people who take photos of their dogs. Whether you’re new to photography or a seasoned pro, there is always something new to learn from, or even to show others. The club practical nights cover a wide range of subjects both technical and hands on, as well as outings that allow you to practice your newly learnt skills.
We are very lucky to be situated in a beautifully restored building dating back to 1893 that offers a great deal of creative inspiration it’s architecture both inside and out. The surrounding alleyways are great for grunge, street or graffiti scenery. Practical sessions and club outings provide plenty of opportunities to shoot a wide range of subjects and locations.

Q: What if my camera isn’t a whizz-bang brand / the latest model DSLR?
A: It doesn’t matter. While a Digital SLR will open your creative options up more than a simple point-and-shoot camera, there is still much to learn about the art of taking a great photo. A lot of people like to come and learn the basics prior to upgrading or maybe are being pressured to learn how to use the new toy. It’s all good.
