About

The new season starts on Monday 2nd September and the programme for the new season can be found here. If you have never been before guests are welcome and there is no need to commit to joining if you do come along for a few meetings to try us out.

The start of a new season is an ideal time to come along, see what we are about and get an idea of if we are the club for you. As with other clubs in the MCPF ( Midland Counties Photographic Federation ) we are a ‘not for profit’ club. Many of our speakers are Nationally and even Internationally recognised speakers and judges. These aspirational presentations are backed up by our club member nights, practical nights and competitions.

For the competitions recognised judges from the PAGB ( Photographic Alliance of Great Britain ) pass their constructive critique of all of the images as well as ranking the top 7 images.

We try to provide a blend of both visual and practical inspiration and assistance to help members improve their photography. Last season there were images taken on a mobile ‘phone that were entered in the competitions. It isn’t about the equipment, it is about the image and the enjoyment. It doesn’t matter if your camera is your ‘phone, if it has interchangeable lenses or not, if it is new or old or if you use JPEG or raw. What matters is people enjoying the experience of moving their photography forward.
