THE PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP

We are a happy band of photographers ranging from novice to experienced, and from quite young to getting on a bit in age.

English speakers predominate but there are always a few French speakers amongst us. More of each are always welcome.

  • We hold monthly competitions via the internet*, not usually by print. Marking is done on the internet by the members but the entries are re- shown at the meeting

  • There are also presentations on a variety of subjects.

  • Sometimes we have a practical evening.

So, if you would like help with using your new camera or would like to expand your photographic capabilities, or would just like to join a camera club – – – – come and join us!

* instructions on how to participate in the competitions can be found by clicking here.

Cost

Coming to our meetings is completely free. The only time there might be a cost is if we decide to do something as a group which entails a specific fee, such as going to a photographic exhibition; in that case all those attending would pay for themselves.
