We have received a grant from the Big Lottery Fund for equipment for our organisation.
About the Group
Anyone is welcome to join us. Our monthly charge is £2 which covers the room cost with a little extra for ‘specials’.
We have already started to look at our outings for 2017 with visits to such places as Felley Priory and Whatton Gardens for the spring flowers. Our outings are by car-share. The last one we did was to Watermead at Leicester, a place we have all driven by many times but most never visited! We were blessed with good photographic weather and enjoyed the afternoon (see image right).The current membership of the Group has members with long experience of photography, especially in the club world. Some are members of Keyworth Camera Club and of exhibiting groups in the East Midlands and West Yorkshire. Group Leader, Howard Fisher, is Secretary of the Royal Photographic Society Audio-Visual Group.
Most members, however, come along to the Group to enjoy their photography regardless of the type of camera they use – whether the simpler ‘point and shoot’ camera or the more sophisticated type.
We are not photographic equipment or computer orientated beyond what we need to make our photographs.
The Group is very friendly and members help each other with any problems and, most importantly, support and encourage each other to achieve what they want in their photography, be it self-expression or making nicer family and holiday images.
