The Photography group meets every 2 months in members' houses, and the emphasis is  on friendly competitions on varied subjects, plus sharing skills and experience with each other, as well as occasional photoshoots/practical projects.

The only things required are an interest in getting the best out of your digital camera and the photographs it can take. We share our photographs by email - and we can show you how to do that if necessary.

So please come and join us.
