The President's Welcome
Welcome to members old and new, and to those just visiting our website to find out more about us; I hope it provides all the information you need to encourage you to come along and join us, whether as a member, potential member or visitor.
Non-members are very welcome to any of our Tuesday meetings (sub-groups and workshops are restricted to members only) for £4 per visit (max 4 visits per year) – simply turn up, sign-in and take a visitor badge. Those who subsequently join the Society will have these fees deducted from their joining fee. Full details about membership can be found under the Membership tab.
If you are new to photography and feel you don't know enough about the subject to join a club like ours, please think again! People are often surprised to learn that we have absolute beginners within our membership – and by that I mean those who may not yet even own a camera, or who have absolutely no idea how to use the one they have! You are not alone! Becoming a member of a society like ours offers you the opportunity to see inspirational photographs, find out how they are created, and learn from constructive critique of images. Guidance about camera equipment and techniques is available through our workshops and member-led activities, and just by chatting to other members in the break. You can't help but improve! I urge you to come along!
And for those of you who are already competent camera users, share your passion and knowledge with other like-minded folk. Whether your interest is sport, travel, people, landscapes, photo-journalism . . . in a society of our size there are always plenty of other enthusiasts to compare experiences with.
Our Membership pages offer much more detail about what our society has to offer – please take a look, and then please come to one of our meetings. You will be extremely welcome.
