NEXT MEETING …    ALL THIS SEASONS MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED.

 

All meetings (including End-of-Year AGM in May) are cancelled.  Our new 2020-2021 season traditionally starts in September each year but may be earlier or later depending on events.  Please keep an eye on our website for latest news and plans (including any web-based projects/activities during the current crisis).   

 

We hope to reschedule some missed meetings for later in the year and to hold our Annual Exhibition later this year.  We hope to be able to offer one or two activities via the internet.  We will keep members and potential new members informed via email and on the website.

 

POTENTIAL NEW MEMBERS…
If you think you might be interested in joining our friendly club once this covid-19 crisis is over, please contact us by email, phone or web form now.  We can then include you in our plans for when life gets closer back to normal.  We cater for all levels – beginners to very advanced/professional.

Shaftesbury’s friendly club for everyone with an interest in photography and cameras.

We meet two or three times a month during the winter season (Sept to May) at the Royal British Legion Hall in Coppice Street and prospective new members are always very welcome.  Please register your interest by emailing us so we can keep you up to date with our news and activities.

Our programme includes talks, practical hands-on sessions, plus a few friendly internal and inter-club competitions featuring projected digital images (so you don’t have to worry about printing or mounting your shots) as well as traditional mounted prints.  We also have an annual Print Exhibition.

We have additional workshops to help with managing and editing your photos, and preparing them to share with us or your friends, or for competitions.   All  to help us learn more about the art and latest technology of making better photographs.  It doesn’t matter whether you use a small compact camera or a big single lens reflex, and we’re regularly seeing images taken with a smartphone!

We are open to all, so do please contact us.    You are welcome to attend up to two of our meetings free before becoming a member.  Our subscription is just £30 per member for a full Season, with a reduction if you join in the latter part of the Season.  Occasional visitors are also welcome for a nominal fee of £3 per meeting, subject to a maximum of three such meetings during a Season.”
