New Programme for 2022-2023

Our new programme of activities for the coming season has almost been decided and is now available on our website via the link to our Programme.
We have a couple of practical sessions to help you get off the Auto setting; sessions on image composition, Lightroom processing using the latest filters, Mounting your images, and Selling photographic product. This is in addition to our usual 4 internal competitions with external judging, 2 external inter-club competitions, our Christmas quiz and external speaker presentations.

We are very fortunate to have secured a presentation by Tim Jones of Fotospeed at our new venue on November 9th. As well as demonstrating Fotospeed products, including printing, Tim will present 15 lucky members with A3 prints of their own images on quality Fotospeed paper. This offer will be limited to the first 15 members to provide an image when the call goes out. Members must attend to collect their print. Fotospeed product will also be available to purchase at a discount.

Another presentation, later in our season, will be by local professional photographer Graham Hiscock. Graham and his wife, Trixie, run two photographic businesses, Camelot Photographic and Studio H in Wincanton.    

If you are considering joining a photgraphic club then do have a look at what we offer and get in touch. You can always give us a try without commitment. We look forward to a great season and a new venue.


Hey Nunney Nunney

August 5th and 10 of our intrepid members met at Nunney Castle for a very pleasant evening taking photos of this little gem hidden away in the village of Nunney. A lovely evening was had by all but the weather was against us for taking astro photos. Watch this space for another opportunity to meet up.
