The meetings are held bi-monthly, normally on a Monday evening, starting at 7.30pm.
A small contribution is collected to cover the cost of hiring the meeting room.
We meet in the Days Inn Hotel at the north-bound Charnock Richard services, between junctions 27 and 28 of the M6.
Our next meeting, on 21 July 2014, finds us in the middle of the holiday season, so I thought we might try something a little more ambitious; something that combines landscape photography with street photography, with portraiture and travel photography and maybe a bit of architectural photography, all tied up in one neat theme. I refer, of course, to holiday photographs, or holiday snaps as they are sometimes derogatorily called. But I've never thought that holiday photography need be any less considered or less accomplished than any other kind. So if you've recently, or even not so recently, been on holiday or a journey or taken part in any kind of holiday event or adventure, and documented it to any degree (and why wouldn't you have?), bring along your snaps to our next meeting and let us all look at them. Preferably on stick or disc, please.
And lastly, please note that on Saturday, 08 November we will be holding a one-day workshop with Dave West. You will find details on our website and at http://davewestphotography.weebly.com . We held a similar, very successful workshop in 2010 with Colin Thomas, but in order to get it to work financially we needed to bring along a few paying guests. It will be the same this year, so please note the date in your diary and give some thought to who you might invite.
