A reminder please check the regional website for cancellations. It is important you let us know if you are attending. If we do not get many responses the event might be cancelled this is due to cost. Most field trips are free and funded by the region unless it is an unusual special!
Our region takes in Devon and Cornwall and we do try to cover all parts of the area on photographic trips. With a large variety of coast, moorland and tourist areas we have much to keep us busy photographically.
We arrange field trips throughout the summer months, interspersed with an annual after Christmas get together outside somewhere in early January which usually ends up with a convivial lunch in a pub somewhere. Throughout the autumn/winter period speakers are arranged along with Distinctions Advisory days, lectures and we are now building a relationship with the University of Plymouth where we use their facilities to host a keynote speaker. In addition members of the committee are prepared to visit camera clubs to talk about the Distinctions which are available through the Society.
Another event which has become an annual date is a weekend away in our own area, or just outside. This usually takes place in February and will typically be a Friday night get together, a guided field trip on the Saturday with a local speaker on the Saturday evening, Sunday morning the group usually spend time in the area making images before heading for home on Sunday afternoons.
We do appreciate members suggesting areas for field trips and even better leading these if local knowledge will help the group to find the photogenic spots, please contact our Regional Organiser, Jenny Leathes, with your thoughts.
Please see the events page to find dates and preferably advise Jenny if you intend to join as it is useful to have an idea of numbers, but please do contact a committee member if you need any further help or advice.
The region also runs 3 travelling print folios, one of which is purely mono, and if anyone is interested in joining, please contact Margaret Hocking, contact details are on the Committee page, for further information.
