SUNDAY 13th NOVEMBER 2016 – 11:00am – 3pm

Millennium Memorial Hall, THE HALL WAY, LITTLETON,


This free event will take place immediately following the Southern Region AGM. 

Everyone agrees that there are too few opportunities to meet with our fellow members and just enjoy each other’s photography.  We have therefore organised a free informal event where you can come along, meet others and do just that. This will be a wonderful opportunity to share your photography with each other, for all of us to learn what inspires our photography and perhaps share our knowledge with the group.

You will be able to display examples of your work in whatever medium you want; prints, digital images or photobooks and, if you wish, for you to talk about your photographic interest and experience. We would love to hear what projects you are up to and what personal goals you have planned for the rest of 2016 and into 2017!

  • Have you recently been on a travel expedition? 
  • Bought some new kit you want to show off or ask others advice on how to use it?
  • Do you have knowledge in a specialist area of photography and what to tell us about it?

We will invite the audience to take part in an interactive question & answer session about your photography. This is not a critique day nor are we here to judge or give formal advice on distinctions. We hope however that we will stimulate an exchange of views and experience of our photography in a relaxed and informal environment.  You may wish to come along to share your work, but not wish to address the audience directly.  That is also fine, we shall be pleased to welcome you.

We will be pleased to also welcome President, Walter Benzie HonFRPS who will also give a talk about his photography and his insight into the future development of the society.
