Programme of Events

Our annual programme of events explores various digital photographic and imaging techniques. We run hands-on workshops where new photographers can learn and gain experience.

Please Note: On 16th March 2020, members made the decision to pause the weekly Monday meetings until further notice due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, therefore, until the current restrictions are lifted, Online meetings will be held at 8:00pm every Monday using Zoom software (Instructions for connecting and the current meeting ID have been distributed to all members, if you have not received these, please use the contact us page) .
