It’s not long now until the start of the new season at Stratford Photo Group. We hope you have had a happy and productive summer out with your camera.
Our first meeting is on 5th September and you get a chance to show what you’ve been up to, please bring up to 6 images on a usb stick and you can tell us all about them.
The workshop on 12th September, is a new adventure for SPG, giving new and existing members the opportunity to bring their camera to the club and get some advice on settings from experienced members. There’ll also be information about the club and this year’s programme.
This season we will be bringing some new and exciting speakers to SPG, starting with Harish Chavda, on 19th September, a professional sports photographer from Birmingham. Harish will show some of his images from athletics, boxing, equestrian, rugby, water sports etc. and from venues including the Olympics. He will also give some hints and tips on how you can improve your sports photography.
Following on from the successful visit to Permajet last March, you will have the opportunity to visit Lumejet on 7th November. For those who attend not only will you get an introduction to their innovative and high quality L.type printing process and a visit around their factory, but also a free personal print (of one of your images) printed up to A3 size.
We will continue to have the usual mix of fortnightly workshops at Wellesbourne (Thursday afternoons) and Merit competitions, with the first one starting in October.
This year we will have a new Christmas celebration evening (19th December) which will include a new themed image event. We’ll publish more details of this soon.
So, whether you are a potential new member or a returner from last year we look forward to welcoming you to SPG starting on Tuesday 5th September at Bishopton Community Centre.
