About The Club

MEETINGS
We meet on Wednesday evenings between September and April at Worksop Cricket Club, Central Avenue, Worksop, a comfortable venue with bar facilities, car parking and wheelchair access.
Meetings start promptly at 7:30pm but you are welcome any time after 7:00pm which provides an opportunity to chat with other members before the meeting starts.

NEW MEMBERS
We welcome new members and provide a forum where anyone interested in photography can meet, learn from other enthusiasts and get more from the hobby. All levels of ability are welcome and you do not need an expensive, sophisticated camera, excellent pictures can be taken with the simplest equipment.
We appreciate that it can be daunting to join an established club so committee members are always on hand to answer any questions and introduce you to other members.

Please note that we are not a photographic school but new members should not be discouraged if they require assistance. No matter what aspect of photography we are sure to have someone among our members who can help – just tell us what you need and we will do our best.

PHOTOGRAPHIC/COMPUTER COURSES
We can advise on available courses, events etc. if you are interested.

PROGRAMME
Our programme is carefully planned and each season we try to provide something of interest to everyone including visiting speakers on a wide range of photographic subjects, competitions, social nights etc.

COMPETITIONS
Throughout the season we have a number of competitions, some just for club members, some against other local clubs and others at a national level. Whilst competitions are fun and an excellent way of improving your photography they are not compulsory and many of our members come along to listen to the talks, look at a wide variety of images and learn from seeing the work of more experienced photographers.

CLUB/MEMBER PARTICIPATION NIGHTS
Our programme features 3 such nights. These are intended to be informal evenings where members can socialise and share ideas. Sometimes we organise practical sessions where you can have a go at a variety of techniques.

OTHER ACTIVITIES
We try to organise occasional studio nights where you can have a go at photographing a model and learn something about lighting. However numbers are strictly limited (no more than 6 members per session) so you will need to let us know if you are interested in taking part.
When the club is closed during the summer months we may, if there is sufficient interest, organise weekday evening or weekend outings to locations of interest.

MENTORING
We have several very experienced members who advise on photographic and computer editing techniques. Also, if you have a specific camera or lens and need help we may be able to put you in contact with someone who has similar equipment and perhaps more experience. Additionally do let us know if you have a specific interest in any area of photography or image processing, or feel you have experience to offer. Finally, whatever your interest, query or problem please don’t be afraid to ask – we will do our best to help if we can.
