The 2017/2018 season will begin in October with Allan Green FRPS presenting another of his brilliant AV shows. Also, look out for an exhibition of club members print images in early September. The four club titles for next season are: Non-Captive Wild Animals, Food Photography, Fun and Tunnels/Corridors. Feel free to take up the challenge and join us with your responses to these titles. Maybe you are more inspired by landscape, portraiture or have a theme of your own that could be entered for the open digital competition. Remember, these days, good images can be taken on your phone!
