The 2017/2018 season begins on wednesday 6th september

If you are looking for a Camera Club to join then why not come along on the 6th September. There are about 35 to 40 of us of all ages with a wide range of abilities and we offer an informal, friendly and supportive environment for photographers at all levels of experience. The club's imaginative programme of activities and events includes practical 'hands-on' sessions, internal competitions, and visits from guest speakers with knowledge and expertise in a wide range of fields. It's the chairman's evening on the 6th and a chance to catch up after the summer break. Do feel welcome to come along. See more details on the Programme page. 



This week there was another well organised and well attended event as part of the MCC Summer Programme.   Our hosts, The Friends of Sheffield Botanical Gardens, provided a well informed and entertaining opportunity to learn about the history of the Gardens and Greenhouse.  Members participated in a 90 minute guided tour led by Kate and supported by two other volunteers. There were plenty of opportunities to take photographs and ask questions about the flora and fauna throughout the grounds.  After the visit, several members retired to the local pub to socialise and enjoy a meal together.  Our thanks must go to Sheffield Botanical team for a most enjoyable evening and opportunity to practice our photographic technical skills. Thanks to Colin, David L and Mike P for the images below.

visit to the aeropark, east midlands airport

An interesting visit even if the weather meant that, at one stage, we had to shelter from the rain in a Nimrod Aircraft! A great opportunity for some unusual shots. Here are some from Bob and Mike P.
