Our Programme

Our monthly meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (October to June) at the Burpham Village Hall, Burpham Lane, Burpham, Guildford GU4 7LP between 14.00hrs & 16.00hrs.

The usual meeting format will be a short ‘tutorial’, sometimes with guided ‘hands on’ practice, or presentation, followed by a review of photographs submitted as part of the members gallery or from our ‘photoshoot excursions’. We even find time for a tea break and chat !!

Our presenters include our more experienced club members as well as external sources. We encourage members to contribute to our programmes and we run periodic ‘photo assignments’ as well as an annual ‘fun’ photo competition.

Our current programme is set out below, if you would like further details just contact us, or join us and become part of the group. New members are very welcome.

Submission date for all galleries for all meetings is the Sunday before the meeting each month.
