The Club was founded in 1984 and aims to encourage and develop the photographic skills of it’s members. We meet at the Weston Building within the Harper Adams University complex at 7.30pm every Tuesday evening from October to July. Check Programme as dates and time may differ during Covid-19.
We have a full programme of competitions, workshops & practical evenings, visiting speakers, social evenings and other events.
At present we have about 80 members from the Telford & Wrekin area, with some members coming from Telford, Market Drayton, Gnosall and the surrounding villages. We cater for all levels of expertise from absolute beginner to experienced enthusiast. As part of the programme for encouraging our members to expand their photographic skills, we run Peer Review Groups and also have a Mentoring Programme.
The Mentoring Programme aims to team up those who want to take their photography a bit further, with one of the more experienced club members. The mentor can then advise on technical and photographic techniques and help develop the skills of the mentee.
The Peer Review Groups were formed to allow members to get informal comments and suggestions about their pictures from other members of the club. Groups of 8 – 10 members contribute their prints or digital files and these pass round the other group members for constructive comment.
