The above winners photographs can be viewed o­n our website. 

There has been a noticeable increase in print entries, due to the digital ‘era’.  This is just a selection of our members work – some members still prefer slides to prints and vice versa.  (We at present have approximately 60 members)

 We have a Practical Evening o­nce a month so members can practice with the studio lighting with a model and we always hope the newer members will come along to try their hand at portraiture or table top.

After a very successful outing to Brugge o­n Saturday 24th October, Monday  (25th October)  will be a digital audio visual show presented by Denis Bridges a long-standing member of our club.  .   The following meeting o­n 1st November will be an illustrated talk o­n the ‘Field Techniques of Nature Photography’ by Robert Canis  ARPS. 

On Saturday 30th October the Kent County Photographic Association Bi-ennial Audio Visual Competition will be held at St. Mary’s Bay Camera Club.
