Manningtree & District Photographic Society

A haven of peace, coffee and scones, in the Tendring District, can be found at Beth Chatto’s Garden in Elmstead Market. Members were pleased to join in this hands-on, outdoor session with colleagues from the Harwich & Dovercourt Camera Club, during the summer break. And again on another occasion a ‘Sunset Photograpy’ workshop, held at West Mersea, both ably led by their Club Chairman George Fossey.

Future meetings are as followed; Encouraging a Photographic Eye takes place on Thursday 12th October, Open Colour Competition on Thursday 26th October and Five Way Challenge (Harwich & Dovercourt Camera Club) on Monday 30th October. Their Autumn / Winter programme commenced in September and runs through to May 2018 comprising a series of Talks, Competitions and Practical sessions. Their friendly group includes members with a wide range of abilities, always willing to share their advice and experience.

They meet on Thursday evenings, twice monthly, at 7.30 pm at the St Johns Centre, Station Road in Manningtree. New Members are welcome to join (Subscription of £40) or may attend initially as a Visitor (£3).
