On 9 October, Kevin Sawford, professional photographer held our first lecture on ‘Nature Photography’ and presented members with various ways and tips on how to make good photographs inspirational.

On 23 October, our first Open competition was judged by Nick Akers -ARPS. We had a great evening and a big ‘thank you’ to Nick for his constructive critiques, delivered with humour.  A very high scoring evening with congratulations to:
