Local Camera Club Focusses on New Members

A popular local camera club has released details of a picture-perfect programme for the new season. Planned events for the 2017-18 season include talks from high-profile guest speakers and regular club competitions to help members improve their photography skills.

Tandridge Photographic Society (TPS), which meets each week in Godstone, is also looking to welcome new members to the club at the start of the season on Thursday 7th September. Sarah Bedwell, Honorary Secretary at TPS, said “Joining when we kick off the new season is a great idea as we put on a special Open Evening to welcome new members and discover what sort of photos they like to take.”

To help local photographers develop their skills, the club has planned a series of evening events for the coming season. Guest speakers will include Paul Sanders, former picture editor of The Times, and coastal adventurer and photographer Ken Scott. The club also organises friendly competitions where members’ photos are assessed by external judges who offer advice and suggestions for improvement.

Club Chairman, John Howard, commented “With today’s smartphones and digital cameras it’s never been easier to take good photos, but it takes practice and experience to take great pictures! That’s why we love welcoming new members to the club. It’s a joy to see how quickly their photography can improve.”
