  • The club has access to minibuses and will be putting on regular trips.

Founder Member

The club was formed by Ross Haxton who says "I formed the group to teach, educate and simplify the functions and use of a camera.. we make everything understandable.. I have 6 others helping me to achieve this, all dedicated to the club".

"We pride ourselves on the fact anybody at any level of understanding is welcome along.. we even have people attending that do not own camera's, just a love of photography - everyone is welcome." " We aim to be a fun and friendly club, please come along and do something good for photography"

"THIS CLUB IS ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU WANT US TO PROVIDE, so don't be shy in telling us what you want to learn and be liberal with your ideas, we are here to provide a service to you.. PLEASE HELP US BY KEEPING US INFORMED."

Can you help?

The club is trying to secure some funding, as they wish to offer their services to people without equipment, so those who cannot afford them can at least come along and join. They would like to buy camera's, they also need a projector, a computer.... Can you help? Would you like to sponsor this new club? Or maybe you have equipment you can donate?
