We have photographers in our circles at every level.
The common factor is fun and friendship in a way not too taxing on time or the wallet.
We all want to improve through learning from each other, by monthly evaluation of our images and most importantly getting the camera out of the bag and having a reason to get out and have a go!
That's the best way to learn and improve.
We keep in touch with a circle message system, sometimes written, more often digital. We have an excellent free quarterly club magazine and many members attend the annual AGM held over a relaxed weekend. It is the only (optional) time we meet face to face, to hear outside judges comments and receive awards, plus enjoy each other's company.
