Photography - Out and About

Photography - Out and About

We are a small group of photographers who enjoy digital photography as a hobby.

Our monthly photoshoots are held mid-week. We then review some of our photos during an afternoon at a member's house to share ideas and knowledge.

A selection of our pictures is shown below.

We are full at present, but if you are interested in joining the group or finding out more, please contact Pat Rumpus.
