What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in learning the absolute basics of photography in the great outdoors. All skill levels and ages welcome. We don't care if you use a smartphone, point and shoot, DSLR or GoPro strapped to your dogs head. Our helpful volunteers are on hand to provide a range of practical support from "how do I turn this on?" to "has anyone seen Fenton?". Our PhotoWalks usually last a couple of hours, include the option of a creative assignment (i.e. can you photograph a swan without losing an eye?), and end with a cup of tea and a natter!
