Join the Photographic Group

Amble Photographic Group continues to meet on Friday mornings between 9am and 12 noon in the Trinity Methodist Church for a very friendly enjoyable and informative meeting.

You don’t have to be an ‘Expert Photographer’ to be welcomed as a member of the Group. All you need is an interest in photography. We are here to help! We love to take photos. As a member of our group you have access to weekly meetings and newsletters, speakers, workshops, outings and much more. Everything is tailored to help you take better photographs.

We embrace Digital and Print photography and run competitions in both.

Our most recent print competition was on the theme “Cemetery” and was judged by Howard Wilson APAGB. Congratulations to Dave Jones who claimed first and second places with his amazing photos “Angel” and “Old Graves” In third place was David Burns with a beautiful local photo “East Cemetery Spire.”

Both Susan Thompson and Richard Poyer were awarded Highly Commended for their entries, and Richard and Carol McKay were both Commended for their excellent work.

Our monthly competitions are all judged by skilled photographers, and we have had numerous positive comments about the friendly atmosphere in the club and the high quality of the entries.

This summer has seen us taking advantage of the lovely weather for our Summer Projects, enjoying group outings to Cullernose Point and Howick village, Craster, Dunstangbough, Embleton and Edlingham.

Back in the club we enjoyed sharing our photographs and reliving the highlights of the day.

Our weekly meetings are enjoyed for the friendship, support and sharing of ideas as well as the varied and interesting programme. We love our Field Trips, we love our local outings, any opportunity to take photographs and we are there!

All abilities welcome – our friendly members are happy to share their knowledge. We’re serious about our photography, but we also believe we should enjoy our Friday mornings!

Membership can help you learn, develop photography and printing skill competitions and exhibitions and s as well as help you enter make new friends.

Why not join us for a free “taster” session, telephone 01665 710177 or just come along on a Friday morning and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome.
