  • DPS Studio Weekend/Lighting Workshop.
    Saturday/Sunday 25th/26th October
    The idea is to run it at least partially as a lighting workshop, to give you more idea of how to use and set up the lights for different effects etc. Then we want to let you loose to try out what you have learned...!
    We will run two sets at the same time, with a professional model on each set, which will give everybody plenty of shooting time.
    Cost will be £25 for any one day or £40 for both days.
    We will throw in as much tea and coffee as you can drink, but you will need to bring your own packed lunch each day.
    To book a place or for further information please email Tom
  • Winter Quarterly Competition.

  • The Society depends upon the generosity of their sponsors and individuals and the hard work of volunteer's.

    Without such generosity we could not continue to help our members benefit from the therapeutic effect that photography gives them.
