Overview

Mursley Photography Club was formed in 2011 after interest was expressed by a number of Mursley residents who regularly entered photos into the Mursley Show and who wanted more opportunities to improve their photographic skills.

None of the current members are professional or award winning photographers (other than those who may have won a category in the Village Show!!), but all members enjoy photography either just for social purposes and memories or as a general hobby and who want to improve their photographic skills by getting more out of the equipment they use.

Membership is open to all, not just Mursley residents, there is no age restriction other than under 18’s need to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. All you will need is a camera, however simple or basic it might be.

The philosophy of the Club is one of friendly co-operation and support, those who are more technically minded are only too pleased to offer advice to relative beginners, those who are more artistic provide advise on things like composition.

If your experience is only limited please don’t be put off by thinking the Club would be too serious for you, we are not highly competitive and hope that the Club offers something to everyone with an interest in the subject.

Fees

Current membership costs £25/annum payable in Autumn, (or proportionately less if joining during the year). Membership entitles members to attend all monthly meetings (including light refreshment). Additional fees may be charged to attend special events. Attendance at your first meeting is free.

Meetings

The Club meets every second Tuesday of the Month (except August), at 8pm in the Mursley Village Hall Committee room. Special events are occasionally arranged to other venues offering photographic opportunities to members.

The monthly meetings are a mixture of Club evenings where members share their photos along a variety of themes, and evenings with guest speakers who talk on a wide range of subjects – some on technical or artistic subjects, others just on the speakers speciality, but all offering opportunity to members to pick up tips on how to improve your photographs.
