The photography group is now in its 9th year and surviving despite everything! The group consists of 30+ members with very different levels of expertise. We have some excellent photographers in our number but also have many photographers with much less experience (and confidence). The cameras too range from the expensive state of the art kit right through to compacts and bridge cameras... and even mobile phones! The aim of the group is to help members become better photographers than they have been before.

The beauty of this mix of abilities is that most more experienced members are very willing to help those members in the group who are still learning. Even those who have been doing photography for many years benefit from revisiting techniques and those who are starting out and wanting to progress gain considerably from the experience of others.

Due to a change of leadership (the group is now co-ordinated by 3 members) we no longer have formal meetings. Instead we have decided to do what we like to do and that is to go out regularly taking photographs. We aim to have 2 or 3 outings a month and usually have one on the 4th Wednesday of the month, weather permitting. In order to get the best light conditions and make the most of our trips out most of these outings will start in the morning around 11 am but obviously this will vary according to the destination.

It is hoped we may be able to arrange some indoor meetings now and then but the emphasis is definitely on getting out with our cameras, enjoying the beautiful countryside and interesting locations around us and learning from each other in a practical setting. This is a very friendly group. If you are interested in joining please use the email address photography@u3ameltonmowbray.org.uk or telephone Christine Bluett on 01664 563239 (who is just one of the 3 members running this group).
