Newquay

Photography

The Photography Group is led by Jennie - Tel 01726 824272

This group meets once a month, usually on the first Thursday. Various locations are chosen throughout the year by the Group. Any lifts are arranged when needed.

Indoor sessions at Crantock Village Hall are also held from time to time and this gives members a chance to discuss any problems with the more experienced members of the Group.

A photography competition, judged by expert photographers, is held six times a year, culminating in a 'Winner of Winners' Trophy.
