Workshop information for the 2017-18 season

With input from Roger Crocombe and other BRCC members we run a series of monthly workshops right through the club year. (Please note that the workshops will continue to run right through the 'closed' season).

The workshops will take place on a Saturday morning between 09:30 and 12:15 in the small hall at St. Mary's Centre which is situated directly behind the main hall in the same building.

Please aim to arrive around 09:15 so we can start promptly. The workshop will end at 12:15 so we can pack up and be clear by 12:30.

Note revised times!!

Because of space limitations attendance will initially be limited to 25 BRCC members only, on a first come first served basis,
at a cost of £6 per person (to cover hall costs), payable at time of booking.
Note that there needs to be a minimum of six delegates for each workshop to be viable, so if you are intending to attend then please book in or there is a risk of cancellation.

Non members may be accommodated at a fee of £10 (payable on the day) if space is available at the discretion of the event organiser.

You reserve your place using our Eventbrite based booking system. Bookings for each workshop are normally opened a minimum of four weeks in advance of each workshop and the link to the booking is shown below each worshop's title in the list below.

When booking you are asked for your email address so any relevant notices can be sent to you.

Practical visits are are for members to go out and take pictures as a group. They are open to all whether you have attended any related workshop or not. Details for each will be on the Noticeboard about six weeks in advance.

The normal proctice is that the notes or slides from the workshop will be posted in the member's area of the club's website on or shortly after the workshop's date.

The programme outlined below will follow a logical sequence from camera use and image capture through to the production of a finished print/pdi exploring specific areas of photography e.g. landscape, macro, etc and any specific equipment/techniques required in those areas in order to create successful images.

Some of the content/dates may change depending upon hall/speaker availability. Plenty of notice of any changes will be given.

The purpose of these and future workshops is to improve everyone's understanding and help all to get more enjoyment and pleasure out of our hobby.
