Long Preston does not have a photographic group that meets in Long Preston itself. However, the bulk of the Settle Photographic Group’s members come from far and wide including Horton, Ingleton, Bentham, Clapham, Litton & yes Long Preston.
Meetings are in Townhead Court (opposite Townhead Surgery) on the first and third Mondays in the winter months and just the third Monday in the summer months. There is a good programme of photography based topics, planned outings to places of photographic interest and an annual exhibition held at Clapham Village Hall.
The best way to find out more is to look on the SPG website at http://www.settlephotos.org but better still to turn up as a visitor and sample a few meetings. This is a group that has plenty of relative beginners so there is ample scope to pick up new skills, and fairly quickly. If there are photographic experts out there willing to share their expertise the group can use their skills too.
There is an annual exhibition and a ‘Settle Town Trail’ where member’s photographs are displayed.
This year’s exhibition is on 24th August at Clapham. The next club meeting is on 15th July where the plan is to break into small groups with photographic topics for discussion. The next outing is a visit to Dry Rigg Quarry.
Do have a look at the website and see what the club might offer you or maybe what you could bring to the club. There are a host of member’s photos on the website to give an idea of the breadth of interests & abilities.
