Having written a little entry in support of Warwick Motorsport last week (you can still join any time!) I thought I'd write a post urging everyone to go to Societies Fair in the next two days - there are different societies on each day – to join, among others, PhotoSoc.

Warwick PhotoSoc is a huge (200 members), friendly (really!) and very active society. We've also been one of the most successful in recent years:

2003/04 UWSU SocsFed "Most Improved Society"

2004/05 UWSU SocsFed "Best Society"

We can offer:
– traditional and digital darkroom facilities and training
– regular trips to British cities for photographic or exhibition visits
– at least one longer trip away (see below)
– advice on how to use your camera
– joint events with Coventry Photographic Society
– chances to exhibit your work
– studio sessions
– specialist groups for theatre and sports photography, among others
– lots of socials, not all of which will be alcohol-based

I mentioned trips away: last year we went to Prague for five days over Easter and had a fantastic time, some people taking lots of photos and others just being tourists for most of the time. The year before, just as much fun somehow, was a long weekend in the Lake District. You'll have to ask this year's exec where they're planning on next (I don't want to give the game away if plans have been altered recently)!

The majority of our members are always either beginners or completely new to photography – there's nowhere better than university to take up something you're interested in! I'll leave you with some photos; better versions of these and others in my PhotoSoc and Prague galleries.

Societies Fair: Monday and Tuesday (today and tomorrow), 10-4.

    That's a nice list of awards, something for every society to aspire to :)

  4. Also realised I was going to ask you what happened to those Letting Go photos? Cos apparently there were quite a few good ones – but someone told me they got destroyed? Shame… Would be willing to part with some cash for some good photos of me and friends…

  5. Lorna, I've no idea I'm afraid! I only made it along to one or two rehearsals myself, so I don't have the originals for any/many of the good pictures. Charlotte (the co-president of PhotoSoc this year) might be able to help you track some down – we may have digital copies of a few floating around somewhere.
