Dear all you lovely photographers!
We’ve got some stuff to tell you about to keep you updated with what’s going on in the next few weeks.
A Seminar with Paul Hill
On Thursday 12th November at 7pm, Paul Hill, a professional photographer and lecturer in photography who is well known for his landscape work (see bio below), is coming to Sheffield to give a seminar to PhotoSoc. He will be talking about how he became interested in photography and how that led him to taking landscapes, notably in black and white, and also about some of his more recent work in colour, leading on to a discussion with everybody about whatever you’d like to talk about. We will also be introducing a new element into our meetings, which is a compulsory cake break. If anybody is a particularly good cook, it would be great if you could make some cakes and bring them along with you. If you’re not so great in the kitchen, just some cheapy cakes will be wonderful! The seminar will be in Lecture Theatre 9 in the Arts Tower at 7pm. Please do come along- it’s going to be a great night, and we’ll be having drinks in Interval after, just to chill out!
The membership cards have arrived! We can only get them to you if you come along to meetings, trips or socials, and you’ll need them to be able to borrow equipment etc. So don’t forget to come to the seminar on 12th November to get your membership card!
Just a reminder about the industrial walk this Sunday 8th November around the Park Hill / Victoria Quays / Wicker / Kelham Island area. If you haven’t emailed us to say that you’re coming, please do. It’s just so we can see how many people are going to be coming. We’ll email you on Saturday to confirm because we need to check the weather forecast, so please check your email before Sunday. We plan to meet at Sheffield train station at 1:30pm.
We have our first copy of Digital Photographer Magazine. It’s in the PhotoSoc folder in our pigeon hole in the Source. Feel free to have a flick through but please put it back in the pigeon hole once you’re done with it. It is for everybody so we can all learn more about photography.
We are currently in the final stages of securing a discount with Harrisons Cameras for PhotoSoc members. We’ll let you know when it’s definite and what you’ll need to get your discount!
A quick reminder about the PhotoSoc exhibition at Varsity on West Street on 29th November. If you haven’t got in touch with us yet but you’re still interested in exhibiting your photos, please email us by Sunday 8th November. This is not the deadline to submit your photos, it is just the cut-off date for expressing your interest in showing your prints. Once we know how many people will be showing their photos, we’ll give you more information about how many prints you can have, sizes etc.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all either on Sunday or next Thursday!
Lots of love,
