Here’s a little update of what exciting things are happening over the next couple of weeks…
1. Membership cards will be given out this Thursday evening (19th November) at 7pm in the Gallery (above the Source). Please make sure you come and get your membership card as this will enable you to borrow kit.
2. Kit borrowing will begin this week! Hooray! You’ll need to log onto the PhotoSoc website and go to the Equipment booking form page to request the kit that you want. The maximum period hire is one week at a time. We’ll explain more on Thursday how it works, so don’t forget to come to the Gallery at 7pm!
3. No Limits Film Festival are having their launch event this Friday 20th November at the Showroom cinema. They’ve asked if one person from PhotoSoc would be interested in photographing the event. It will be from about 6pm until 9pm on Friday evening. Please can you email PhotoSoc if you’re interested as it’s on a first come first served basis, and we’ll put you in touch with the organisers.
4. Poi in the Park is a big poi/juggling/spinning things party in Weston Park this Saturday (21st November) starting at 1pm. It’s completely free to go and would be a great event to get some colourful action shots that you can share on the PhotoSoc flickr group! CANCELLED :(
5. The Cheerleading Society have asked if a couple of our members could do some action shots of a few of their practices next Monday (23rd November). There are 2 possible slots – the first is in the Food Court 6-7pm, and the second is in Brookhill Hall 7-8pm. Again, please email PhotoSoc if you’re interested and we’ll put the people who respond first in touch with the Cheerleaders.
6. Next Thursday meeting (26th November) won’t be a normal meeting. We’ve been invited to the “COMEDIANS from the 1940s to now” exhibition at the Graves Gallery in Sheffield. We can get tickets free of charge for any of our members who would like to go. Please email us by FRIDAY 20th November so we can order our tickets. The exhibition is 6-8pm. We really encourage you to come along – it’ll be a great evening and we will no doubt be going for our regular PhotoSoc bar session afterwards!
7. For all the members who aren’t showing their photos at the Varsity exhibition on Sunday 29th November, please do come along anyway to see your fellow members’ work and support each other as artists. It starts at 3pm and will go on until late (about 11pm). There will be nibbles provided and the bar will be serving drinks. Even if you just come down for half an hour, it would be lovely to see lots of you there! And bring all of your friends with you to show them what PhotoSoc do!
8. And finally, the next social will be BOWLING! Yay! It’ll be on Thursday 3rd December at Hollywood Bowl in Centertainment. It’s only £6 for 2 games after 6pm with your U card. We’ll aim to start bowling at 7pm, so if you could get there a little bit before to get your shoes and into teams, etc. We’ll be going by tram, which is £3 for a dayrider, and we’ll be going for a couple of drinks afterwards just to round off the night. We’ll remind you again closer to the time, but make sure you put it in your diary!!
That’s all for now. If you have any questions, just send us an email and we’ll get back to you ASAP. See you on Thursday!
Lots of camera love,
Watch this… it is absolutely AMAZING!
