University of Sheffield Photo Soc

Photo-critiquing and intense biscuit session

Dear photo-soccers,

This weeks meeting will be a photo-critiquing and intense biscuit session! The meeting will be on Thursday the 20th in The Arts Tower LT6 at 7:15pm. (Meetings will be free for members (remember to bring your membership keyring along!) and non-members will have to pay £2 on the door. However you can buy membership at the meeting (or on the door) so don’t worry.) The meeting will be a casual session with lots of snacks and hot drinks (so feel free to bring something to eat and a mug) where whoever wants to show off some of their photos, can, by bringing a USB with some of your favourite photos on or by showing us a Flickr or Facebook album (please have the photos you want to show all together so you don’t have to scroll through years worth of photos). Don’t feel pressurised to show any, you can just come along to eat and be social but it would be nice to see some of your work :) . The critiquing is only casual and usually mostly consists of “oohhhhh, awwwww…. that’s nice!” Hope to see you and your photos there!

Another reminder that the York Christmas market trip is on the 30th of November and the Facebook event is HERE. Remember to buy your tickets :)

There is also a NUPS (National University Photographic Society) organised Photo Hunt in London on the 22nd of November.HERE is a link to their web page about previous Hunts and the general information. and HERE are a few slides with information about this years event. Tom Williamson from our society will be going, so if you would like to attend, ONCE YOU HAVE BOUGHT YOUR TRAIN TICKETS, either contact him or email us with your details as NUPS have to receive a registration list prior to the event. There is a £5 per person fee (Student. £7 for alumni. or £10 on the day) for taking part in the event that NUPS use for the prizes etc.. We will hopefully be organising our own Photosoc trip to London later on in the academic year, so don’t worry if you cannot attend this photo hunt.

Two more quick things to mention: Firstly we have a Facebook page as well as group which can be found here We will normally post reminders and just random stuff on there. Secondly we have a Flickr group. Please join the group and it can be a dedicated place to share your photos, either from meetings, or from other photosoccy stuff. The Flickr group is here Please note that any photos that you put up from now on Flickr may be used for publicity purposes, but you will be credited!

And finally, Jobs are always posted on the group and occasionally emailed out if there are jobs left not taken. So keep an eye for them. A really interesting one is coming up though, that deserves a special mention. As you can see this is not until next semester but we thought we would give you a heads up as it does require more photographers! Photosoc are also getting some exhibition space in the Union during the festival, and who ever volunteers for the job will be guaranteed to get their work on display!

  • PLATFORM FESTIVAL – 6th – 8th March 
    – There will be performances throughout the Union for 3 days and we would need a number of photographers on each day. These photographers would have free entry for the weekend (normally £10) Plus free wristbands.
