University of Sheffield Photo Soc

Residential trip and Exhibition!

Dear Photocats,
Happy new year! 2015 promises to be an exciting year…

This year we will be gracing the lovely city of Chester with our presence for 5 days! This is a city steeped in history and presents a wide array of photography opportunities. Details of what exactly we shall be doing will follow but I can almost guarantee we will be taking a trip to Conway Castle, a beautiful 13th Century castle, as well as a trip to Chester zoo, one of the largest in the UK, and of course we will be taking in the many sites Chester has to offer from its traditional architecture to its Roman sites and Cathedral. We will also look to take in the stunning countryside of North Wales. As you can see there is something for everyone with animals, landscapes and cityscapes just a few of the things you will be able to photograph.

As with last year we ask you to make your own way to and from Chester as we find that this generally works out cheaper for individuals as people will not all be coming from and going to Sheffield, suggested arrival and departure times will follow.

We will be staying for five days and four nights from the 6th to the 10th of April at the Chester Backpackers hostel in a private mixed dorm, as such we are limited to the number of members we can take so please click attending on the event and pay the non refundable £15 deposit by the end of the meeting on February 19th. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO THIS AS YOUR PLACE WILL NOT BE SECURED UNTIL YOUR DEPOSIT IS PAID. You will then have to pay the rest of the £85 (so £70) by our final meeting before Easter, March 12th. For this price you will receive 4 nights accommodation, Breakfast, Lunch and evening meals eaten within the hostel.


Don’t miss out on what is one of the best social event of the Photosoc Calendar.

Then next best event on our social calendar is our Exhibition!

In Bank Street Arts, from the 25th until the 28th of February 2015.

Everyone is welcome to come and view it so make sure you tell all your friends that your work is being displayed!
There will also be an Exhibition night held at Bank Street Arts itself on the evening of Friday 27th of February to celebrate the exhibition. This is your exhibition made of your work, so again, invite your friends to come along! Here is the Facebook event. Details on submissions are at the end end of this email.

Happy Snapping,

Poster v3

P.s The guidelines for submitting your photos to the exhibition: Any updates will be posted on the event and emailed out.
Firstly all printing, mounting and framing must be submitted by Thursday February 19th.
There is no minimum or maximum size for your submission. – In regards to sizing of prints, we have printed a few at 12 x 8 and others at 9 x 6. This is down to personal taste, as 12 x 8 won’t mount on an A4 piece of card, but I think a good size to look at.
Each paid member may submit up to 4 pieces
You do not have to frame your submission(s), but they must be mounted. Foam board and card are both allowed.
Clip frames are not allowed as these are awkward and look messy (example of what a clip frame is)
When submitting, please supply us with your name, the title of the piece, and the date. This is so we can make some labels up and credit your work.
We strongly recommend Peak Imaging ( to print your shot. It’s an online service, it’s based in Sheffield, and it’s one of the best for quality printing. Don’t get it done from Boots just because they’re average, Harrison’s are fine but Peak Imaging have got a reputation for being better. Good printing is a lot to do with making sure the colours are the same as the colours as they appear, Boots are average because they don’t pay the attention to this process that Peak Imaging do.
These are some good online mount and frame sellers:
For mounting, there will be a short demonstration in a meeting next semester (most probably the 12th of Feb).
In short, mounting is gluing a photograph to a piece of card or foamboard with a bit of card left around the outside. There is a wealth of youtube videos on this, but basically,
Print photo at Peak Imaging
Buy some black or white card (ivory shade of white is my personal preference, but consider black for effect too)
Get some spray glue (you can buy both card and glue from Staples (directions from the IC here). You can also get glue from WHSmith in the town centre, but not from Wilkinsons as they don’t stock it.
Use a ruler to cut your card with a scalpel/other cutting device it to leave an inch or so around the outside of your photo (that’s about 2.5 to 3cm if you’re metric, but use what you think looks best).
Consider using pencil guidelines to help you stick the print straight.
Cover surfaces, maybe open a window to ventilate
Spray glue all over the back of the print. Wait about 10-15 seconds until the glue becomes tacky.
Stick carefully.
If you mess it up, act quickly, peel it off and stick it down again. (If it’s seriously bad, cut round the print so no mount is showing and stick it on another bit of card, no one will know)
You may supply a price for your submission if you want viewers to be able to buy your piece. However, keep in mind that in the event of a sale Bank Street Arts will take a commission from this (more info to come soon on % of commission).
I think that just about covers it. If you have any questions email the Photosoc account at or post on the group or on here.
