University of Sheffield Photo Soc

Alumni Exhibition

Hi Guys!

Were currently looking to set up a small exhibition for the alumni foundation to display the sort of work photosoc members produce to say thank you for the generous funding that they offer us. Because of this we would love it if all of you could send in a photo (just one please) that you would be happy to have displayed in firth court on Thursday, also you will be welcome to pick up your print in all it’s glory after the exhibition has finished, i.e. at the next meeting.

Unfortunately we can’t print off reams and reams of photo’s for this so we’re limiting it to the first 50 applicants that we get, with a final deadline of 4pm on monday.

Please send all entries in an attachment as a reply to this email please.

So with no time to loose, get searching for your chosen photo to send in!

NatHistSoc Photo Exhibition THIS THURSDAY!

Hi everyone,

Need a photographic fix this Thursday? Natural History Society are holding an exhibition of entries from their recent photo competition upstairs in the University Arms on Thursday 9th December, 7-10pm. Entrance is free to competition entrants (plus 1 guest each) and members of NatHistSoc. For everyone else there’s a recommended donation of £1, with proceeds going to The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Having been invited along to judge the entries, I can tell you that you’re in for a treat, with some amazing work from our very own university staff and students. So pop along, check out some top quality photos and maybe grab a pint too.

Photographic love :)

December things!

Bonjour everyone!

Although we are winding down for Christmas (unfortunately deadlines loom for many of us) we still have one more trip for this term, and some fun things to tell you about for after Christmas!

Trip to York Christmas Market

On Saturday 11th December, we are going to get all festive at York Christmas Market. Great for photos and merriment! We will be meeting at the train station at 10:30 and will get the 10:54 train to York so please make sure you arrive on time. You can get an open return ticket for £10.75 with a railcard so you’ll be able to come back to Sheffield with us or whenever you want throughout the day.
Make sure you bring your friends, your camera (if you have one), some warm clothes, and some money for trinkets and mulled wine!

Spring term exhibition

We are in the early stages of planning a PhotoSoc exhibition for the end of March 2010. Any of you can show your photos (if you’re a member) and they will be on a theme of your choice. We’ll give you more details after Christmas, but for now just keep snapping away to get those beautiful pictures that you might like to display! :)

Weekend trip to Edinburgh

Yet more exciting things!! We’re going to take a little trip to Edinburgh for the first weekend of the Easter holiday (8th-10th April). Again, we will tell you a bit more after Christmas, but make sure you put it in your diaries if you think you might be interested. We will have a limited number of places which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


We won’t be having any more Thursday meetings before Christmas so if you need to pay for a hoodie that you have ordered, please come and find us in the Gallery Eye (upstairs in the union) between 7 and 8pm on a Monday evening. The hoodies are £18 and it would be great if you could try and bring the correct change. Thanks!

Look out for more fun, useful and interesting things on the website over the holidays and, as always, please contact us if you have any questions.

Lots of love and merriment,

PhotoSoc xx

(See you next Saturday if you’re coming to York!)

We’ve raised lots of money!

Well done to PhotoSoc for raising a whopping £124.87 over the course of the Five Walls exhibition!

This money will help Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind to continue their work supporting over 3000 blind and partially sighted people.

We’re having an exhibition! Tell everyone!

Dear all you lovely photographers,

You should all know by now that we are having our mega FIVE WALLS exhibition this weekend at Sylvester Space. If you’re exhibiting, thanks for getting your pictures and payments in on time. The prints are all being created right now… as I type! So we’re all very excited!

If you would like to have the opportunity to put up your own photos, just come down to the exhibition space on Thursday. We will be there from 4 – 8pm, so if you can make it down, it would be great to see you. Plus you’ll get a little preview of everybody else’s work! If you can’t make it, we will put your prints up for you.

If you are exhibiting, tell everybody about it and come down to see yours and everybody else’s work!

If you are not exhibiting, still tell everybody about it! This is PhotoSoc’s biggest event of the year, we’re all really excited about it and we want all of our members to be there to share it too. So bring your friends and families along with you to FIVE WALLS. It’s going to be the talk of the town!

Lots of excited exhibitiony love!

PhotoSoc xx
