We are a satellite of London Independent Photography and a forum for both amateurs and professional photographers. Our activities are designed to bring together photographers with different levels of interests and expertise who are interested in developing their personal approach to photography and improving their skills.
The group meet regularly and informally to talk about each other's work and to swap notes and experiences.
We recently spent some time reflecting where the group was up to. Out of that we came up with these as aspirations of the group...
- It's to share practice and get feedback on photos and personal projects.
- It's held together by passion for photography.
- It's to break isolation.
- It's to learn from others, broaden experience, and contribute to others.
- It's welcoming for all levels of experience.
We would like the following to happen...
- Share photos and receive feedback in depth rather than superficially - to aid this suggested a focus on one or two people a time which is planned ahead of time.
- People to share what inspires them.
- Talks/presentations from within the group or from those outside.
- Workshops on things of interest/relevant to the group.
- Go out on shoots or projects with a few others to learn from one another.
- Challenges/shoots as a group
- Exhibit either as a group or small groups
- Share news of exhibitions and what's happening elsewhere
Happy New Year! We had our first meeting of the year and so many people brought photos it was hard to fit everything in. Good to see that there always seem to be one or two new people coming along each time.
Thirteen members of our group will be exhibiting at Artisan Coffee House
in Ealing. The exhibition will run for three months from 17 January to 17 April during which time three separate one monthly shows will be hung, demonstrating the diversity of the groups' work. Artisan is at 32, New Broadway, W5 2XA and opening hours are:
Monday-Friday 7:30am-5:30pm, Saturday 8:30am-5:30pm, Sunday 9:00am-5:30pm
