Annual General Meeting

agm-webThis week is the Society’s Annual General Meeting.

It’s the night of the year where we plan what we as a Society will be aiming for over the next 12 months.

The success of the Society is the direct result of the time and passion that our members put into it. Even your questions and ideas can be a great help in making the Society better.

This is an ideal time to get involved and help direct the future of the Society.

If you have any ideas or suggestions as to how the Society can continue to develop and how we can improve then please come along.

In addition to the meeting itself we shall be holding an auction of photographic items. Come along to pick up a bargain!

Hope to see you all there.

President’s Evening with Mike Atkinson

mike-webWe’re coming up to the end of this year’s season of the Society and this week’s meeting is a very special one. It is the “President’s Evening”.

Towards the end of each year the President of the Society takes it upon themselves to entertain us for the evening. Whether this is by bringing in special guest speakers, lecturing about one of their interests or by showcasing their own work; it is completely up to them. The content is almost always a total mystery to everyone until the evening itself.

This year that honour falls upon our outgoing President Mike Atkinson.

You can see a selection of Mike’s competition winners in the Gallery.

An Evening with Morecambe Bay Movie Makers

morecambe-bay-movie-makers-webThis week we are the guests of our friends over in the Morecambe Bay Movie Makers.

Morecambe Bay Movie Makers is a group of independent local film-makers with interests and experience in a wide range of film-making techniques, from cine-photography and animation to digital editing and image manipulation.

Each year we take turns in hosting a night where we showcase our recent activities to each other.

This year it’s the turn of Morecambe to host the evening so this week’s meeting will be held on Monday evening in Morecambe.

Over the past few years as DSLR cameras have found a place within the film and television industry we are finding that more and more that the interests of our two clubs have moved closer together. This promises to be a fun and interested evening featuring presentations by both clubs.
