Club

I joined the Lytham St Annes Photographic Society (LSAPS) at the beginning of the 2015-16 season. Initially I only went along to keep a friend company but saw a talk by Gary Waidson which was excellent, so I joined up. I entered the competitions as a way of gauging my standard and found that I did quite well. I moved straight through the groups from Beginners to Intermediate and then Intermediate to Advanced.  The Club holds an annual Photoshow at the end of the season and this is another opportunity to get your images judged.

Below are a selection of my images which have done well in Club competitions but haven’t been accepted into external Exhibitions.

LSAPS is one of about 100 clubs which are part of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU). The L&CPU also hold an annual competition for individuals, which provides further opportunity to test your images. Below are a few of my images which have been held for L&CPU folios but which again have not yet been accepted into external Exhibitions.
