Meet and Greet Evening

This Friday 30th September, HPS are holding a "Meet and Greet" evening and club members are encouraged to bring along friends or family who may be interested in photography to see what the club does and to have their photographic questions answered.

The first half of the evening will take a look at the club activities and the second half will be a Q&A session with members staffing tables answering questions on various photographic topics. The LCPU Folio will be on display.
During the evening we will also try and set up a mentoring system with club members willing to become a mentor for those looking for mentoring to improve their photographic skills.

For club members Friday is the hand in for our first monthly competition which is "Open / Altered Reality" The print section is A4 unmounted prints and there's a new entry form on the club website to download.

If you're looking for answers on anything photographic then come along to our "Meet and Greet" evening at Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane West Kirby. The doors open at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10pm finish.

Reflections on Malham Tarn FSC

During May 2016 club members spent a long weekend at Malham Tarn Field Study Center in the Yorkshire Dales and this Friday 16th September we'll be taking a look at the range of photographs that they took in the area.

Each member has been asked to submit 10 images from the trip and there will be a fun competition to determine the best and the quirky.

If you want to see what our members get up to as a club then we meet at Newton Village Hall, Grange Cross Lane in West Kirby with the doors opening at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10pm finish. Non members are always welcome paying only £2 on the door.

New Season- Hoylake International Review

Hello everyone. It feels like only yesterday that Hoylake Photographic Society closed for the Summer recess but we're back this Friday 9th September with a new season of photography, competitions, expert guest speakers, and learning.

The season kicks off with a look at the inspiring images that were accepted into our own Hoylake International Exhibition 2016, some from our own members, and if the work of top amateur photographers from across the World doesn't encourage you to pick up a camera then nothing will. As usual we're meeting at Newton village Hall, Grange Cross Lane, West Kirby with the doors opening at 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start and a 10 pm finish. This is also an "Open Night" meaning that members of the public are allowed free entry to the club so pass the word around.

Barry Quatermass has put out a reminder that 30th September is our "Meet and Greet" evening and all members are encouraged to invite and bring along a family member, friend or both so see what the club does and ask questions on photography. Hopefully we will gain some new members from the night and our visitors will go home with newly acquired skills.
