Lots to mention – the main outdoor season drew to a close on Tuesday with a gorgeous evening’s shooting amongst the lengthening shadows. We were fortunate to have the Towcester & District Photographic Society on hand to share the late summer light.

From Monday 11th Sept. we’ll be back at our winter quarters of Akeley Wood Senior School between 19:00 and 21:00 on a Monday and Tuesday (some hardy souls may still shoot on a Sunday afternoon at Wicken though).

Lots of dates to note regarding beginner’s courses. Each is of 2 consecutive Sundays 13:30 to 16:30. We have two courses remaining in 2023 with seven (!) coming up in 2024.
