1st PDI Competitions Please Read

The deadline for the 1st Advanced PDI competition is midnight this Thursday 24th September. The 1st Club and Intermediate close on Thursday October 8th.

I have heard from PhotoComp that there has been an issue with their servers and potentially some entries may have been lost. I do not think that we have been affected, but can I ask all entrants to check that their entries are present. If not, you will need to re-upload them.

Digital Imaging Group Meeting 22 Sep 20 Tutorials

At the Digital Imaging Group meeting held on 22 September 2020 the following tutorials were presented:

Small Print Competition

This is a reminder to all eligible Club Class members that entries for the first round of the Small Print Competition should be received by the SPC Secretary on or before the deadline of Thursday 1st October.

African safari

For anyone interested in a photographic safari, the following post we the Club has received may be of interest.

Sophie Brown and Samuel Cox have established a new UK based photographic safari company, specialising in trips to Southern and Eastern Africa.  In addition to running trips with set dates throughout June to August (scheduled specifically for this period to allow for the effects of COVID-19 to settle), they are also able to facilitate bespoke group trips for between 4 and 6 people throughout the year across any of our Southern and Eastern African locations.

The beauty of these bespoke trips is that they can be tailor made to suit the requirements of the group booking, whether it be duration, location, photographic focus or photographic teaching.

For example, they currently offer a yearly photographic workshop in Makalali Private Nature Reserve in South Africa for 6 nights.  But if  an 8 day photographic workshop in Sabi Sands in South Africa (which is renowned for its leopard sightings) is preferred, then they can accommodate that for bespoke private groups.

Further details and booking for to bookings for 2021 and notices of interest for 2022 as well can be made by  email or through their website (

Sophie and Sam have a wealth of experience living and teaching wildlife photography in South Africa.  They are both passionate about the beauty of Africa and it wildlife and are keen to share its magic with like-minded photographers and nature enthusiasts.

Hi All,

Great night last night with Peter Searight who showed some wonderful images in his presentation.

Next week we are in the company of Harvey Mills ARPS. harvey,  with his presentation entitled ‘Street Photography – The Challenges and rewards of improvising in the Wild’. Judging by the images on his website we are in for a good night.

You’ve probably seen the newsletter about competition uploading so this is just a reminder that images for the advanced PDI comp must be uploaded by the 24th Sept,

Finally, the new guidelines issued by the Government regarding the number who can meet indoors or outdoors may well have an effect on the 2021 part of the season. Rest assured your committee will be keeping a close eye on any changes in those guidelines but I have to say that we may well be Zooming for the whole of this season. I will keep you as informed as I can in further newsletters.

Stay safe.
