Welcome to the leading photography club in the area. We hold weekly meetings (Sept – May) with guest speakers, competitions, exhibitions, workshops, and photo walks.

Tuesday 23rd April – Annual Print Competition
We hold our Annual Print Competition on the 23rd April. There are 4 categorises: Colour, Mono, Portrait, and Landscape. The independent judge is Anne Sutcliffe FRPS. As well as selecting the four winning prints, Anne will chose one of the winners as the Print of the Year. Last year’s winner was “After The Rain, Mount Osorno” by Tony Moir.
We meet at the WI Hall on Warwick Road, Solihull. The meeting starts at 7.30pm and visitors are always made welcome. £3 at the door please.

Monday 29th April – Table Top Follow Up Workshop
This workshop will look at how we can best process our images from the Table Top evening, particularly how to improve “separation” between the main subject and the background.  This could include aspects like: exposure, saturation, colour temperature, clarity/contrast or even cutting out the main subject and pasting onto a different background.  The evening will start with a short presentation looking at the options with some examples, the rest of the time will be used trying some of the techniques on your own images.  
Workshops are not held at our usual venue, and are for members and invited guests. If you would like to attend please email breaches@btinternet.com.

Tuesday 30th April – Turning Pro: A Journey in Photography
Ross Jukes is a freelance photographer based in Birmingham. Self-taught but with an incredible desire to create striking images and push the quality of work with every new image.  Ross has worked with major clients from Rolls-Royce to the BBC and has several on-going commission with companies ranging from local sole-traders to large multi-nationals. When not at work on commissions, he spends an unhealthy amount of time producing images that show Birmingham in the best light possible (pun intended!), creating memorable pieces of art work.
We meet at the WI Hall on Warwick Road, Solihull. The meeting starts at 7.30pm and visitors are always made welcome. £3 at the door please.
