"Cycling in Amsterdam" by Tony Bennett

it's all about the pictures!

Make sure you visit us at least once a week to look our latest images and pick up news of anything happening on the Island that might be of interest to photographers, including those of you just visiting the Isle of Wight.

We often get asked by photographers visiting from elsewhere to advise them on the best locations here for various types of photography.  We are always pleased to help if we can.  Go to the Contact Us page and send us a message.  We would like to hear from you.

Club league competition - Print 2 

Some lovely shots entered in the second Print competition of the year.  Doug Cox and Chuck Eccleston both scored 10s in the colour section, whilst Rob Buckett and Steve Collins came out on top of the Monos.

Many thanks to Frances and Tony for sending in digital files of their prints.  Great work!
