Club league competition - incorporating the Gordon Richards Trophy 

Stuart Bennett (THE WINNER) came out top of a great set of entries in our first Projected Digital Image Club League competition of the season.

In fact both Stuart and brother Tony did extremely well, as the images below show.  Letterbox formats were very popular in this year's landscape/ seascape competition.

Longstanding member Larry Darby is leaving us shortly, moving on to new pastures. His parting shot is shown below.  We wish him well and many thanks for the considerable contribution he has made to the club over the years.

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.
