Manningtree Photographic Society


The long summer break often affords the opportunity for a change of scenery. But for their members, it’s also a challenge to produce an ‘unedited’ photograph, taken close to Manningtree for the fun competition on their opening night. Beauty, as always, is in the eye of the beholder, but fortunately it also abides on our very own doorstep, here at the original Cattawade Bridge.

You are welcome to join them, not only explore an ongoing interest in what is now, an everyday pursuit, but also to gain a slightly deeper insight via their series of talks, events and competitions. They were pleased to share an enjoyable visit to Beth Chatto’s garden with the Harwich & Dovercourt Club in August, to practice some outdoor photography.

The 2017/18 season runs through to May 2018. Their friendly group comprises of amateurs with a wide range of abilities, always willing to share their advice and experience.

They meet on Thursday evenings, twice monthly, at 7.30pm, at the St John’s Centre in Manningtree. New members will be welcome to join (subscription £40) or may attend initially as a visitor (£3). Future meetings are as followed,

Thursday 14th September: Chairman’s Welcome and Open Competition: Local unedited photographs taken within a five mile radius during the summer break

Thursday 28th September: A Humorous Look at my Photography by David Hall LRPS
