Club News - Nov / Dec 2019

Welcome to the first newsletter of the 2019/20 Season, it's my (George A) first newsletter. A big thankyou goes to Martin Evans for the many newsletter's he has drafted.


The season so far:


In September, we visited to Tadcaster and more specifically St Mary’s church.





Thank you to the St Mary’s Church for giving us access. Please note: the Church would like a few good photograph’s for their website. Please email them to


In October, we have had three very interesting Lectures


First up, was a visit from K L Falconry who gave a very interesting demonstration and ended up with an American Burrowing Owl joining the audience.








Then as part of the Wetherby festival, we had a lecture from Tesni Ward.

I hope you are now all using the “P for Professional” setting in your Cameras!







In the last week of October, we had Dave Butcher who still uses a dark room to process his black and white photographs.


Going forward in November
