Welcome

FROM THE CHAIRMAN

From our modest beginnings, we have established Derby City as a club that out of the 50- plus members of N&EMPF (North & East Midlands Photographic Federation), has long been in the top six at the annual N&EMPF Exhibition and, for even longer, has an enviable reputation for the quality of its lectures. We also encourage the spirit of competition through monthly themed contests in both digital and print.

Over 40 years, Derby City has also built up a reputation as a friendly club where prospective members are given a warm welcome. They also come into a healthy fold of eager-to-learn beginners right through to experienced practitioners who both inspire and help others.

We have always had the advantage over other clubs in meeting all year round, and no other club in the region has such a flourishing photo library – over 150 books - or a more professional, up-to-date website.

Tuesday 26th October

DIANE SEDDON ARPS, AFIAP, CPAGB, BPE3* presents ODD THINGS

This talk by one of N&EMPF’s most creative photographers will ask you questions like: ‘When did you last have a creative idea? Did it work? Does it matter if it didn’t?’ As Diane says further: ‘Let’s talk creative; let’s think different. Let’s not worry about the judges and let’s learn to play again. Shoot the unusual. Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks... Dare to be different!’ This promises to be an illuminating and absorbing evening if you want to challenge yourself and both be creative and have fun with photography.
