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&EMP 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. We also believe that our venue is one of the finest in the region, a spacious banqueting suite offering comfort, conviviality and a licensed bar where you can buy your Chairman a drink.

Zoom meeting - Monday 2nd November

LOUISE WALTON CPAGB and GARY LANGLEY DPAGB, BPE2* - ME & MR GRUMPY

Following Gary’s absorbing talk last year, his partner Louise takes the spotlight. She is a fine photographer who excels in nature, portraiture, sport, architectural and still life photography – though Gary (Mr Grumpy) will also present his varied images to show how they work as a team. Just don’t expect him to smile...

Zoom meeting - Monday 9th November

BARBIE LINDSAY MPAGB EFIAP/s FBPE - A BYTE OF BARBIE

Barbie, who hails from Norfolk, is described as a ‘photographic obsessive whose world is seen through the eye of the lens.’ As Barbie herself says: ‘if it moves I'll photograph it; if it doesn't move I'll photograph it.’
However, this only partly explains why she is one of the most awarded photographers in the PAGB. Put simply, Barbie is gifted, and this talk will show the breadth, variety and quality of her photography as she presents a mix of her favourite work and her latest images.
When you see her on your screen, do not adjust the colour calibration on your monitor: her hair really is that pink... unless she has gone back to her blue phase... or maybe green.
