Box End Summer Event

I have arranged an evening at Box End waterpark for Tuesday the 13th of August. The wakeboarders will be out until 8pm and we can arrive whenever we like. As usual, there will be a bar for us to have a drink afterwards if we want to.

It would be useful if you would let me know if you are coming, just in case we need to cancel so I know who to contact.

If anyone has any questions or to let me know if they are coming they can email me on

PAGB Awards

The PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit

The CACC is hosting the PAGB Awards assessment on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November of this year and so this is a good time to attend an assessment without the need to travel too far. The assessment will be held at the James Theatre, Watford Grammar School for Boys, Rickmansworth Road, WD18 7JL.


Dog Photography

Reminder: on Tuesday July 16th we are holding a Dog Photography event in the specially built “playground for dogs” in Cople (3 miles east of Bedford.)

There is a small charge to share the cost of the field hire, probably about £3

We have 4 members bringing along a total of 5 dogs for us to photograph while they play, run and jump on the various “obstacles” set up for them.

Several “non-dog” members have also signed up to come and practise their fast action dog photography. We now have enough dogs coming but we do have space for another 2 non-dog photographers. If you would like to come (and haven’t already signed up) please let me know ASAP; first come, first served.

NB All attendees must have pre-registered and signed the T&Cs at least 24 hours before the event.

It is weather dependant. As I write the forecast is excellent; 22C, sunny intervals and a gentle breeze. However attendees need to watch their emails on the day before the event of it being cancelled.
