The summer activities are an informal arrangement of photographic activities which are organised outside of the normal club calendar.
These casual, summer group meetings include local events, nature reserves, Photoshop evenings, sporting events and days out further afield. They are not usually instruction evenings although most members are more than happy to offer advice when asked.
A typical evening might be to meet at the car park of a nature reserve at 6.30 pm or 7 pm. After a few minutes discussion the group sets off, probably dividing up into small groups of 2 or 3, and we spend the next two hours photographing or just enjoying the reserve. At a prearranged time we meet back up or find our way to the local pub.
All BCC members, non-photographic partners and non-members or potential members are welcome to most events, a few are for members only.
There may be a small charge to cover costs where applicable (e.g village hall hire) and should the event require an entry fee this will be the photographer’s responsibility
