10th January - Members Sequences
A chance to show your latest work for constructive comments and help.

24th January - An Exchange of Sequences
With the
Cleethorpes AV Group & Northern Ireland AV Group

Some club members do not travel to other events & competitions, so rarely see work outside of their own club. The idea of the exchange is to see work produced by different regions and to receive feedback. This is not a competition or to show new or the 'best' work from the club, but that from a range of members at all levels. It is more like a 'Member’s Sequence Evening' where the work is discussed & constructive comments made.
This way each Group will benefit from the comments & see a range of work at all levels from different areas.

7th February - An Evening With Tony Collinson LRPS DPAGB
Tony has been involved with AV since the days of Twin Projectors and the Immatronic fade unit when I, along with a colleague presented shows to many of the camera clubs in the YPU area.
I have been producing AV’s digitally for some years now and tend to create documentary style sequences. The travel and research involved in this style of work I find both challenging and rewarding. I also enjoy photographing Rare Birds and Steam Trains.
