“Havering Museum formed a photographic club in 2012 following on from a six week workshop, Fun With Photography.

“The workshops were so successful that people did not want to stop enjoying their photography and they asked to continue. Thus, a Havering Museum photographic club was formed for them.

“The emphasis is to have fun while enhancing one’s skills, by sharing and learning new photographic tips for brilliant photographs.

“Being a small group, we don’t have beginners or advanced photographers, but simply photographers. Members contribute photos and talk about them at the meetings.

“This allows individuals to develop their skills without the pressure of trying to move up the bandings. On September 7 2013, the club launched their first exhibition at the museum which was a great success and was viewed by over 600 people.

“The monthly meetings cost £5 for two hour sessions, which include tea and cake. Periodically, workshops are held on specific topics and then a charge of £7.50 is requested.

“The museum is a registered charity and run by volunteers, so all income generated helps to maintain the museum and put on events.”
