Upminster Camera club has launched its new programme for the next year, and has a number of lectures, exhibitions and competitions to excite happy snappers!

The club meets at Cranham Community Association, Marlborough Gardens and a few weeks ago members took part in its annual safari – which is a treasure hunt of photos.

In small groups they headed out to a secret location – which can be anywhere within 50 miles of Upminster – and followed a number of clues to take photos of street views, wildlife and a club member at work, to name just a few.

The 10 photographs from each group will now be judged and a winner will be announced in November.

Club member Andrew Brett, said that it is another exciting year for the club, especially with the Upminster People 2018 project.

This is where the group is aiming to take 1,000 photographs of “everyday life” from shopping and socialising to people getting their hair cut, or just enjoying a pint at the pub.

They are half-way through the project that will be shown in a six-week exhibition at Havering Museum in High Street, Romford next year.

Other highlights over the summer include a talk from specialist photographer, Pauline Fowler and a summer social evening at the end of July.
