Founded in 1888, and counting eminent Brechin artist and photographer David Waterson amongst it original members, Brechin Photographic Society continues to attract members from as far away as Carnoustie and Laurencekirk, Kirriemuir and Montrose.
With around 40 members the club’s 2011 – 2012 programme endeavours to address all abilities and forms of photography in this digital age, whether the image was taken with the latest smart phone, a pocket compact or an expensive single lens reflex.
Recent legs of the club’s annual print competition have seen winning images on “Animals” from Leslie Crane (Beginners), Iain McLachlan (Intermediate) and James Anderson (Advanced) and “A Song” from Archie Milne (Beginners), Jean Wigglesworth (Intermediate) and Frank Horrocks (Advanced).
This Tuesday evening well known Stonehaven author and photographer Andy Hall gave a talk on the “Art of Photography” as demonstrated on his popular weekend courses and next week guest judge Joan Roy will give her comments on the members efforts to capture interesting aspects of “Buildings of Angus and the Mearns”
The club meets in St. Andrews Church Hall at 7.15 pm each Tuesday evening and new members are always most welcome.
