What’s On


This Week at SPS

On Thursday 14th November, we have a talk by Bill Allsopp, LRPS. British Landscapes in colour and mono – an evening’s tour around Britain, to get your juices flowing for trips to the beautiful areas offered by our country. Lots of tips on techniques for landscape photography; hopefully we will all learn something.
