21/22 season has started

Our 2021/22 Season has started. On Monday 6th Sept we met at the Ellesmere Port Boat Museum carpark at 7:30pm for some low light photography and some Paining with Light photography. It was a warm evening with a nice sunset. A large turnout. Lovely to meet old friends. Also several new members. We are now meeting on Zoom until the end of December.

Successful season

We have just finished our 2020 /21 season. We have not been able to meet in our normal meeting room (President's lounge of the Whitby Club). Instead we have held weekly Zoom meetings on Monday evenings. All well organised. Digital competitions, external speakers and members' meetings. We will hold several summer informal meetings. The next season will start on Monday 6th September 2021. We are assuming we will be meeting on Zoom. As soon as we are allowed, we will hold "normal" meetings in the Whitby Club.

Good News!

Our Club is running regular Monday evening Zoom meetings. We have been doing this since mid Sept 2020. We have bought our own Zoom account so we organise and run our own zoom meetings every Monday evening. These are a mixture of outside lecturers from various parts of the UK and talks by members. We are also running monthly competitions, with digital entries (PDIs). These competitions are judged on Zoom so we can see the images and listen to the comments, and scores, by the judge. The number of members attending our meetings is slowly increasing - so a good sign.
You can see our syllabus on this website (using the button at the top of the page) to see the subject of each meeting. Please take a look.

Please also visit our facebook page (Ellesmere Port Photographic Society) HERE where you can see what our members are doing and see recent images.

Club Secretary Statement

Dear Members,

There is a fast changing situation with regards to Covid19 (Coronavirus).
Other Photo clubs and many other organisations have cancelled their meetings for the rest of their seasons, Chester and Mold Photo clubs for example.
Reluctantly therefore the committee have decided that we cannot go ahead with meetings and the rest of the season is cancelled.
I know some, myself included, may have put a lot of work into their preparations for the annual competition, this will be rescheduled into the next season.
So this decision is a hard one to make, many members though have contacted me and said that they would not be attending.
Please understand that a very difficult decision has been made under very unusual circumstances.

Hoping to see you all in September, best wishes and stay safe.

Regards
Michael Cox
EPPS Secretary
