Our 2020/21 season started in September but as the ongoing Covid restrictions prevent us from meeting in a group, we are running our programme as weekly online sessions on Tuesdays at 7.30. Full details of our programme and how to join a meeting are on the THIS SEASON page.
We warmly welcome new members. You can join us through the links below – “Thinking of joining” – or find out more about our club through the CONTACT US link above.

The Lionel Bloodworth Creative Challenge 2021
This winner of this year’s Lionel Bloodworth Creative Challenge is Eugene Stevenson, for his image ‘One Exposure, Two Events’.
The annual competition was established in memory of Lionel Bloodworth, who died in 2013, aged 61. During his years at the club he developed a passion for creative photography and transmitted his enthusiasm to fellow club members by initiating the Creative Special Interest Group.
This year’s competition was judged by club members during one of the club’s online Tuesday evening meetings, held using Zoom conferencing software.
To achieve the image of an exploding light bulb, Eugene used a crossbow – which he made specially for photographic projects – to fire a dart at the bulb. A sensor and a programmable micro-controller fired the high-speed flash at the instant the dart hit the bulb.
As if that wasn’t complicated enough, Eugene also attached a relay to the crossbow to illuminate the bulb’s filament a fraction of a second after the dart’s impact. With the camera shutter open for two seconds, the camera sensor captured the filament (non-illuminated) at the moment of impact and after impact (illuminated) – hence the image’s title.
