Our first meeting of the year is in February on Wednesday the 20th at 7:30 pm (under the Stirling Club on Stirling Terrace). So why not come along and see what we are all about and let us motivate you through your photographic adventure. We can't wait to meet you and all of the amazing photos you'll take in 2019.
