A busy start to the new season

It’s been quite a busy start to the new season with a slew of speakers, competitions and club nights already passed. We’ve been treated to fantatsic talks by Andy Hall, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert, David Lintern and Martin Weir. Thanks to Scott Russell gave us a detailed overview of new Adobe software. Congratulations to all the winners so far in the 4-on-a-board, Digital Knockout and League 1 competitions (the latter very ably judged by Nicola Shepherd). The club also tied first place in the Perthshire Alliance competition back in October.

There’s loads more good things to come this side of Christmas too: Colin Hulley or Permajet will be gudining us through colour management, printing and paper choice on Nov 30th; club veterans John and Robert will share some of their work on Dec 7th and Stewart Dodd judges the thackeray and Creative Digital competitions on Dec 14th.  See you all there!

New Season, New Syllabus!

Our 2017-2018 season is about to begin on Thursday 14th September in the Church Centre Kinross, at 19:30.  We’d love to see you there!

We will be previewing the Syllabus for the year ahead, hearing about the Clubs plans for the year, and you’ll have the chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. We look forward to seeing on the 14th or any subsequent Thursday night.

The new syllabus is available on the Syllabus page.

Joint evening with SWT – Tracey Dixon

The 23rd March is our annual joint evening with the Scottish Wildlife Trust, which will be in the Thistle Hotel, Milnathort.

The speaker will be Tracey Dixon who is a zoology graduate of the University of Dundee and now works as Visualization & GIS Officer for the School of Social Sciences. Since Tracey first picked up a camera for a 2002 trip to the Arctic, her photos have featured in a range of projects, from Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Eric Chivian & Aaron Bernstein’s “Sustaining Life How Human Health Depends on Biodiversity” to the definitive guide to squirrels of the world! She enjoys extended off-track bush walking expeditions and has also had photos reach the semi-final of the NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
