Annual Exhibition - Brechin Town House Museum

Brechin Photographic Society are preparing to hold their annual exhibition, which will run from the 4th May - 2nd June, in the Town House Museum, Brechin. WE NEED YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE EXHIBITION!! With only two club nights left this season, we ideally need your images by the 9th April, and a box will be provided at the club on the 2nd and the 9th for you to drop off your prints. Remember to mark your name and the title on the print in the normal way, and labels will be made for them for the exhibition. A scene from last years' exhibition (the 130th anniversary of the club) Each member is invited to submit up to two prints for the exhibition. The club owns picture frames that were made

Thank You!!

Thank you to everyone who came along to the AGM last night, which we got over and done with in record time, enabling us to move onto the annual prize giving and then our inaugural club auction and raffle.

Season Review 2018-19

With the AGM upon us on Tuesday night, the season will officially end. However, for this season we have at least two more club nights after the AGM, and from 2019-20 the AGM will be moved out two weeks to lengthen the season. Most camera clubs run through to mid April at least, so we felt we should do so also. With the prize giving on Tuesday though, it seems appropriate to have a look back over the season. It also provides an opportunity to thank Ken Ness in particular, for the work he put in preparing the programme for this season. It was unfortunate that Ken had to stand down as president midway through the season, but other commitments meant it was the right move. I was, and remain,

All the Winners - News Update!

The Angus Cup and John Senior Trophy brings the curtain down an a season of club competitions - and it's been a great season. The ever improving standard of photography in the club was again underlined by the performance at the inter-club level. As we did last season, we have prepared a slide show of the winning images from the season. This will be displayed as a looping slideshow at the club's exhibition in the Town House Museum in May. This week, on the 19th March, we have the second half of the President's 12 challenge, which should be great entertainment. Should we have time left over, we also have a selection of images from the Stonehaven outing that we can look through too. We will

John Senior Trophy success again!

Thank you to all those who came along last night to enjoy the Angus Cup and John Senior Trophy, despite awful weather and traffic problems. There is no question that the standard of photography on display was top drawer, and both competitions were closely fought. Brechin came SO close to winning both, but fell short by a single point to Mearns in the Angus Cup (digital). The John Senior Trophy (prints) was a different matter, with a brilliant score of 126 from a possible 140 enough to beat Mearns and retain the trophy. A 20 for Andy Hayes's 'Learning to Hunt' started the evening off brilliantly, and 19's for Dennis Forman and Beryl Woodger for 'Blue Tit' and 'Pasque Flower', and an 18 for

Angus Cup and John Senior Trophy

Tomorrow night we are at the Cathedral Hall in Brechin for the Angus Cup and John Senior Trophy. Please note that this is a 7pm sharp start, so be there in plenty of time to get a good seat! Carnoustie Photo Group are hosting the competition this year, with Carnoustie Camera Club, Kirriemuir Photography Club, Mearns Camera Club and Brechin all competing for the trophies. Last year Brechin won the John Senior Trophy for prints, and Mearns won the Angus Cup for digital. Each club has 7 prints and 7 digital images, which will be judged by Stan Farrow FRPS DPAGB EFIAP, who very kindly stepped in at the last minute to save the competition. It promises to be a great night, and the standard of ph
