    What's Happening    (updated 26/11/2020)

  Bradford Abbas Shield 2020:   A great 'Water' effort by our members; we ended up in a creditable 3rd place behind 2nd place Wincanton Camera Club and the winners Yeovil Camera Club. Congratulations to them. Congratulations as well to all whose photographs made up our entry - particularly David Simpson for 'The Incoming Tide' our top scorer with 19/20 from the judge. (Click on any image in the slideshow to see it enlarged).

  Club Meetings:   For the time being the only way we are able to hold meetings is via Zoom: we will continue to 'meet' monthly with a programme of guest speakers. Visitors are welcome to join us for these evenings - please e-mail for further details. If you are unfamiliar with using Zoom, click here for a quick guide (opens in a pop-up window). Meanwhile our Monthly Challenges and Annual Exhibition continue to run on-line.

  SP Calendar 2021:   The calendar is on sale in SP Post Office, N & D News, Grants of Somerset and Tim's Wines. A real bargain at £7! Congratulations to the photographers featured and to James McInnes for bringing it all to publication.
Bradford Abbas images 2020 - 'Water'

  January 13th 2021   Our guest speaker is Devon-based photographer Nigel Hicks with an evening of "Landscape Photography".

Click the graphic to visit Nigel's terrific gallery of landscape images.

  February 3rd 2021   This evening we have Daniel Bridges giving his "10 Top Tips for Photography" talk. Dan describes his talk as “Not too technical, but does cover the benefits of coming off auto. Much more though on various techniques to see things differently and improve compositions, which ultimately is far more important than what aperture value you're using in most cases”.

    South Petherton Calendar 2021

The SPPS South Petherton Calendar has become something of an institution over the years, and very well supported by sales it is too. Many thanks to the photographers who provided images this year of South Petherton and the TA13 area around: Joan Apps, Steve Cooper, Pam Goodey, Steve Harrison, James McInnes, John Nicholson, Jan Stanton and Jenny Wade - and to the editor, James McInnes.

2022 Calendar We are always looking for fresh images to include in the next edition of the calendar. As you take them throughout the year, please send your S.Petherton/TA13 images for collation and possible selection to .

    Monthly Photo Challenges

Each month the club members are set a photo challenge to produce digital images on a set topic. The images are then reviewed at a subsequent club night and voted on to select the winner (who gets a round of applause and our heartfelt admiration).
