The new Athlone Photography Club will host a fundraising quiz in The Bounty, Coosan on Wednesday December 4.
Founded in the summer of 2013, the newly formed club has 15 members, all photography enthusiasts who meet regularly - oganising photo shoots and capturing some of the beauty of the town. It was founded as a learning forum for anyone with an interest in photography.
The club members meet ever second Wednesday in Abbey Road Studios in St Mary’s Hall (Scouts Den ) at 7.30pm. The club runs a varied programme throughout the year, generally from September through to June.
They take a very hands-on approach to learning and improving technique with a mixture of guest speakers, talks, workshops, challenges, and competitions to encourage members to try new things, learn new skills, and have fun along the way.
There is a great mixture of photographers in the club from beginners to professionals, with new people joining each week.
If you have an interest in photography, would like to improve your skills, or even discuss the ins and outs of the world of photography, please come along; new members are always welcome.
The table quiz starts at 8pm on December 4 with a table of four costing €40. There will be plenty of fun on the night and some great prizes!
