2020/21 Syllabus

2020/21 Syllabus

Alba Photographic Society hosts a varied syllabus which includes external and internal competitions, guest speakers, practical tuition nights and social evenings.


Interested in joining?

No problem. Come along on any of our club evenings and see what we can offer you. Our friendly members are only too willing to help with any queries you may have. Why not even bring a friend along for the evening. Your first two visits are free, though you would be expected to join thereafter.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our 2020 syllabus is proving more difficult than usual to organise this year. Our committee are working hard to overcome this as best they can. It is envisaged that a series of Zoom meetings as well as outdoor meetings will be organised for most of this season. Hopefully however this situation might change at a later date into our season.

Please note that these events are subject to change at very short notice.
