Amateur snappers will be showcasing their work at the Lytham St Annes Photographic Society’s annual Photoshow which begins on Saturday.
The event takes place at the Drive Methodist Church on Clifton Drive, St Annes, until August 15 from 10am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 5pm on Saturday (closed Sunday).
Admission is free, with donations welcome.
This year will mark the 67th anniversary of the club’s annual exhibition which is hoping to attract more than 1,000 visitors. On display this year are more than 500 prints and digital images taken by the members which range from landscape and nature to people and portraits.
The club’s youngest member, Jessica Cuff, aged 12, who won this year’s beginners section, said: “I’m really proud to have won this year’s beginners section and have learned so much since joining the club. All the members have been helpful.”
Formed in 1948 with in excess of 130 members, the society is one of the largest and most active clubs in the North West.
The club meets every Thursday at The Pensioners’ Hall on St Albans Road in St Annes, where members learn more about photography from guest speakers, tutorials and also have the opportunity to take part in a number of internal competitions.
Members range in age from Jessica at aged 12, to others who are aged over 90.
