Photo Opportunities

Saturday 10 November  – Lord Mayor’s Show

Annual parade through the streets of the City of London by the new Lord Mayor.

The Brand Marketing Assistant for Waterstones contacted the Club as they preparing to refurbish their Bromley Store and they are looking to source large, high-resolution images of local landmarks to use as a permanent wall decoration for the shop’s re-launch.   They will provide credits to the photos and she is open to discuss payments for images that may be used. Images that we are looking for include, Down House, Bromley Civic Centre, the Churchill Theatre and possibly the Church of St Peter and Paul.  I am not sure when they need photos by but will let you know as soon as I do.

Photographic Holidays

Paxos Spring Photography Week:  13 – 20 MAY 2013 – Early Booking Offer

Paxos is a beautiful island and, with its pretty villages, stunning scenery and wonderfully clear light, it’s hard to imagine a more inspiring location for a photography holiday. On the West coast there are dramatic cliffs and sea caves, while on the East coast there are pretty, unspoilt villages and scenic bays; much of the island is covered in olive groves which in Spring are carpeted with a myriad of wild flowers.  If you book the 2013 ‘Spring Photography Week’ there is a special price of £795 per person (instead of the usual £845) if you do so by 30 November. We will also give groups of four or more who book together an additional 5% discount.  You can find full details of the holiday and an on-line booking form at, or contact Margaret by phone (01444 258048) or email (
