Introduction to Inspire Photography Club
Inspire Photography Club is a small group of friendly enthusiasts who run the club on a co-operative basis and new members of any level or ability are welcome to join us.
Each month we try to have a mixture of activities including speakers, workshops and competition nights.
During the summer months we have evening field trips to local places of photographic interest.
Most members have a Digital SLR camera but this not essential if you wish to learn and progress further.
The Club meets weekly on a Thursday evening in Kingsthorpe.
Meetings start at 7.30pm unless otherwise stated.
Membership runs from January to December with subs to be paid by the end of February.
To be a full member of the club the annual subscription is £60.00. This entitles full members to attend all weekly events published on the club’s “Programme of Events” free of charge unless specifically stated in the Programme for certain special events.
£30.00 per year plus £5.00 for each session attended
With regards to collecting the £5.00 attendance fee, the associate member will be expected to seek out Ian Powell (Treasurer) and pay him. In the event that Ian Powell is not in attendance that week please pay either Dave Simpson, John O’Reilly, Sue O’Reilly, Ian Costello or Bob Mason.
Note: Subject to the approval at the 2020 AGM It is anticipated that the Associate Member Category will be removed altogether in 2021.
Potential New Members
Members may invite potential new members free of charge for any workshop, Competition or summer break week. Any speaker events will be charged at the advertised rate for non-members.
It is expected that after two visits potential new members will seek full membership.
No new Associate Members will be accepted.
Charges will be on a pro-rata basis for the remainder of the year (2019 = £1.20 per week).
Each month we aim to have a mixture of workshops, speakers, competitions and member led sessions.
During the summer months (June-August) we have a programme of evening field trips to local places of photographic interest.
Details of programme events are publicised on the Inspire Facebook page.
All members have access to this.

Affiliations and Collaboration’s
It is proposed that during 2020 Inspire Photography Club will join the Midland Counties Photographic Federation. This will give access to a larger pool of speakers, knowledge and improved advertising.
From 2020 we shall collaborate informally with three other Northamptonshire Clubs – West Haddon , Spratton and Aperture (Little Brington). This will increase our pool of knowledge and will allow us to stage joint events, particularly where it would be uneconomical for one small club to do so.
