The Lake Viñuela Photograghic Club was previously known as the El Valle Asociación Photo Group and was formed in June 2008 by a nucleus of ten members from that group. In order to not contravene the rules of the Asociación and to accommodate interest from other photographers that were not their members, the group decided to become an independent organisation in February 2012.
The club has differing skill levels, from novice to the more proficient. All are welcome as everyone has one thing in common, a passion for photography and a desire to improve their technique in the company of others. Whether you have a basic compact digital camera or top-of-the-range DSLR is irrelevant, it is all about taking better photographs.
We meet on the first Thursday of every month at 10:30am at the Restaurante La Era in Puente don Manuel. As the meeting venue can change at any time, anyone wishing to attend a meeting for the first time should contact Doug Poplett (Club Chairman) beforehand.
Doug can be contacted by e-mail at Doug Poplett or by using the Contact Us link in the main menu.
Meetings consist of the business of the day which is normally very brief, followed by the critiquing of photographs taken for our monthly challenges. We also supplement meetings with the occasional field trip to places of local interest.
