Welcome to Hexham and District Photographic Society, founded in 1947 by Donald Low
Seventy years on our friendly membership comprises a range of abilities from beginners, to accredited and professional photographers, they cover a broad spectrum of photographic interests, including (but not limited to): landscape, portraiture, sport, wildlife, street, documentary and abstract photography. The majority of our members have made the move to digital photography, however there are still some keen film users among us.
Join us for our end of season keynote speech & presentation night, with the famed British explorer, Conrad Dickinson.
Conrad is a proud born and bred Northumbrian, who, apart from a spell as an Army Officer (specializing in Arctic Warfare) has spent the majority of his working career in the North East; successfully building his family business. However, he is probably better known for having put the North East and Britain on the map with his Polar Expeditions.
He is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and he has a passion for wildlife and photography. He is also an ambassador and patron for the Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
This event is FREE to enter, with a request for donations on the night to the Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Conrad speak in his home town!”
