Last summer the club held a Landscape Workshop based on the North Coast. It was run by John Miskelly (www.johnmiskelly.co.uk). Unfortunately only a handful of members were able to attend, so this year the committee has decided to run the workshop in Fermanagh.
John is a great landscape photographer and this is an opportunity to learn from him without the expense of travel or accommodation. We have booked him for Saturday 7th June 2014 with an option for the following day should there be enough demand. At this stage it is difficult to be exact on cost but it is anticipated that it will be in the range of £25 – £45 per person depending on numbers. The club will be subsidising part of the cost.
A provisional programme would be meeting mid morning, doing 2 or 3 locations in the area, evening meal and discussion and then finishing up with a sunset shoot.
Although June next year seems a long way off we need to get this organised as soon as possible so I am asking members to contact me by email or phone if they are interested in order that I can collate details and firm up the cost. I will be looking for a final commitment and deposits by the end of January.

The complex is situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Lagan Valley Country Park in South Belfast. The private members club is only a short 20 minute drive from George Best City Airport and a 10 minute drive from the city centre.
The club has excellent bar and restaurant facilities which we would encourage all participants to use. There is wheelchair access to the facilities.
Just a reminder that we will be meeting at 8pm in the BT/Castle car park. Please bring a tripod if you have one, as well as your camera of course! The forecast is good but even if it rains we will still go ahead – good images can be captured in any weather. New members will be paired with more experienced members (if they so wish) and we will capture Enniskillen by night!
EPS member David Robertson extends a cordial invitation to all members to view his forthcoming exhibition at the library.
