Club Nights
I've decided to give the PED Club Nights another go, this time with a bit more structure to the evening. Hence, one evening a month, normally on the first Wednesdays or Thursdays ( alternating) in the month. Anyone who has attended or is due to attend a PED is most welcome to join us.

At each of the meetings we will have a monthly print competition - one month will be open (category) and the next will be a subject (linked to the Monthly Project Group on FB), and they will alternate. Everyone who is at the evening will get a chance to judge the images.

Maximum print size is A3.

The aim is that this will encourage people to print more images, as well as to participate in the FB group pages more.

Next we'll have a photo critique section - bring along (up to) 5 images that'll will be displayed on the big screen and (constructively) critiqued.

In addition we'll have a quick Q&A session where if you have anything you're not sure about (ideally photo related!).... And then also a discussion on upcoming PED's and suggestions for new events.

Oh yes, we're also going to have Multi Coloured Swap Shop... (anyone under 40 probably may not get the reference). If you have anything you don't need, want to give away, swap, sell, bring it along. Photo related or not.

Combine this with informal chatter, food, drink and we should easily fill up 2-3 hours in a constructive and fun way.

For dates please see the events page.

Location is currently at The Bell Inn. We have our own room, complete with television to display photos on.

It's really easy to find, just exit off junction 1 on the M27 and take the Fordingbridge road. You'll find the hotel just a mile up the road on the right. There is plenty of parking.

This is me, Michael Palmer.  I run Photo Experience Days.  I've been a full time photographer for nearly 10 years, and in the 5 years  I've been running the PED's there have been over 500 different events.
Photo Experience Day Review
"I have attended many of Michael Palmers PED events over the past 2 years, ranging from informal socials wandering around London to more structured events such as Long Exposure, Wire wool and Light Painting events. I have improved my photography greatly during that timeframe, not just switching from Auto to Manual, but the more important aspect of composition of the subject matter. The events are educational and enjoyable but done in an informal setting without the 'pomp & ceremony' that other professionals seem to adopt.   Highly recommended."
