The Group

We all have a passion for printing our images. The last stage of any image is holding in your hand. The group meet twice a month at my studio. We have a limited number of members due to space. The meetings are lead by the groups members, nights can be anything photographically based. Many members share skills, we have speakers, photoshoots and summer meetings. we also have a critique night, the member talks turns to run the night.. Two unmounted prints and one person has first critique then any other comments are added. The owner of the print then adds any questions relating to the print. At the end of the night the person who runs the night awards The Trophy, three are shortlisted and the final choice is given the Trophy. It’s a bit of fun but highly sorted after by the group members. We all have different skills, interests and passions in their photographic choices. The members all enter National Print Exhibitions and many of them are on the L&CPU Judging List & PAGB Judging List. Members can enter the competitions each month but only with new images. SRGB is simply a colour space and seemed a simple name for the group. We are members of the L&CPU. Check out the members Webpages and recent success by clicking on the links. View the members webpages by clicking on their photo.

The Group are all members of other photographic societies in the area. There is a maximum of sixteen members due to the room size. We are not a competition group for federation events but people who enjoy photography and want to share our skills and thoughts in a small group.. By doing this we help others in our clubs.
