Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows of a photographic club in Shropshire, that mainly consists of the younger generation (myself!)

It's really hard to find other people around my age of 17 who are into photography as much as me.

Any information will be much appreciated,


Cheers!

Why restrict it to the younger generation Owen? You might learn more from some of us old 'uns and some of are almost cool

It would just be nice to enjoy it with some other people around my age!

Of course id be happy spending time with older generations, at work, Im part of the Ricoh Photographic Society. Which is a sea of grey & white hair!

Ive learnt alot from them, and to be honest, they can be just as immature as me! it would be good meeting a few people from here too

Age is an illusion, it's being open minded that counts, but you're unlikely to find a very young photographic society. It's just the way it seems to be. We have some younger members at ADAPS, but Atherton is a bit far from where you are.
Best regards, John

I don't know their age range but I've seen some very impressive work done by Wrekin Arts members. We've had a few of them over to our club in Stafford to give lectures. They may be worth a look if you haven't done so already. They are based in Wellington.

Cheers,

The Wrekin Arts PS is nationally renowned with some very well known photographers among its members. Any young person joining this society, which is on your doorstep, could learn a lot from its elder statesmen. It runs an annual international photo exhibition.
