New City Photographic Society WIN Camera Club of the Year!
On Friday 2nd June New City Photographic Society, Milton Keynes longest running Camera Club, took part in the final of Photography News Camera Club of the Year Competition, sponsored by Fujifilm.
Having won the first of the qualifying rounds, New City Photographic Society sent a team of four photographers to Royal Ordnance Depot in Weedon Bec, to take part in 5 photographic scenarios using Fujifilm’s latest equipment with the goal of bringing home the title.
The team, made up of Jamie White, Colin Mill, Mark Jones, and Dave Cromack, had one hour per scenario to style the model, set-up the shot, and take and process the image before submitting to the Photography News team.
Club Chair David Phillips said “We’re the longest running camera club in Milton Keynes, so it was a tremendous pleasure and great testament to the quality of our members to be able to send a team to this competition. We’re all very proud to bring home the cup!”.
