All outings are weather permitting. If we experience inclement weather, we withdraw to the Golden Cross in Saunderton for some indoor photography /Photoshop / Lightroom. The pub allow us to use the room for no cost and open early to let us in. It is therefore polite to buy a coffee or two and maybe a group lunch would be nice in the garden one day?
The Golden Cross is in Saunderton (on the main A4010, between Risborough and West Wycombe), at 10am till noon.
The pub allow us the use of a large room for no cost, so we tend to all buy a couple of coffee’s.
Sometimes we stay in the pub and share knowledge and chat over a coffee, or have a table top shoot and we go out with our cameras to venues suggested by the group. All levels welcome, we are a very supportive group.
We have a Facebook group called PRPS Society Snappers. Please send a friend request if you want to join. You do not have to come on Wednesdays, anyone can join and share images.
