Stamford and Rutland Photographic Society is showcasing some of its best work in a new exhibition at Rutland County Museum, running until Saturday 25th January 2020.

The society (formerly known as Stamford Photographic Society) was set up in 1996. It gives local photographers of all abilities the chance to share their knowledge and experience, as well as an opportunity to hone their skills.

The exhibition at Rutland County Museum is made up of landscape and portrait photos taken by members of the Stamford and Rutland Photographic Society over the past year.

The society draws its members from a wide area and they meet in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Competitions on specific themes are held at their monthly meetings and are usually judged by the members themselves. Diverse topics such as ‘Speed’, ‘Emotion’, ‘Abstract’ and ‘Yellow’ have been tackled in the past. 

Photo shoots are organised throughout the year and exhibitions are also held to showcase members’ work.

Visitors and new members are always most welcome. For more information, please visit the Stamford and Rutland Photographic Society website

Rutland County Museum is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm and entry is FREE for visitors of all ages.
