 North Berwick Photographic Society

North Berwick Photographic Society meets in the Abbey Church Hall in Church Road, North Berwick, East Lothian. Meetings are every second Thursday from September to April. We also have a varied range of club outings from May to September.

A talk, "My Photography Journey", by Dylan Nardini, was our third meeting. Dylan's journey to and from work, at work as a train driver and on family outings gave him lots of inspiration for some of the best Scottish landscape photography we've seen. Early morning and winter are particular favourites of Dylan's with plenty great snow and evocative mist scenes.

For our fourth meeting of the season we'd invited Midlothian Camera Club to a match-an-image where we intended to make amends for our narrow defeat against them last year away. There were so many visiting club supporters we even had to move to a larger hall to accommodate us all. Honestly, we didn't bribe our judge Stephen Lipton who gave North Berwick the result we deserved.

Our recent assignment, "Forms in Nature", was judged by Gordon Scott 'live' on the night. Amelia Gatacre's "Poggio Conte" was the winner, Ian Goodall's "Gannet's First Flight" runner up and Neil Spowart's "Hills" third. Three images were also highly commended: "Wild Orchid Flower Spike" by Alastair White, "Gannet Seaweed" by Ian Goodall and "Stalking" by Ian McDougall.

Earlier in 2017 we participated for the first time in the annual inter-club competition held at the National Mining Museum. Karen Stout won best overall image in this 9-club competition and Val Stuart won the best PDI to complete a spectacular double for North Berwick.
