How does it work?
6 monthly meetings at the pub
Meeting in the pub makes this course quite unique, fun and social.
Creative assignments set every month
These are designed to push you out of your comfort zone to expand your creativity and technical skill. I’ll bring books by photographers relevant to the assignment to help inspire you.
Feedback on your photos
Every month you will receive screencast video feedback on your 5 submitted photographs.
Prints of your photographs
Every month you will receive your 5 submitted photos as 6×4 inch sized prints.
The Commended Print
Every month I choose 1 photo that really caught my eye be produced as a large 18×12 inch print, this will be given to the photographer to keep.
Online support via the Closed Facebook Group
Every member will be invited to a private Facebook Group for Photoclub in the Pub members. This is a good place to come and bounce ideas around, share photos and ask questions.

Every year I will be curating an exhibition of work by Photoclub in the Pub members. Everyone will have a chance of being included for a fee to cover costs.

PHOTOCLUB IN THE PUB (LEWES)
I have been participating in this 6-month course since August 2012 and have found it to be both fun and inspiring.
Andrew is very approachable and is able to cater for all abilities (I am at the beginner end of the spectrum).
The class is quite informal and we share images with classmates at each meeting which is really interesting.
As the meetings are monthly, it leaves time to do each of the varied 'tasks' even if you have a busy schedule. The private Facebook Group gives a sense of community between meetings and you can post for feedback on photos or to ask advice. Everyone is friendly.
I am learning a lot but feel like it is at a pace dictated by my own interests and time.
PHOTOCLUB IN THE PUB (ERIDGE)
I took one of Andy's six month Photoclub in the pub courses and really enjoyed it. I have only dabbled in photography and don't even have a fancy camera, but that didn't matter; Andrew sets assignments that puts you out of your comfort zone and forces you to take pictures that you would never otherwise think of taking. For that reason alone it is great; really makes you think and see things in a different way.
The feedback was always really useful and we could learn as much of the technical side of things as we wanted.
Meeting in the pub once a month is a great idea as it makes it all less formal and easy to talk about the assignment, and photography in general.
I would recommend this course to anyone, whether you are a total beginner or an experienced photographer.
PHOTOCLUB IN THE PUB (ERIDGE & LEWES)
Great club. Lots of practical advice and inspiration.
I enjoyed the monthly tasks which were supported by excellent source material. A really inspiring alternative to conventional camera clubs I have been to.
