Member's News


Tony Hallam-Cutler has been awarded Joint 2nd Place in Photographer of the Year at 'Session Days' for his image 'Call That A Feast, I Want More'. Very well done Tony and well deserved for an excellent image:

Our very own Linda Biggs was asked to write an article for the member profile section of 'In Focus' the magazine of The Disabled Photographer's Society of which Linda is a proud member.

In it Linda describes how she has adapted her photography to her circumstances and there are great examples of her work.

It is lovely to read about Linda's photographic experience and journey in her own words.


Do please read this excellent article, it can be accessed in the magazine HERE.

Exhibition Crystal Peaks 

Another successful exhibition was held from 9th to 30th October 2023 at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre. 


We really enjoyed showing our prints, and talking to anyone about all things photographic.

We are very grateful to Crystal Peaks for giving us this opportunity to showcase our club again. We are especially grateful to all those who took the time to stop, looked at our images, and chatted with us - some of whom have gone on to join the club and are very welcome indeed.

Hopefully, we will do the same next year - watch this space !

Pop Up Exhibition at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre

Our exhibition ran until 2nd November 2022 and we were allocated a prime spot     on the first floor near the lifts and escalator.

On Saturday 22nd October we had an Open Day where the public were welcome to come inside the shop in Crystal Peaks and see more of our images.   Various club members were available to chat, and we were happy to answer questions and indulge in photography talk.

We hope to have another exhibition at Crystal Peaks in 2023, same format as last year, and as always with Westfield Photographic Club, you'll be given the warmest of welcomes.

Past Club News

A while ago, several of our members set out on what turned out to be a long, sometimes difficult and sometimes emotional journey, towards some Awards for Photographic Merit(APM's).

All the members who went for awards deserve huge recognotion and congratulations as their efforts really put our club on the map.  The months were filled with shooting new genres, way outside many of our comfort zones.  The knowledge gained in post processing was vast - even after a difficult few months, lots of knowledge was gained.


4 of our members were successful in their bids.  So very many congratulations to:

Alex Kryz LRPS

Annette Crook CPAGB


John Rutherford CPAGB

Marj Freeston BPE1*

Tony Hallam-Cutler CPAGB
