Welcome Evening at the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group on Friday 15th September

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS IN YOUR CLUB
We’re a varied lot, us photographers – portrait, landscape, creative…. but we have one thing in common – we’re all after that award-winning image. Then of course there’s the couple in the corner who seem to have a slightly different agenda – you know, the ‘Audio Visual’ workers! Most clubs have one or two AV’ers, often working in semi-isolation. 

This is why in 1993 the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group was formed where like-minded photographers, with an interest in AV could meet to exchange ideas and expertise. Now 25 years later the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group is still welcoming new members.
