A team from the society took part in the final of the magazine’s Camera Club of the Year Competition, sponsored by Fujifilm, on Friday, June 2.

Having won more than one of the earlier qualifying rounds, the society sent a team of four amateur photographers to the Royal Ordnance Depot in Weedon Bec where the final took place.

They had to take part in five photographic scenarios using Fujifilm’s latest equipment with the goal of bringing home the title.

The team, made up of Jamie White, Colin Mill, Mark Jones and Dave Cromack, had one hour per scenario to style the model, set up the shot, and take and process the image before submitting to the Photography News team.

“We’re all very proud to bring home the cup.”

New City Photographic Society meet every Thursday during the winter season at Christ Church Hall at Stantonbury Campus.
