Digital Photography Group


The Digital Photography Group in Haddenham U3A does not now meet regularly, but Haddenham U3A members may continue to attend the Greater Thame U3A Photography Group, under an arrangement which pre-dated the establishment of our own group.

Greater Thame U3A Photography Group meet on the Third Friday of each month 10-12 am at Thame Guide Hut, Southern Road, Thame, Oxfordshire, OX9 2EE.

The aims of the Haddenham group are:

  1. To enable group members to compose, take and process photographs to meet their individual goals and to have the knowledge of their own equipment and software such that they can continue to develop their skills.
  2. To improve confidence and engender a sense of fun in photography
  3. To meet the needs of compact and DSL camera users"



There is a nominal attendance charge to cover room hire and refreshments.

animals in some of the most challenging of environments. These include penguins in the Falkland Islands, polar bears in Churchill and the Northern Lights, high above the
Arctic Circle.

Message from Bernard Warner

All members of Haddenham U3A can attend meetings of the Greater Thame U3A Photography Group. I have attended these meetings in the past and can say that you would all fit in to the group regardless of your own experience of photography. Existing members  use all types of the cameras not just SLRs. Within the group are also some very patient individuals who have been willing to share their knowledge with me and others.

I can fully recommend these sessions to you all.

The dates and subjects for the group are shown above. If you would like to attend these meetings let me know and I can give you further details.
