APG Studio Open Night for Club members
First Monday of each month -
7.00pm to 9.00pm.
The studio is open for MCC members to use. The studio provides good facilities for portrait, tabletop and experimental photography as well as computer facilities with Photoshop, Lightroom and other photographic software. A big Canon 24inch wide printer allows big format printing at reasonable prices.
How to find the APG Studio? The studio is in the annex of Square Edge. You will need to take the little alleyway to the left of the Gull petrol station at the top of Fitzherbert Ave. Walk right to the end. You see the courtyard of Square Edge behind a big iron gate. Walk in, an APG sign is in a window. During the day you may walk right through Square Edge.
Our buddy system
If you find it difficult to get going in the Club ask for a buddy. A buddy is a senior club member and will give you an introduction into the club activities and hopefully makes you as a new member feel welcome, included and quickly familiar with the events provided by the club. This should help to make your photographic experience richer and more rewarding.
