Once on flickr you can mark other members as contact and we can create a Group where members will be able to show their photos and get feedback and comments from everyone who partisipates. The more members who partisipate the better this will be, like with everything in the club the more people put in the more everyone gets out of it. It is also a way for members to communicate with each other in their own time.
Flickr is great place to see photo's and get inspiration on photo opportunites in the local area or even the world. A link to members already on Flickr are down the RHS of the page, and I hope in time this will become considerably longer, (have a look at some of the photos members have up). If you have any questions email me.
So please come and join in and lets make the club better for everone.
