With the opportunities to get involved with HIP Fest (5 – 28 October), another Graffiti Hunt (photo walk and drive), and the York Balloon Fiesta – it makes for interesting times.

And remember we always aim to make our events open to all and are mindful that photography can be an expensive hobby, so we make efforts to provide things free or at cost.

The free, fun and friendly photography club. Open to all regardless of kit or ability. Attendance not restricted in any way. You don’t have to be a ‘member’ to enjoy photography.

Graffiti Hunt – Hull Urban Street Art Photowalk – Sat 15 Sept 2018

We are meeting on Humber Dock Marina at Humber Street at 11.00am and we’ll be taking part in a walk that takes us across Hull’s Old Town and eventually leading up to Bankside/Wincolmlee. And aim to end the walk with refreshments at the Whalebone pub.

WHETHER you call it street art, urban art, guerrilla art or graffiti art, there is no denying that such art forms have become acceptable with permission being granted in some places in Hull to create it. On Saturday 15 September 2018 Hedon Viewfinders is going to go on a Graffiti Hunt to see what all the fuss is about!

With the ever-changing nature of this art form we can almost guarantee that there will be something different to see this week than last week.

ALL WELCOME – you don’t have to be a ‘member’. It’s a free, fun and friendly walk with enthusiastic photographers.

We’ll aim to go ahead in all but the worst weather.

Photo Walk around ancient Hedon – Sun 27 May 2018

Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club is hosting a Photowalk around the ancient town on Sunday, May 27 2018 meeting outside the Haven Arms on Havenside at 1pm.

North Cave WetlandsPeople with an interest in photography from across Hull and Holderness are invited and the Viewfinders will show some of the best spots in the town to take photos that represent both the historical and rural aspects of the place.

Easy going stroll across both trails and pavements (but take heed of the weather and wear appropriate footwear in case trails are muddy). The circular route will finish at the Haven Arms about 3pm’ish.

Members of the club attended a photowalk around Hull City Centre arranged by the Hull Creative Photography group, and the Hedon walk is a reciprocal visit.

Hedon Viewfinders is the town’s free, fun and friendly photography club that is open to all (no membership required). All welcome!

We hope you’ll join us for refreshments and a social chat afterwards.

Please do let us know if you intend to come.

Announcement: Some of you may have heard by now of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming into effect May 25, 2018 – basically, in order to continue to receive updates from the Viewfinders website, subscribers have to give their permission again. In my case this coincides with me ceasing to use my current web host and using a free service instead. This means the current website at http://www.viewfinders-ttl.online will change, to be replaced by a much simpler version (this one!). With the launch of the new website, I will email out to our 100 or so subscribers and ask them to renew their interest once again. Hope to get all this in place by Fri 25th. Sorry for any inconvenience. – Ray Duffill.
