Cliq Member News No. 2 - March 2024

Welcome to your latest email update for members of Cliq Photiq! A special welcome to our newest member, Katie from Vermont USA.

With spring finally upon us in the northern hemisphere, we are re-discovering endless outdoor subjects to photograph. And we hope that–wherever you are–you are feeling motivated and inspired to get out with your camera.

Speaking of inspiration, the member article for this issue looks at the subject and provides a few tips on loosening creative blocks.

We're also planning the next members' Zoom meeting in April. Read on for all the details.

With all our best,
Nat and Ruth Coalson

Member Article: On Inspiration

In our next members-only article, we investigate the concept of 'inspiration'. At times we all feel the ebb and flow of inspiration in our photography. Read the article for Nat's thoughts on the process, with some exercises to keep your inspiration flowing.

Your input needed

We are very keen to have ongoing communication and involvement with and between our members. Currently, there are a few topics which would be of great help to us to hear your thoughts, ideas and suggestions:

Meetings in person—would you like to join us for a coffee meetup in or around Leamington Spa? We understand many of our members do not live local to the gallery, so our member meetings will mostly be online. Even so, meeting in person would be great, so let us know what you think.

Scheduling for Zoom meetings—we'd like to vary the times for these, so that everyone has a chance to join. What are the best days of the week and times for you?

Featured Member

Tell a friend

If you know other photographers who you think might benefit from membership in Cliq Photiq, please refer them! You can direct them to the main Membership page on our website. Again, membership is open to photographers living anywhere in the world.

As always, if there are any questions or concerns we are more than happy to address them personally, so please also feel free to share our group email as well as our gallery phone number 01926 833212.

Until next time… thanks and happy Cliquing !
