    Hi Chiara – yes, you’d be very welcome, just get in contact with Terence on 07530 157132 or by email: photos@rowntreepark.org.uk. There are some spaces available for the activity.

  3. What’s the difference between Amateur and Enthusiast / Professional? Is it skill level or equipment used?

    1. cathmortimer says:

      Graham says: The answer depends entirely on how you see your level of ability. It does not depend on the equipment used. A good photographer can take a much better picture on a £100 camera than someone who’s not sure what they are doing with a £1000 camera. We trust that all professionals, semi-professionals, camera club enthusiasts and similar people will own up to their level of skill.

      1. Very true and thanks for the answer looking forward to entering.

      Very kind of you! We’re hoping to see lots of people out with their cameras, when the weather starts being nicer!
