Shoot With Me – Autumn 2015 Groups

Sep 23, 2015 | Shoot With Me

We have renamed ‘Walk With Me’ to ‘Shoot With Me’ as we believe it better describes what this activity is about.

The purpose of the Shoot With Me (SWM) is to bring old and new members together, to share learning and to get members out shooting. The idea is that some of the members (between 12 and 16) volunteer to lead a small group of fellow photographers in a project of the leaders choice.

Choose your 1st, 2nd and 3rd project choices and return to me at this address (swm@offshoot.ie) along with your name – as soon as you can please. Do not contact the leaders directly.
