Wigan 10 Foto Club


Wigan 10 Foto Club is an amateur photographic club, federated to the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union.  In comparison to most UK photographic clubs, Wigan 10 has a small membership, due to historically meeting in a home environment, as we don’t have a clubroom.   However, Wigan 10 has held a legacy of success at regional, national and international level as a club and also as individuals.  Our aim?  To enjoy and promote photography as a hobby across all genres.

Welcome to Wigan 10’s Amateur Photography Club

Plas Teg

On Saturday a group of us attended a photo shoot at Plas Teg Pontblyddyn Clwyd.PlasTeg is a recently restored Jacobean mansion of unique architectural significance,described by the Times newspaper as”A fascinating experience ” and it certainly was!. Inside was packed with a treasure of important antique furniture and textiles, whilst the exterior provided the perfect backdrop for photography. Thanks to all the models who attended and particularly Mandy for organising. We made an interesting discovery too…Robert is a black belt photobomber !
