The Durham PS Annual Exhibition in the North Aisle of Durham Cathedral is proving very popular with visitors and it’s good if there are DPS members on site to chat
To be a Steward, it’s simple – just turn up for a couple of hours. There’s an ID badge on site and of course other members may also be there which is especially good at busy times
If you’ve not experienced it before, it’s simply a matter of being friendly and getting into conversation. Just saying hello is good. Asking them what they think of the exhibition, what kind of photography they like doing, where do they come from are just some of the approaches that people seem to like.
Feel free to mention our website which has a lot of good stuff whether or not they are thinking of joining us
Be very quiet when there are services on and remember no photography is allowed inside the Cathedral without permission. Those not going to the Summer School portrait night tonight may like to know there is a Photography Evening at the Cathedral (see Hot Dates for the link). Most other nights in August the Cathedral is open to all until 8.00 pm
