A new photography group set up to help enthusiasts get more from their cameras is being officially launched next week.

Founder Tracey Robinson found her life was transformed when her husband Eric bought her a camera on a holiday six years ago.

As the bug caught hold, it helped her overcome depression and a debilitating illness and she now works as a photographer.

Last year Mrs Robinson, 46, from Gaywood, started a Facebook group where people could upload and comment on each other's pictures.

It soon had 100 members. When she held a couple of trial meetings last month, more than 40 turned up for them.

Now the King's Lynn Photography Group is set to be officially launched by Gary Sandell, West Norfolk's deputy mayor, next Tuesday night.

'People want to get more from their cameras,' said Mrs Robinson. 'People have all got digital cameras but when they use them they just stick them on auto and take a few quick pictures.

'If they're paying £150-500 for it, they don't just want it to sit in a box just for family get-togethers.'

As well as tutorials and photo assignments, Mrs Robinson hopes to arrange trips for members when the warmer weather comes.

The launch night will be at the Gaywood Church Rooms, on Gayton Road, from 7.30pm on Tuesday, January 15.
