Ockbrook and Borrowash Image Club

How it all began!

Valerie Dalling has lived in Derbyshire with her family for over 30 years. After studying fine art photography at the University of Derby from 2003-2006, she has continued to practice as an artist, while at the same time providing opportunities for others to share in her passion.

In 2008 she founded The Image Club, and launched her first monthly photography forum.

From beginners to those with photographic experience, Valerie encourages discussions on image making, through the sharing of ideas and knowledge, in relaxed and informal environments, as well as providing more specific educational learning through workshops, talks and walks with the camera.


Ockbrook and Borrowash Image Club is a non-competitive group which meets on the first Monday of each month at 7pm in the Village Hall, Church Street, Ockbrook.
