Following the fantastic exhibition at the Laverton Hall in Westbury, the Team Spirit community photography project officially ended today, with a final meet up of the photographers, each receiving a copy of the commemorative book printed to celebrate the project.
The photography project was led by Jackie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography and was funded by V. The books were designed by Jackie and feature a personal profile of each project participant, together with their 3 best photos - and the soft back cover features the 'TEAM' and 'SPIRIT' group shots of all participants.
Thank you to all the participants, everyone who has helped us make this project happen, let us photograph their team or organisation, and those who came along to our exhibition.
We are currently putting together plans for a new photography project, that will be free to participate and inspire you to use your camera every day... so keep checking back!

Jackie McDine not only takes beautiful wedding photos, but also shoots landscapes, portraits and photos of animals. Her photo 'Mini Tiger' which features the Lacock resident with the famous "I Bite" tag has just won a photography competition to be selected for a charity calendar. The calendar will support animal charities and was organised by the Beeches Vet Centre in Melksham. We wish them lots of success and hope they sell plenty of calendars.

Back in August Jackie McDine launched the project "Team Spirit: A Community Photography Project" in Westbury, Wiltshire.
Three months later, and the project has enabled us to make new friends, share skills and techniques and shoot some really interesting photos. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all participants and we're really excited that you will have the opportunity to see our work next week!
Photos by all 13 project participants will be exhibited at the Laverton Hall in Westbury and we would be delighted if you could join us to enjoy the work and have a cup of tea and cake - and yes everything is free! It would be great if you could also forward this information on to friends and colleagues, and even add it to your facebook status.
The exhibition opens on Friday 12th November from 6-9pm and will run again on Saturday 13th November from 12-5pm. Come along to enjoy the photographs - you will have a chance to meet the photographers and discuss their work, as well as enjoying a free cup of tea and piece of cake. The project has been funded by v - inspiring young volunteers across the UK, and has been kindly supported by Matravers School.
All of the work is based upon the theme of 'Team Spirit' and 13 participants of all ages and abilities took part in the project, led by Jackie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography.
We hope to see you on Friday 12th or Saturday 13th at the exhibition.
