A Letter from the Chair

Thank you for visiting our website. Here you will find full details of our Programme, a large selection of images from our members as well as a weekly blog report of our meetings. We meet at Whitchurch-on-Thames Village Hall every Wednesday evening at 8.00 pm from September to June and additional Practical Group Meetings take place on Thursday evenings.

This season’s Programme includes our usual regular competitions for colour prints, monochrome prints and digital projected images and we also take part in a number of competitions against other Camera Clubs in the Chilterns Association.

In addition to this, I have booked some top level speakers who are experts in their field of photography - names like Andy Sands, Matt Emmett, Eddy and Pam Lane and Chris Hutchinson.

Many of our own Club members will also feature in the second half of the Programme when we will see the results of my Chairman’s Challenge which involved capturing two images every week throughout 2017.

Ivor's Winter Mixture

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So it was the middle of February (exactly so being the 14th) and we all flocked to the village hall for a presentation appropriately called ‘Ivor’s Winter Mixture’ – courtesy of Ivor Porter from the Oxford Photographic Society. And no - it wasn’t a dose to be taken three times daily – far better than that – it was a visual tonic to combat winter blues!

He’s stunned us on previous occasions with his superb wildlife images – and this evening was no exception. Ivor began with images of birds (mostly) taken in his garden – where he has positioned various perches and a reflection pool – overlooked by a hide. This time we saw amongst other things a series of beautiful images of starlings – showing their iridescent plumage to perfection!

Then Ivor took us around the world treating us to the many stunning images he’s captured of wildlife on his travels from Europe to the Americas and Asia to Africa.

An absolutely superb and inspirational evening – thank you for sharing your images with us Ivor.

By popular demand, we are repeating the project which we embarked on five years ago in 2012.

My challenge is for you to take two photographs every week throughout 2017 with the exception of two free weeks to give you a rest (you decide which weeks you want to miss).

This will result in you having taken a total of 100 images which you will share with your fellow Club members during the first few months of 2018.

The challenge, of course, is motivating yourself to use the camera when, like me, you would not normally consider taking images. It will also stretch your creative abilities in finding an image, perhaps in the middle of winter, and producing a photograph to show at the club.

When we ran this project throughout 2012, we had 16 keen photographers who accepted the challenge and went on to show some fantastic images to the club.

Will we do as well second time around?

Full details will be announced before the end of this calendar year and I will be collecting names of those members who want to accept the Chairman’s Challenge.
