A Few Words From Our Chairman

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. We will be learning about the development of mirrorless cameras, the copyright laws affecting photographers, the creation of abstract art images, creative photography and architectural image making to name just a few. In addition, we will be transported to many exotic locations as the season progresses and we will be viewing some of the finest Natural History photography currently available.

Many of our own Club members will also feature throughout the season with a wonderful varied selection of presentations and we also offer help and guidance for all photographers at our Practical Photography Group meetings.

It all looks very exciting and is set to further enhance our reputation as one of the leading Camera Clubs in the area. I hope you will enjoy all there is on offer during 2019-20.

This, That and Street Photography

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

And another great evening! This was the visit by guest speaker Peter Crane ARPS who we already knew as an expert in street photography.

Well – this was something more as the title suggests – and we experienced a wide range of Peter’s superb image making! We were taken on a tour of places and sights which included amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and of course towns and cities.

Peter’s wildlife shots captured near to his home and further away – in Scotland for example – show the birds and animals in their habitats – doing what they do naturally! We saw beautiful foxes, stoats, red squirrels, kingfishers and owls to name but a few - oh yes - even intertwined adders!!

Then there were plants and trees – at different times of the year - such as autumn at Glen Affric and also the winter illuminated trees at Westonbirt Arboretum.

Of course his street photography is superb – catching moments of life, especially the unusual or just eye-catching. People figure heavily (so to speak!) some knowing they are being photographed (some posing!) and some totally unaware. Peter tells some great stories of his urban expeditions – including some of the difficulties met!

Peter’s images show his flair for composition and for creativity – minute details in the street or in nature which include abstract photography. So an evening both to enjoy and inspire. We clearly enjoyed it – and hope to see more of Peter’s work in the not too distant future!
