A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanThe major event this season must be the re-opening of Whitchurch Bridge.  The closure affected us very badly last year but I hope that, now we are again accessible to members south of the Thames, we shall see membership numbers increasing back to the dizzy heights we reached a couple of years ago.

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 and we will also enjoy presentations from a number of our own members covering many aspects of modern photography.

I am pleased to confirm that the monthly Practical Photography Group meetings are back again.  The dates are shown in the Programme and the subjects covered will be notified to members a week or two prior to the meeting.

Click on this map to view a fully-interactive Google map of our locationHave a look at the Programme on the website.  Here you will find links to the websites of our visiting speakers which will enable you to have a preview of their work and find out a little background detail before their presentation.

You don’t have to be an expert to join our club. Just look through the Programme and come along and meet us at our next meeting – I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Alan Copeland, Chairman

PRACTICAL PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP MEETING

WALKING ACROSS ENGLAND

Graham Horn, a Blue Badge guide, recalls the spring of 2007 when he set out on a journey to walk the Macmillan Way from Lincolnshire to Dorset, 300 miles in 18 days. This is a narrative combined with lots of pictures showing some of England's most attractive villages, hidden and historic gems, and the pleasure of strolling through the pretty countryside.

Opening Night

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

This was it then...wot we'd been waiting for...the first meeting of the new season! Hurrah! The other thing wot we've been waiting for hasn't quite happened yet...ie the reappearance of the bridge...but fear not gentle members...it's imminent!

There he was - conducting proceedings as ever - yes - our esteemed Chairman...Mr Alan Copeland! What was on offer tonight? Well, firstly a look at images taken during the summer evening outdoor meetings. Lovely to look back at the places we'd been to - interesting how we all go to the same place at the same time and come out with something completely different! Great isn't it!

In the second half (after someone who shall remain nameless but who is typing at this very moment) drove all the way home to pick up a memory stick he'd forgotten to bring - we looked at a variety of members' images and the aforementioned Chairman (who is a judge) gave his comments on each. The difference this time was that this time we could reply! Ha! And we did!

A good start to the season - and lovely to see y'all again - and a special welcome to new members - you'll love it here!

Lastly - a word about the camera club's exhibition being held at Pangbourne Library from 12th - 20th September - we look forward to seeing everybody there!
