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.

The Maasai Mara

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Now didn’t we just enjoy our visit to the Maasai Mara along with our intrepid guide Nigel Glover-Wright! Of course there are few better qualified to take us on a virtual safari ‘cos he makes frequent visits there and comes back with literally thousands of stunning images! (just think of all that raw conversion!!)

We know Nigel’s wildlife images well – and we weren’t in the least disappointed with this selection – great photographs of animal and bird life all in their natural habitat. There were the usual suspects – birds like the rollers with their fantastically coloured plumage – the somewhat less attractive marabou storks (only their mothers could love them!).

Then of course there were the big cats – and we all know that cheetahs are Nigel’s favourite animal don’t we!

And who can forget the images of the Great Migration – puts you in mind of the M25 on a bank holiday (except for cars substitute wildebeest} oh – and on the M25 we don’t have to contend with hungry crocodiles!

A superb evening Nigel – we look forward to your next presentation!!

THE CHAIRMAN’S CHALLENGE - PROJECT 100

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.
