A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanOnce again, I am pleased to bid you Welcome to our Camera Club, one of the brightest and friendliest Camera Clubs in the South of England.  No matter what your interest or experience I guarantee that your photographic skills will improve after just a few meetings at our club.

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 Clive Minnitt, Mike Lane, Tony Worobiec and Mike Wilkes are all making return visits sharing their experiences with new selections of striking images.

Click on this map to view a fully-interactive Google map of our locationOur own Club members will also feature throughout the Programme and we will see images presented by Mike Alexander, Brian Sargent, Neil Stewart, Bill Scott, David Smith, Rachel Paton and myself.

Have a look at the Programme. 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

Burma

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

A bit of travelling to far-off places this evening!  Burma in fact – courtesy of our very own Rachel Paton who went there last November (apparently that’s a good time to go there ‘cos it’s not chucking it down with rain then – unlike here last winter!).

We had a very useful bit of background information first – especially regarding the recent history of the country.  Rachel reminded us that like a lot of countries it changed its name fairly recently and is now Myanmar (apparently pronounced meow-anmar – just remember Burmese cats – sorry Mr Nash!).

Rachel then took us on a tour of the country by means of some beautiful images. There were some great portraits of the local inhabitants too – most of whom seemed to love being photographed. Several of Rachel’s images featured the ubiquitous Buddhist monks – many of whom were young boys – some very young indeed – dressed in their orange robes. Then there were the fishermen balancing on the stern of their boats with one foot wrapped round the oar to leave both hands free for handling the nets! Try that Oxford and Cambridge!

A really fascinating and informative evening – thank you for sharing your images and knowledge with us Rachel!
