A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanThank 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 monthly 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 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.

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

A return visit from Stan McCartin LRPS CPAGB APAGB should ensure an excellent evening's entertainment. The very best work from the four rounds of this season's ladder competitions (excluding the Natural History competition) is brought together to find the best shot this year.

Wednesday 13th May 2015


Linda Sharp believes that there are landscapes all around us from the very recognizable vistas structured around land, sea, sky and fabulous light to the intimate landscapes in the details around us which are often missed or ignored.

An Evening With Nigel Glover-Wright

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

An evening of spots, stripes, fangs and trunks – yes – it was Africa – this time in the company of our very own intrepid explorer Nigel Glover Wright – well worth braving the bushlands and savannahs of West Berkshire to come and see!

We know that Nigel has a self-confessed weakness for cheetahs and we weren’t disappointed ‘cos there were lots of them – especially great sequences of family groups featuring cute cubs! But they had severe competition tonight with the appearance of tree-climbing leopards (always fascinating to see how dangling one’s legs from a branch can apparently be comfortable – looks highly painful to me!). And how on earth did Mum Leopard get that dead wildebeest up a tree for the kids’ dinner? (answer: with extreme difficulty!). Competition also from that perennial favourite  - elephants – especially when there’s an ultra-cute tiny learning to be elephant-like! And mustn’t forget the birds – a really good variety of colourful feathers – and of course there was Nigel’s favourite – the aptly named superb starling!  Some great landscapes too – giving a real sense of the African countryside – the habitat of these wonderful animals.

A superb evening Nigel – we all thoroughly enjoyed it and are now waiting for the results of your latest foray into Africa (must have done the raw conversions by now!!!).
