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.

Photographers And Their Images

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

There we are! Having had one meeting where the little grey cells were exercised – we then had another!

On this particular evening it was Rod Bird - who’s made the trek over from the wilds of Maidenhead a number of times (and still comes back!). This time he took us through the history of photography from the first image by Joseph Niépce in the 1820s to the present day. In the course of the evening, the work of a number of eminent photographers was looked at and discussed. Often these are iconic images which have told important stories and frequently shaped future photography. Strange isn’t it how if they were put into a club competition now the judge would probably heavily criticise them!

Great to look once again at some really wonderful images and consider their influence on our photography.

Thank you Rod for a superb evening – look forward to seeing you at WHCC again in the not too distant future!
