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.

Opening Night

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Ah! The start of a brand new season!

Last Wednesday Whitchurch on Thames was once again invaded by the marauding hordes of the Camera Club! Hurrah!

Lovely to see familiar faces again – and some new ones too – that is if they hadn’t been meeting for the Wednesday evening photoshoots throughout the summer. Oh – and talking of those – we had a showing of all the lovely images taken by members during the summer break. And of course there was the compact camera challenge – this year in Wallingford. Amazing how the set subjects were creatively interpreted –  really superb images – well done to all!

A really super evening to get us all going for the next year!

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.
