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

Ten Days in the Masai Mara

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

This week it was back to Africa – this time in the company of visiting presenter Derek Trendall – as you might expect – lots of things wot eat you if you’re not quick enough with the shutter! Derek survived this though to create this presentation entitled “Ten Days in the Masai Mara”

Great images – not just of the animals but of their environment – it gave us a real feeling of how they live. Dinner was high on the agenda – including a great sequence of shots of a cheetah stalking and running down her prey! Superb back stories too so we knew what was behind each image. We were treated to some wonderful shots of the ‘great migration’ with thousands of wildebeest together with zebra  crossing croc-infested rivers – and sometimes doing a quick return trip if the grass looked greener where they’d just come from!

Derek is a bird photographer and we saw great images of the feathered life of Africa – each one labelled. But not only birds – we were introduced to the big cats of the area – lions, leopards and cheetahs (the last keeping our Nigel happy!) together with elephants, giraffes, zebras and the odd snake!

A superb evening – thank you for sharing your images and stories with us Derek – and we look forward to your next visit in the not-to-distant future!
