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 8.00pm 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 Neil Cave who runs Timeline Events, a very successful business staging classic period scenes re-creating some of the iconic images of times gone by. We also have Peter Crane who is an expert on Street Photography and Eddy and Pam Lane who take us to Antarctica in the footsteps of Shackleton.
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 2018-19.

50 Years Of Printing From Wet To Dry
posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings
April started with a superb evening - a presentation by someone who’s visited us a lot over the past years as a presenter and (dare I say) a judge – Gordon Roberts. Such a shame that this was his final visit as he’s decided enough is enough!! (reckon we can all relate to that!)
So this evening was called ‘Fifty Years of Printing From Wet To Dry’ – and it did just what it said on the tin – with some extras!!
The first half of the evening was dedicated to his prints – starting with his earliest from the depths of the darkroom and progressing through to his later computer-printed ones. Some great work here – and so good to hear the backstories and learn of Gordon’s history as a photographer. We learnt of his progression in hardware too from his first camera – which he brought along! Reminded me of the equipment I started out with back in the ‘60s!!
In the second half Gordon shared his projected images with us – especially those taken in Switzerland where he spends a fair amount of time! Here we delighted in beautiful pictures of mountains and lakes – and learnt something of his life trekking and skiing through this wonderful scenery. Not only Switzerland though as Gordon is well travelled and so we were treated to great images of scenes and places both in the UK and overseas!
This was an evening thoroughly enjoyed by all. We wish you all the best Gordon and we’re all sorry that this was your last guest appearance here!
