Annual Weekend Away

Each year the club runs a long weekend away at (usually) a Warner Hotel in an interesting part of the country for fum, games and photography. 

This is a great social weekend for members and their partners and friends to get together around photography and see and photograph an area we wouldn’t normally visit.

I have been an active member of the camera club for many years and enjoy so many aspects of the club including the friendship, the talks, competitions and also the ability to help others with their photography. I have been the publicity secretary since 2019 and am delighted to be the chair in 2022.

Photowalks throughout the summer

I never knew I wanted to be a photographer until my wife bought me a  camera for my 40th birthday. I joined BSCC shortly thereafter and have, with the help and encouragement of the club, earned my LRPS and CPAGB photography distinctions

I’ve always had a camera to take family photos but when my children became teenagers they “asked” me to stop taking their photo. I had to find something else to photograph. I was keen to take flower and macro photos but didn’t know how to. I joined the camera club to learn how to use my camera properly and to get off the auto mode. It’s also been great to meet other photographers.
