Photography Based Weekends

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 joined the club back in 2012 following early retirement. I bought a Panasonic Lumix G3 and attended a short photography course in Sawbridgeworth.

I had always loved taking photos and thanks to meeting Bob Miller on the course, I was invited to join the BSCC Summer Programme. The rest is history!

Photowalks throughout the summer

Once lockdown finally comes to an end and it’s safe to do so we will be resuming our Summer Photowalks program. 

Open to all, our popular Tuesday evening walks are a great way to meet existing members and improve your photography in a social setting.

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.
