First Meeting of the New Season

It’s that time of year again, the new season of Camera Club begins!  We have had a great summer and thanks to everyone that came along on the Tuesday and Saturday events.

This season the sub’s are staying the same at £41 for the year.  You can pay by cash, cheque or bank transfer.  At less than £1 a week, that is great value for what we have planned.

We have worked hard to build a great programme for the year; Gary Nicholls, Gavin Hoey, Barry Kaufman Wright, Colin Westgate, Glyn Dewis and many more excellent speakers are visiting us, covering a variety of subjects, from lighting set up and Photoshop, to macro and landscape photography, so lots to look forward to.

We would really like to maximise our  membership numbers this year and we have invested in providing a comprehensive programme for all, so if you have been thinking of joining or know someone who would like to, then please come along and try us out!  Make sure you take a look at the new 2016/17 programme.

I look forward to seeing you all again this Tuesday. If you’d like to, please bring along a USB stick to share your recent photos with the group.


Gilbert Cox

We are sorry to report that Gilbert Cox, one time President of the Club, died recently. His funeral will take place on Wednesday 7th September at Fawley Church.

London Photowalk 17th September

The Highgate Cemetery and Hampstead Heath photowalk takes place on 17th September. I currently have Karen Rainbird, Matthew Bickham, Linda Lanb, Cliff Hoy and Stephen Bishop attending. If you would like to come along could you let Mark Seton know. We will be meeting at either Epping Station at 11.00 or Highgate Cemetery at 12.45. Sunset is at 19:08 that day – we will decide on the day where we will photograph the sunset.

“Me and my Eye” and “Rewiring the Photographer’s Brain”

The RPS Digital Imaging Group presents Andy Beel FRPS and Prof Bob Ryan ARPS FRSA – “Me and my Eye” and “Rewiring the Photographer’s Brain” on Sunday 18 September 2016.


The morning sessions will be led by Andy Beel FRPS with his presentation called “Me and my Eye”.

The talk will be a farrago of locations, styles and tall tales, most of them completely true. Consisting of A2 size mono prints plus digital projects from his travels in the last few years.


The afternoon session will be led by Prof Bob Ryan ARPS FRSA with Andy Beel FRPS. The subject of the presentation will be how to become a great photographer.

“Rewiring the Photographer’s Brain” – Andy Beel and Bob Ryan

Bob and Andy’s double act brings together a specialist in the development of expert skill and a professional photographer, to talk about the steps to follow if you want to make the jump from good to great.  It isn’t as easy as some would claim, as there isn’t a wonderful thing called a photographer’s eye that you can acquire for the price of a book.  Forty years of research has given them a powerful strategy for tapping into the power of the human brain and using it to their best photographic advantage.

Held at Woosehill Community Hall, Wokingham, Berkshire RG41 3DA
