1st New Members Group – Welcome
Thu 19th September @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm
This evening is for people who have recently joined the Camera Club. We will introduce you to what we do in the New Members Group of the Camera Club and give you a chance to meet other new members. We will also help you begin to share some of your images. To do this, we work in small groups, with existing members of the Club acting as facilitators. You are encouraged to share your thoughts, experiences and hopes about photography and discuss what you want to get out the Camera Club. You are also encouraged to bring some of your own work and talk about it to others in your small group.
Steve Boyle brings the evening together by selecting a range of your images to talk about. He picks out images which represent topics, themes, techniques and approaches and talks us through them. He highlights different aspects of photography and gives you the chance to think about how you might apply some of this to your own work.
For the evening to work effectively we need you to bring a selection – maximum 8 – of your favourite images to share. They need to be PRINTS, because we lay them out on tables and move them around. The prints don’t need to be large – 4×6 is good enough – but bring bigger prints if you want to. Tesco, Boots, Asda are all good places to get prints done quickly and cheaply. There’s also Colourstream in St James’s St and Colourfast in Cheltenham Place.
We are fortunate as a club to be able to attract high profile photographers and speakers to the club to give us presentations. These presenters may come at a higher cost. Where this cost is higher, it cannot be covered by your membership fee alone, so we charge a small additional entry fee to cover costs.
This additional fee is payable by all types of members (including trial members) when you arrive for the event, so please pay at registration.
Note that attendance is optional.
Sometimes, due to unforeseen circumstances, an event has to be cancelled at short notice. Unfortunately, BHCC cannot be held responsible for any last minute cancellations but will make every effort to arrange an alternative similar event (if possible) or, if necessary, change the event type and advise all members of any change as soon as is practicable.
