Welcome to Bishopthorpe Camera Club

 

There has never been a more exciting time to take photographs. In the digital era more people than ever enjoy taking and sharing their pictures.

Whether you use a mobile phone, digital or film camera for your photography, we provide a friendly, supportive environment where you will find inspiration as well as good company. We welcome photographers of all ages and experience, from beginners to experienced amateurs and even a few professionals. Visitors and potential new members may attend any of our Activities and can be sure of a warm reception.

PLEASE NOTE:  In view of the current situation, we are holding virtual meetings on Zoom and running Challenges and other activities to keep us in touch and enjoying our photography together. Check out individual events and details of all our activities under What’s On. If you are new to Zoom, you may find this helpsheet useful.

*** LOOKING FORWARD***

Thanks to everyone for supporting our Autumn and Spring programmes, which despite all the odds have turned out to be very successful and hugely enjoyable. We have been delighted to receive such positive feedback. Zoom has allowed us to turn what could have been a difficult period for the Club into a great opportunity to invite talented and prestigious photographers from all over the world to speak about their work. We have managed to avoid too many technical hitches and have been treated to some truly memorable evenings!

Please see below and also our What’s On page to take a look at what’s still to come. Visitors are very welcome to join us for the talks, and anyone interested should contact Julia at secretary@bishopthorpecc.co.uk for more information or to book a place. We’ll look forward to welcoming you!

Tuesday 27 April 2021  Scott Keys: Three Keys to Wildlife Photogrpahy

Scott Keys is wildlife photographer residing in Pennsylvania, USA. He specialises in photographing birds in their natural environment, creating intimate portraits often at low level with eye contact. According to Scott, “A great picture shows the beauty of its subject and environment. It also provokes a thought emotion or connection”, His images certainly achieve this.

In his talk, Three Keys to Wildlife Photography, Scott will explain the three important principles that he applies to all his avian photography: light, perspective and environment. Be prepared to be inspired!

Visitors and members of other clubs are welcome to attend (£5). If you are interested or wish to know more, please contact secretary@bishopthorpecc.co.uk.
