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 Coronavirus situation, and in the light of the Government advice, it is with regret that all future Club meetings are cancelled until further notice. Please visit our website regularly for updates, where we will also be posting on-line opportunities for activities that might help to keep us in touch and enjoying our photography together.
MEETINGS UPDATE: We are delighted that Astrid McGechan has agreed to give our first Zoom lecture on Tuesday 2 June, 7.30pm. Astrid is a freelance photographer based in Surrey and her images have been widely exhibited in the UK and Europe. Her talk, ‘Feel the Land – Photography and Emotion’, will relate how her photography aims to reflect her emotions at the time of taking the picture and will include images ranging from landscapes and street life to abstracts and architecture. We expect that Astrid’s talk will attract many of our members, and non-members are also welcome to attend (£3, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org). Anyone who wishes to join the Club and attend our regular lockdown Zoom meetings should please contact email@example.com.
New! 22 May 2020 CHALLENGE #5: Light-hearted lockdown competition
Owing to the current coronavirus situation, we have not been able to hold our normal end of season annual competitions or our exhibition. Instead, we are proposing to hold an informal on-line digital image competition to showcase some of the photographs we have taken during lockdown. We encourage all members to get involved. Instead of an external judge everyone will have a chance to choose their favourites in a ‘popular vote’.
Please submit three images no later than midnight on Tuesday 2 June to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will subsequently be displayed in a Gallery on this website for you to choose your favourite three images. For more information about this competition, please see Challenge #5 on the website. Our Zoom meeting on Tuesday 16 June will include an audio-visual presentation of all of the submitted images followed by a slideshow of the most liked images.
The competition is open only to members of the Club. If you wish to join the Club in order to enter the competition and attend our regular lockdown Zoom meetings please contact email@example.com.
