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 2020 and Spring 2021 programmes, which despite all the odds 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!

2021/22 season

Our 2021-2022 programme of talks is taking shape with lots of exciting speakers in the pipeline, please see ‘What’s On‘ for information about our programme and other activities. Please contact Julia at secretary@bishopthorpecc.co.uk for more information. We’ll look forward to welcoming you!

Tuesday 16 November, 7.30 – 9.30 pm  Club Exchange: York Photographic Society

We are delighted to welcome York Photographic Society (YPS) to join us for a Club exchange evening. Fellow photographers from YPS will be giving presentations on a variety of subjects including Saltwick Bay, Memories, Teeside and Life after Retirement.

Challenge #14: Shapes, Shadows and Surfaces 

The Gallery of members’ images for this challenge, inspired by Serge Najjar’s recent talk, is now published on the website.

Cuppa and Capture: We’re back for a ‘Cuppa’ at York Theatre Royal, 12 noon, Monday 25 October

Please come and join other members for a brew and a natter at 12.00 noon on Monday 25 October before heading off to take photographs on the theme of Autumn.  Returning to the Theatre Royal and meeting up with some fellow ‘capturers’ is a very positive step forward in getting back to some element of normality. Some of you may still not be ready to take this step, which is perfectly understandable, and you are of course more than welcome to capture images wherever you are during the week and submit them to the Gallery as usual. For those don’t want to meet inside there is some outside seating available too.

For those of you who feel comfortable meeting up, we would encourage you to do so. Not only would this support the Theatre Royal, who are generously providing us with a large, dedicated area for us to meet safely, but it would also greatly enhance the social aspect of the Club, allowing interactions that are so important to our photography. There is plenty of space so social distancing will not be an issue. There is a lift as well as the stairs, and you can ignore the ‘no entry’ sign if you are with our group. Any food will be brought upstairs if you let them know when you place your order (and please let them know you are with our group also if you are sitting outside).

Please see the Cuppa & Capture and What’s On pages for more details
