Funding Grants

As a community camera club, we are fortunate to get some financial support via a West Lothian Council Community Arts Grant to help in the running of the club.

 

Club Projects

New members, especially those who are just starting out on the road to more serious photography, may be interested to learn about the club's monthly photography project which takes place on the club's website. This is strictly a members' only project, members of the public will not be able to view any images submitted to a project. It's also a "fun" project; it's not a competition and there are no prizes. Its purpose is to encourage members, especially Beginners, to submit images based on a theme which will change from month to month. And it's also meant to be a challenge for more advanced members to come up with something different. It doesn't matter about the quality of the image - although we hope over time that these will improve with experience. It's more about scanning your catalogue of images for something suitable or perhaps creating something specially to meet the theme.

Submitting images is dead simple. First, login to the Members page and click on My Images in the left hand menu. When the My Images page opens there are full instructions there on how to add an image to the website and how to submit it as an entry in a Club Project. The same process is used to submit images for Competitions and for Members' Galleries.

Why not take a look now at some of the existing projects and view some really great images. Login to the Members page and click on Club Projects.

Members' Galleries

Why not share your experiences with the rest of the club and submit new, replacement or additional images for the Members’ Galleries? Members now have full control of the images they want to include in their galleries. Just click on Members in the menu bar and, after logging in, choose My Images in the left menu list and follow the instructions. It’s dead easy!!

Gordon Rae - "Wild At Heart"

Gordon is simply just Camera mad. He is a much sought after Freelance Commercial Photographer, an award winning Landscape Photographer, and a multi-award winning Wildlife Photographer. His aim is simple, to produce clean tidy images that fit the brief for his Commercial work, all the way through to the high impact images that he produces from his Wildlife Photography. For more information about Gordon here's a link to his website: http://www.gordonraephotography.co.uk/ .

Hand in BuddyCompetition

This is the hand-in date for our inaugural Buddy Competition.

You can submit digital images up to 8 weeks before the competition date by logging on to the Members page of the website, selecting My Images from the left hand menu and then following the instructions. Print images can be handed in to the club usually up to two weeks in advance of the hand-in date. Instructions for submitting print images can be found on the Information page of the website. If you're submitting prints remember also to submit a digital copy of the print for displaying on the website after the competition.

Unlike our normal digital and print competitions scores awarded do not count towards the annual league table for each category.

Studio Evening - 3

Monday is our third studio night of the season. We usually have two models. We'll try to persuade one of our studio photographers to set up the lights etc, one in the Tack Room (that's the room on the right opposite the Caretaker's room) and one in the main hall. We'll try to organise a fair queuing system so all participants can take their shots. The length of time available with each model will depend on the number of members on the night. Please feel free to bring along any props and accessories, including any items that could be used for still life subjects for anyone who doesn't wish to take portraits.

And don't forget to bring your camera(s)!!
