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.

Our first "real" event of the 2017-18 season is a presentation by Caroline Trotter entitled "Food Photography"

Caroline lives in Fife overlooking the sea, with her husband – food writer and chef, Christopher Trotter, two jackadoodles, 4 hens and Mac Cat. She has been a photographer for several years now - about 30 years in fact - but through word of mouth and the inevitable networking she has been full time for about 8 years. She is a member of the Master Photographers Association and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. According to her website - "She LOVES her job". Here's a link so that you can check it out for yourselves: https://carolinetrotter.co.uk/

Bruce Harley - "Travel Photography: My Gap Years Discovered"

We welcome member Bruce Harley to present his talk entitled “Travel Photography – My Gap Years Discovered”. An intriguing title!

Bruce joined the camera club only last year but already we have seen some outstanding images both in competitions and in audio-visual shows. Clearly, Bruce is a very experienced photographer with an eye for what makes a great photograph. He believes that Travel Photography is a sub-category of photography involving the documentation of an area's landscape, people, cultures, customs and history.  An interesting and enlightening evening awaits us all. 

If you want to see some of Bruce’s images before the event here are links to Bruce’s ePHOTOzine pages :https://www.ephotozine.com/user/munrowalker-260805/portfolio#nogo and his Flikr pages: https://www.flickr.com/photos/trustdogs
