05th September 2016 - 0 comments
Welcome to the 2016/17 season for Bookham Camera Club.
After a great year celebrating our 70th Anniversary we are looking forward to a programme which has both familiar elements and some new initiatives. The Newsletter for September is available here.
We start on Thursday 8th September with a visiting speaker - Steve Lewis, talking about a photographic essay of London’s East End in the 1960s.
Bookham Camera Club continues its mission to be a club that is active, informative, engaging, inclusive and enjoyable. We look forward to welcoming all our members, both old and new as we launch the 71st season of the club.

We hope to see as many of you as possible for the first evening of our new season when we'll see the stunning flower pictures by Andy Small.
This should be the start of a great season where we've blended tried and trusted favourites with new types of evening. We're proud of the selection of speakers we have procured, including those not on the standard camera club 'circuit' which we are really looking forward to.
17th September is the first internal competition - don't get caught out by the rule changes or the change of competition email address (we're were getting massive amounts of offensive spam to the old one.) It is the plural of the previous one.

The latest newsletter is also online here.

We would like to draw your attention to the rules for the next set subject competition - 'UK Nature'. Details here. One thing to point out is that judges are disdainful of glib titles in Nature and Wildlife competitions. You will be docked marks if you do not 'stick to the facts' about the subject and its environment. As usual, click on the picture for more.
