Join in with this new beginning at this well established club!
After a successful 80th anniversary summer exhibition of photography in the Bingham Gallery, Cirencester, the Cirencester Camera Club enters its 81st season with its first club meeting on Monday, 2nd September 7.30pm at the Parish Centre, Gosditch Street, Cirencester, GL7 2AG.
Joint Programme Secretary, Martyn Smith said “We have a terrific programme organised for this season with expert speakers covering, photojournalism, sports, street, astro, landscape and many other topics. It’s also great to have talented club members speaking on iPhone, nighttime, travel and portrait photography and we are also very fortunate to have a leading camera manufacturer instructing us on a practical photography day. All this plus our regular, professionally judged, club competitions throughout the year together with competitions against other Camera clubs, is going to make for an exciting club year.
Club Chairman, Mike Cheeseman added “Our membership covers all ages and skill levels and with encouragement from our established members, we encourage everyone to improve their photography skills on whatever camera they own. We are always delighted to see new faces when we meet in September. Our Club season runs from September to May on Monday nights from 7.30pm – 9.30pm with a break for tea and coffee in a very convivial atmosphere. I’m really looking forward to another enjoyable and informative year.”
