From the Chair...

One of the many great things about being in Croxley camera club is the opportunity to express your own photography Interests with other like minded members.
We have many talented members who are happy to share their experiences and often Inspire others to try different techniques or style of Images. Everything we do is naturally under the ‘umbrella of art’.

Last week for our online meeting, we had a video/ AV evening where members were Invited to share with others, either a video or audio visual presentation on any subject and with suitable accompanying music.
We had 17 entries which made for a very entertaining evening, with some really considered content and great music.

Once again the commitment to Inspire others with the the creative thoughts of subject matter and choice of music, was evident by the quality offered from all.
We were treated to some excellent photography, expressing the story the authors had to tell with the really well chosen and meaningful music.

Thank you to everyone that attended the evening and a special thanks to those who entered material to be shown, it really was appreciated by all.
Special thanks also to George who organised the showing of the videos and smoothly controlled the technical aspects.


2019/20 Trophy Winners

In light of the current climate, we have not been able to hold our traditional trophy presentation to celebrate our 2019/20 winners.

Of course we still want to ensure our newly crowned winners receive their trophies.  Whilst we acknowledge the circumstances are less than ideal, the club asks that in these unprecedented circumstances, existing holders arrange a convenient time to hand trophies to their new guardians.  Once handovers are complete, please email Vanessa to let her know.  Certificates are also available by email, that can be printed at home.

Full details of which trophy needs to go where are available in the members area of the Club website.

If you need any additional information or have any queries regarding the transfer of trophies, please contact a member of the committee.
