Newcomers Cup Results

Congratulation to Rudi Mehta for winning the 2018 Newcomers cup with his fabulous image below.  Rudi will be awarded the trophy at the end of season party where Anthony Highet’s rein as last year’s winner will come to an end…  Also congratulations to Beth Christie for the second place awarded by the judge for her image below.  Great work from both.

Club night summary – 17th January

PDI trophy competition night for both ‘newcomers’ and ‘Triptych’ judged by Julia Cleaver.  Understandably low entries from the newcomers, however this allowed time for good encouraging critique from Julia.

The Triptych competition entries were heralded as a very high standard by the judge who appreciated the additional work and vision required to put three images together that worked.  The judge held back 10 Images to make the final difficult decision on the ultimate winner.

Congratulations to all entrants for the work towards creating good competitions on the night.


Club night summary – 10th January

Workshop evening based on Photography speed. A great Introduction by Cat on the principles, a really enjoyable interactive evening.

Members brought along their camera’s and props to experiment with light and speed combinations. Some very Interesting Images were produced on the night!

Welcome to the new CCC website

Hello Everyone,

Appreciate this has been a long time coming but I have finally have the new website up and running.  Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to run the old site in parallel , so had to do a hard switch-over.

Many thanks to Rich Parmiter for all the pointers and help over the past months..

The blog is where I’ll be posting most of the new content, which I’ll categorise so easy to browse., also the entire site is searchable using the search box on the blog page too.  I’m also keeping a copy of all of this season’s newsletters on the site for easy reference too.

I’ll  keep the galleries up to date with the latest competition results. also keep a record of the images the club is entering into external competitions.  However that’s behind the password protected “External” gallery, and I’ll be revealing what this is at the next club night

If you notice any bugs or issues, or have suggestions for improvements then please come and find me on a Thursday evening!


Club night summary – 3rd January

A change to the planned programme due to the speaker Paul Halliday unable to attend.

In place we viewed and commented on a previous PAGB GB cup which featured many Camera clubs from across the country. An Interesting evening with a lot of excellent Images shown of various styles and diverse subjects.
