Camera Clubs: A Great Way to Meet Like-Minded People, Learn and Have Fun

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is well with you.

Today I want to mention about Camera Clubs.

You see, over the past year I’ve started giving talks to camera clubs; talks covering all kinds of topics such as:

  • Who I am / How I started
  • Mistakes Made / Lessons Learned
  • Stories Behind the Pictures
  • Planning and Preparation
  • Inspiration
  • How to Photograph ‘Anyone’

and so on…

PLUS at the end of the talks which are generally around 2 hours or so in duration, I go through some Photoshop Retouching Tips, Tricks and Techniques.

I’ve never been a member of a camera club, so before starting to give talks I never knew such organisations existed; really active groups that hold weekly get togethers, outings, photography competitions and more…

It’s also great to see such a wide age range of members too…young learning from old or rather newbies learning from the more experienced 🙂

If you’re a member of a camera club looking for speakers then I’d love to hear from you; it’s always good to get out and meet new faces.

Feel free to contact me at glyn@www.glyndewis.com or on my mobile (details on the contact page)

So what about you…do you belong to a camera club? If so, how long for and why?

Have a great Tuesday whatever you’re up to and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.

Enjoy,
Glyn

    Been after starting one myself and planning a day out with a few camera heads from my work soon. I’ve even got one of them onto Photoshop after seeing what can be done with it, and before he was pretty anti Photoshop!
    We all get the same rest days too so am thinking of getting us all to chip in with hiring a studio and having a clear goal in mind like a movie poster, get some pics and then walk them through the process in Photoshop afterwards.

    Camera clubs are womderful places to learn, have fun and explore your local city with like minded individuals. I joined one four years ago originally with my Dad. Dad has left but I am now VP of programs. It is a club in Toronto but you can check out our ever evolving website http://www.donmillscameraclub.org. We are going into our 50th year.

    Forgot to add that I’m sure you can see where I get my inspiration for the latter part from. Very inspired by your workshops mate, and just totally inspired to become a teacher after seeing how you do what you do. Couldn’t help thinking on Sunday that you should be teaching in schools, wether as part of the curriculum or if not as like an after school club.
