Selsey Camera Club

Photobook Talk by Roger Crocombe ARPS

The fifteen members and visitors attending St Wilfrid’s on Monday 30th September were treated to a most fascinating talk by Roger Crocombe about his techniques for producing photobooks together with some extremely useful information about photo printing service made available to local camera clubs by the University of Chichester.

However, before the meeting proper got underway, we welcomed Ronelle, the winner of our Summer Exhibition raffle, who was presented with the print she had chosen, "Unique as a Fingerprint" by the picture’s photographer David Richardson.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer David Nicholls

At our next meeting at 7.30pm on Monday 14th October we will hold a competition for the Selsey Camera Club Trophy.

This is an open monochrome print competition (any subject) with a maximum entry of five prints per member. Please make sure that your name and print title are clearly marked on the back and also number your prints in order of preference just in case we need to reduce the maximum prints per member to four in the event of too many entries (unlikely).

The deadline for accepting entries is noon on Sunday 13th October. Entries should be delivered to Tony's house - please call him on 604689 to arrange a mutually convenient delivery time.

Cheers!-2

I am a great believer in community spirit, that curious quality, a sort of glue, that brings people together and makes a village run

When I arrived in Selsey in 1968 I found all I needed except what? ?

Being a photographer for my working life and mostly enjoying it, I realised that this was it, a photographic club. There wasn't one so I started one! That was how the Selsey Camera Club was born.

It was very satisfying to see the Club settle in and start to grow but after three years my itchy feet got the better of me and it was time to move on. As it was the least expensive place we decided that Australia was the place to be and so we became Ten Pound Poms!

As electronics and e-mail have improved greatly keeping in touch with the Selsey Camera Club is easy and it is so satisfying to see it firmly set in as part of Selsey life.

I'm unable to visit you to help celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary but I have already started saving for the next 50th so start planning.

George Abel. (Australia 2019)
