Chesham Photo Club is taking part in this year’s two week “Reasons to be Cheerful” art festival. There will be displays of prints created by our own members and exhibits by local artists in many shop windows, cafes and public buildings. The objective of the festival is to raise awareness of the many talented artists and photographers in Chesham.
Trail maps will be available in the Town Hall and Library. There will also be free drop-in art sessions on April 13 at the Adult Learning Centre (10am – 4pm) and on April 20 at the Town Hall (10am – 1pm). Chesham Lacemakers will be demonstrating at the Town Hall too.
Our prints will be on show in M & Co. An event not to be missed!
In accordance with the club’s constitution, notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the club will be held on Tuesday 30th April 2013 commencing at 8pm.
If you have any items you wish included on the agenda please let the Secretary know as soon as possible and in any event before the 23rd April 2013.

On Tuesday 22 January we had a very successful evening devoted to colour profiling (by Geoff and Laurie) and portraiture (by Carl). It is hoped to build on this with other similar tuition meetings in the future. If you have ideas for suitable topics feel free to “Leave a comment” in response to this post.
Geoff has kindly agreed to make his presentation available to us as a PDF, and you can find it in the Members’ area.

On Monday 15 October, 13 club members attended a free mount cutting demonstration evening organised by DIY Framing in High Wycombe. Richard covered many aspects of mounting, including choosing the right shape and proportions for the image being mounted, and two types of mounting: the hinge mount and the double mount.
On Saturday 20th October Chesham Photographic Club will be hosting its 48th Annual Exhibition at the Town Hall between 10am & 4pm.
In addition to the main exhibition there will also be an Audio-visual show, tombola and a selection of works for sale. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and visitors will be able to vote for their favourite picture in the exhibition.
Our opening meeting of the season included the much anticipated presentation ceremony postponed from last April. Tanya took photos of several of the recipients, including one of our Chairman Laurie (shown on the right of the picture) receiving his certificate from Chris, the club’s President.

Phil (left) receiving his award
Phil Ellis, our hardworking Treasurer and Webmaster has received a wonderful honour from the Royal Photographic Society. Phil was awarded the RPS Fenton Medal on 6 September 2012 at the Royal Society in London, where the Royal Photographic Society held their Annual Awards Ceremony.
The prestigious Fenton Medal award, established in 1980, is named after Roger Fenton, one of the Society’s founders, and is made to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the work of The Royal Photographic Society. The medal also carries with it honorary life membership of The Society.
Mr Roy Robertson (RPS President) presented the awards. Phil shared centre stage with Dr Brian May (the legendary guitarist from the rock group Queen) and Steve Sasson (widely acknowledged as the inventor of the first digital camera). Phil, who was accompanied by his wife Rosemary, said the day was a double celebration as it was also his wedding anniversary!
Full details of all the awards can be found on the RPS website
