David Clapp - January 3rd 2017

 

This was a great success with South-West celebrated landscape and travel photographer David Clapp visiting us.  The number of vistors almost exceeded that of members present with an audience of 43!  David showed us some outstanding images and talked about his experiences as a professional photographer and his travels and hard work that led up to realising his images. We all thoroughly enjoyed this evening.  Plymstock Camera Club thanks both David and all the visitors that attended on the evening for making it such a success.  Please come again we would love to see you.

 

      

 

Information

For prospective new members the maximum mount and print size is 500mm x 400mm.  Prints are required to be mounted as our stands do not otherwise support them.  We encourage all members to use 500mm x 400mm mounts as standard however the image can be any size within that.

 

nb  New members can be shown the various mounting methods if requested as we encourage the printing and mounting of images. 

 

The PRINT evenings are always popular so why not come along if you are a prospective new member to see our work?

 

 

The new season has started!

 

Do you fancy seeing how you might improve or get your images in front of an appreciative audience then please consider joining our club?  We always welcome new members.  

 

New members are especially welcome at any point in the season however why not take that step now at the start of our 2016-2017 season?  We would all be very pleased to see you.
