Club Member Matt Curtin achieves success in BBC Radio Devon Photographic Competition

 

Last summer BBC Radio Devon ran a competition to find 20 great images that celebrate where we live.  They wanted to celebrate our county and the talented photographers who capture so many amazing images of life here in Devon. The winning images are to be blown up and used to cover the BBC broadcast vehicles which are seen by thousands of people across the region.  

 

Matt's image of Plymouth Hoe (displayed below) was one of the winning images.

 

Well done Matt and many congratulations from all your friends at the club

 

All 20 images can be viewed at the National Park Visitor Centre, Princetown until the 17th April.  They are open 7 days a week, 10-5pm.

Plymstock Camera Club at the Plymstock Fair

 

 

Saturday September 1st saw Plymstock Camera Club committee and members setting up a fantastic print and rolling digital display of images at the annual Plymstock Fair which had not taken place last year.  Many visitors to the fair took time to view and discuss the images with members that were present.  The display looked great.  One ex-member who visited stated the standard had indeed gone up!

 

 

 

The above image shows a few of the visitors clearly very interested in what was on display. 

 

Watch out in the local South Hams Gazette as one of their contributing photographers took a press photo of a few of the memebers attending.
