In the Shadows by Ian Chanter


























Plymstock Camera Club is a friendly well established club with a thriving membership. The club always welcomes newcomers whether experienced photographers or complete beginners. 

We offer a broad range of improvement, how-to and practical evenings, internal and inter-club competitions, critique evenings, lectures and instruction by experienced photographers as well as inspirational speakers.  

As a club we seek to faciltate what the membership wants as well as educate and broaden everyones skills.

You would be welcome to come along as our guest to see if we are the club for you.


For the 2019-2020 season we will meet every Tuesday 7.45pm-10pm from September through to April at:

Next meeting Tuesday 21st January 2020


We have the 3rd of the Print League competitions on Tuesday, with the subjects "Leading Lines" and "Own Choice".  These are always popular evenings with a good display of members own work and the chance to vote on your favourites.


As usual we welcome visitors to join us, why don't you come along - perhaps you had a new camera or lens for Christmas, perhaps a book that has stimulated your interest.  You can come along to see if you enjoy our company and if you would like to join, you can do this after for half price.


Members are also reminded that Print entries for the Wildlife Trophy and DPI entries for the Landscape/Seascape Trophy are due in tonight.





Clean Sweep by Plymstock Camera Club at the Inaugural Interclub Alliance Event


On the 20th November, Plymstock Camera Club, Kingsbridge & District Camera Club, and Ivybridge Camera Club were hosted by Plymouth and District Camera Club for the opening opening Alliance Event. 

The evening and the 60 images were judged by Brian Northmore. 

We are proud to announce that Plmstock Camera Club received the highest total vote for its set of images from the Judge and Plymstock Camera Club member Ian Douglas, received 20/20 for his image (as below) Elgar Views Heriford Cathedral. 



There was an additional category where each of the clubs had in turn voted on the other 3 camera clubs images.  A statistical survey was carried out to determine which clubs' members voted nearest that of the final independent judge.  Following this survey Plymstock also triumphed in this area.

It was a great night and although there were one or two teething problems, Mr Brian Northmore did a great job appraising the images and awarding a score.  




Prospective New Members Welcome!


Whether you've been thinking about it sometime or you have a new interest in photography, please come and visit our club.  We pride ourselves on being the friendliest club in the region and you will be most welcome.  You can attend for two weeks without having to formally join.  We do charge 2.50 but that does include a nice cuppa and biscuit and a worthwhile raffle ticket.


Unlike other clubs we are a growing club with a programme that is strongly influenced by the members and we are sure you would enjoy any evenings with us. 


Why not come along as the evenings grow darker and enjoy many fantastic images and photographic discussions.  Last season 688 images were entered by members into our competitions with a mixture of both print and digitally projected images (DPI) covering every subject and genre imaginable.


We look forward to seeing you. 



3rd September 2019 - The New Season Has Arrived


It was great to see the returning members and we all had a lot to say to each other following the summer recess.  Our Chair Lesley briefed the membership on progress and minor rule changes for the forthcoming season and then handed over to our External Competition Secretary Matt who restated the aims and procedures of the exciting new Photographic alliance (The Alliance) with Ivybridge Camera Club, Kingsbridge Camera Club and Plymouth and District Camera Club.  In the break a sub committee had felt that our initial entry should be derived from the last 2 years WCPF DPIC entries (Western Counties Photographic Federation, Digitally Projected Image Compeititon).  These were then voted on by all members present in the 2nd half of the evening.




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.
