Funding Grants

As a community camera club, we are fortunate to get some financial support via a West Lothian Council Community Arts Grant to help in the running of the club.


Introducing our 2016/17 season

Our President, Susan Roberts, welcomed the large number gathered together at Crofthead Farm on the first day of our new season for a "meet and greet" event. She was encouraged to see so many 'kent' faces as well as 17 new members. On display at the event was a selection of members' photos some of which had been included in our annual exhibition which had taken place at the Almondvale Shopping Centre the previous weekend. Clearly, this had been successful enough to encourage so many new members to join the club. Over refreshments existing members introduced themselves to new members with a view to encouraging beginners to photography to take part in club events. Susan also outlined the first few events on this season's Syllabus which she hoped members would find interesting and worthwhile attending. FInally, she introduced her Committee so that new members could put a faces to names.

Club Projects

New members, especially those who are just starting out on the road to more serious photography, may be interested to learn about the club's monthly photography project which takes place on the club's website. This is strictly a members' only project, members of the public will not be able to view any images submitted to a project. It's also a "fun" project; it's not a competition and there are no prizes. Its purpose is to encourage members, especially Beginners, to submit images based on a theme which will change from month to month. And it's also meant to be a challenge for more advanced members to come up with something different. It doesn't matter about the quality of the image - although we hope over time that these will improve with experience. It's more about scanning your catalogue of images for something suitable or perhaps creating something specially to meet the theme.

Submitting images is dead simple. First, login to the Members page and click on My Images in the left hand menu. When the My Images page opens there are full instructions there on how to add an image to the website and how to submit it as an entry in a Club Project. The same process is used to submit images for Competitions and for Members' Galleries.

Why not take a look now at some of the existing projects and view some really great images. Login to the Members page and click on Club Projects.

Members' Galleries

Why not share your experiences with the rest of the club and submit new, replacement or additional images for the Members’ Galleries? Members now have full control of the images they want to include in their galleries. Just click on Members in the menu bar and, after logging in, choose My Images in the left menu list and follow the instructions. It’s dead easy!!

Looking Ahead ...
