Camera Club Hall of Fame

Being a member of UK Camera Club World, I thought I’d share my successes with us and also gives me a record of what I’ve achieved!  I belong to two camera clubs in Leicestershire, Earl Shilton Camera Club, ex Programme Secretary, and Leicester Forest Photographic Society.  I have been in Earl Shilton for nearly eight years having joined in the 2007/08 season.  I have been a member at Leicester Forest for 5 years having progressed from Group C to Group A in that time.

After moving up to Group A, the elite group, at LFPS for the 2013/14 season, it was apparent that I was not ready for such an immediate rise, but all of a sudden Group A had raised its game considerably, at least since I first joined.  Other new members, who had been successful at their previous clubs, were now in the mix, making Group A a very competitive group.  In all the competitions this showed as judge after judge had real problems separating the winners.  As I did not have any images particularly ready for Group A, I was not surprised that I was wasn’t place, but a little suprised to see some of the images that I had entered, get “across to the other side” only to be culled at the “nitty gritty” stage.   For the 2014/15 season, I did not enter a single Group A competition.  There are various reasons why, which I will decline to go into here, but nothing to do with the club nor the judging.  So to 2015/16, where hopefully I’ll be competitive again.  Fingers crossed!
