March preview

Kinross Camera Club

Kinross Camera Club is a very friendly group and welcomes everyone interested in photography whether you are experienced or a beginner or would just like to meet up with others with a similar interest. We would love to see you at one of our club nights on Thursdays which are held via Zoom at 19.30 ( virtual doors open from 19.20 ) If you would like to join the club or find out more about what we do, please contact

We have a great line up of evenings in March. We begin the month with talks by club members Bill Paton and John StClair. Bill will be treating us all, using his fantastic images, to journey with him to Australia and John will be entertaining and inspiring us all with a talk called ‘Another Photo Miscellany’.
On the 11th March we have our League 3 Competition judged by Charles Summers and on 18th March we will be welcoming an exceptionally talented amateur photographer Joe Gilhooley from Loanhead, Midlothian to present his talk ‘If I Can Do It, So Can You’. Our annual joint meeting with Scotish Wildlife Trust will be held on 25th March. This year we are very excited and honoured to be welcoming Moira Gardner FRPS from Fife to present her talk ‘Wildlife of Costa Rica, Peru and Ecuador’. We are very much looking forward to seeing her stunning images of exotic wildlife and to hear first hand about her incredible photography adventures to South America.

Start of new season

Our 2020-21 season has got off to a great start this September. On our opening night on the 10th we were treated to a preview of the new Syllabus, we announced the winners of all of last years trophies, and Stewart Niven gave us an excellent slide show of a circumnavigation round Iceland.

Our first external speaker was Neil Scott on the 17th. Neil is well known in Scottish photography being an SPF judge and a long serving member of both the Edinburgh Photographic Society and Midlothian Camera Club. His talk ‘In my mind’s eye’ was a thought-provoking and visually rewarding exploration of his approach to creating images.

‘Virtual’ syllabus for 2020-21

In these times of coronavirus we have had to adapt how we function. As a result we are unable to meet physically so we have developed a fully online ‘virtual’ syllabus. Our meetings will be using the Zoom video conference software.

We have been using Zoom very successfully since lockdown started in March and we continued meeting in that way right through the summer. Attendance has been very healthy and it has been a wonderful way of keeping in touch with each other and up to date with our photography.

You can find out what’s in store for the new season on our Syllabus page.

Digital Developing Live!

On Thursday 25th June we welcome back Joe Houghton to our Virtual Club Night at the earlier than usual time of 19:00. Joe will be take images which members have submitted and ‘develop’ them live in Lightroom. It will be a fascinating to see how another photographer processes one’s image and there’s bound to be software tricks to learn too!

Extraordinary General Meeting

An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) will be held on 5th December 2019. The purpose of the EGM is to allow Club members to vote on a revision to the Constitution which the committee are proposing. A copy of the proposed amended Constitution can be found here.

New Syllabus is here!

Our new Syllabus for 2019-2020 which starts on Thursday 12th September 2019 is available on the Syllabus page. This is packed with excellent speakers, instructional talks, entertaining club nights and helpful practical sessions. Hope you like it! Duncan.
