The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography.
Our Autumn Exhibition in Waterstone’s Bookshop in Bolton has ended, and we thank the 339 members of the public who took time to vote for their favourite print.
The winning print was “Little Owl” by Richard Towell.
All the titles and photographers can be seen by opening the list below, along with the public votes cast.
This had been our largest exhibition of prints in Waterstone’s with 48 prints on display, and we a grateful for the many favourable comments on some of the voting slips.
We thank the manager and staff at Waterstone’s for allowing us space to set up our exhibition and we look forward to our next display in the Spring.

Tony Duffey had a formidable task on his hands when he came to judge our final theme competition of 2015. 57 submissions from members either as prints or digital projected images were to be assessed and scored. Tony felt all the images met the requirements of the theme, although he detected that some members had merely looked through their portfolios to see if they had anything to fit, rather than producing original work for the competition. Nevertheless he was impressed with the overall standard of the work submitted.
Since this was the last round of the year, we now have a winner of the Roy Williamson trophy in Phil Durkin. Well done Phil. The trophy will be presented early in the new year.
As usual, we have some of the high scoring images shown below, together with the score sheets.
|"Flamingo Feathers" by Richard Towell||"A Touch of the Masters" by John Morris|
