St Helens Camera Club's exhibition attracted record viewers
11:00am Monday 28th April 2014 in News
ST HELENS Camera Club is celebrating an exhibition at the World of Glass, which saw a record number of visitors viewing the photography on show.
Images were on display in the Godfrey Pilkington Gallery and Mezzanine floor at The World of Glass.
And after its latest exhibition, the club is calling for people to become involved and make the most of the digital technologies at their disposal.
Club secretary John Fairclough, who joined in 1988 after his wife suggested it as a hobby, has since become a natural history and wildlife photographer.
John said: “It’s all about taking photographs and having fun.
“Photography is really booming these days with the change to digital. People are using their phones and computers and no longer have to worry about using chemicals and having a darkroom to develop their images.
“Lots of people are now coming into the hobby and when they see the range of areas in our exhibitions – from landscapes and portraits to wildlife and sport – they often want to get involved.”
Anyone interested is invited to drop into the club’s Monday night meetings at the St Helens Police Club on Bishop Road, or visit sthelenscameraclub.org.uk.
John Fairclough took the wildlife photo in Zimbabwe and Tillman Kleinhans the spiral staircase.
