Two members of Weymouth Camera Club, Steve Baker and Chris Eaves gave a presentation and talk to the Weymouth Ladies Probus group recently in July. Their presentation addressed photography as a subject also and a sideshow of some of the work of Weymouth Camera Club members.
Weymouth Camera Club members Chris Eaves and Ted Toop were invited once more to judge the photography section of Wyke Regis Horticulture’s Annual Show on 27th July. This is the 3rd or possibly 4th time that members of the Camera Club have been pleased to attend and judge the images submitted by WRH members.
Due to the forecasted bad weather for Tuesday night the 20 shot competition has been postponed until Tuesday the 25th. Hopefully we will get a better evening

The Annual Brian Lynch Challenge between Weymouth and Portland Camera Clubs was held in Weymouth on 26th February. There were a total of 70 images; 35 from both clubs. The photographs featured a wide range of subjects from close-ups to landscapes. Each photograph was awarded marks out of 10 and the marks were added together at the end of the evening to reveal the winning club who would then be awarded the Brian Lynch Trophy. We are pleased to announce that Weymouth won the challenge with a total of 304 points over Portland’s 289. The photograph that won the title of ‘best of the evening’ was ‘Misty Morning’ by Weymouth Club photographer Don Hart. The Judge for the evening was John Tilsley.
Weymouth Camera Club are delighted to announce that Karen, our model for our Portrait Workshop recently, has been offered a part in the forthcoming production ‘Ammonite’ that is being filmed in Lyme Regis this year. The encouraging news for the Camera Club is that when Karen was asked to provide photographs of herself, she used the ones that were taken by club members Ed. Coleman, Mick Rose and Chris Eaves. We extend our warmest congratulations to Karen and we like to think that we played a small part in her success.
The result of the 20 shot competition and summer outings are as follows
