Wild Wight Camera Club Q & A
Q: Do I need a camera or be knowledgeable about photography to join the Wild Wight Camera Club ?
A: No , Wild Wight camera Club openly welcomes members of any level of photography,from complete begin to professional level .
Q: Do I need to own high end photography equipment to join the Wild Wight Camera Club?
A: No , it is always wise to remember a typewriter never wrote a great novel .
The camera is a peice of equipment used to record what we see , it is the photographer who makes
the photograph not the camera.A simple point and shoot is still capable of producing a stunning image.
Q: How do I know if becoming a member of the Wild Wight Camera Club is right for me to help expand my photography skills and knowledge
A: The club prides itself on its friendly and relaxed atmosphere which we feel is vital in helping club members who are new to photography gain confidence with the camera.
Q: If I do decide to take up a membership , do I need to attend the regular monthly meetings ?
A: No , Once you have taken up a membership , you are welcome to attend as many meetings as you wish . Our monthly meetings are a popular way for club members to not only get together as a group to share their photography knowledge but to become involved with the clubs schedules. We are not run in a traditional photography group format , Wild Wight Camera Club is steered by its club members who are actively encouraged to help direct each months photography content..There are plenty of exciting organised photography days out and trips throughout the year you may wish to attend along with other club members .
Q:Can I take out a membership halfway through the year?
A: Yes of course. The Wild Wight Camera Club annual membership is due on the 1st January each year at a cost of £24.00 per year (Island based photographers) or £12.00 per year for associate members (mainland based )
Our membership runs on a sliding scale ,join in Feb £22 , March £20 , April £18 etc .
Q:Can I attend a Wild Wight Camera Club meeting if I am not a member ?
A: Yes. Non members are welcome to join club members at a regular monthly meeting in order to see if the club is right for you. We do ask for a small attendance fee of £2.00 per non member ,which should you decide to take up a membership on the night will be deducted from your membership fee.
Q: Once I am a Club member can I bring friends with me on any of the organised photography trips ?
A: Our Club members pay an annual membership that entitles them to join the monthly meetings ,organised trips , days out etc, therefore , unfortunatley we do not permit non members to join club members on organised trips , days out etc as it would be unfair on Club members who have paid a full membership in order to join in the photography activities or make use of any photography tuition being given. The only exception to this rule ,would be if club members have organised their own event.
