OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA by Jon George Chairman
Hello, my name is Jon George, as this year’s chairman, may I take this opportunity of welcoming you to the website of Compton G Camera Club. Thank you for visiting. I hope you find it informative and of interest whether you are a relative newcomer to photography, or an experienced enthusiast.
We are a friendly, non competitive club and, unusually, meet during the daytime, on a Wednesday morning between 10 and 12 , September to May, at Tettenhall Wood institute. Our members have varied photographic interests and are always willing to offer help and constructive criticism to anyone who requires it. We have a varied and interesting program with both visiting and “home grown” speakers, and also practical sessions and outside visits to places of photographic opportunity.
I hope the website encourages you to join us, and look forward to meeting and talking with you in the future.
Thanks for your time.
Jon George (Chairman)
