The View Camera Gathering 2019 - 2 Days


The View Camera Gathering  - 13th Year

Sat 26th & Sun 27th October

NB: Plus Fri Eve 25th October  -5.30 pm to 7.00 pm for meet & greet.

The Gathering was formed in June 2007 developed from a light hearted conversation with Gordon Undy from point light in 2005. The View Camera Gathering is a way like-minded photographers, dedicated to the use of large format cameras can meet to share views, information, and ideas while photographing the villages and districts of Trentham and Trentham East.

Cameras used by the members range from 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14 and 16 x 20 inches.

Open discussions, demonstrations etc encourage the gatherers to share a different way of seeing. Photographers tend to "buddy" up those of a different level or type of experience. No matter what level beginner or advanced  – you are encouraged to ask questions, voice an opinion  -  having  fun is compulsory.
