Nord, Crescent Beach Photo Club
I bought my first quality camera when I was about 20 years old, A German Kodak Retina 111 c 35mm range-finder camera. I still have it but no longer use it. I got into SLR cameras in the early 1980's and joined the Crescent Beach Photo Club in 1986. I set up our club wet darkroom and printed black & white as well a Ciba Chrome prints from slides until I got involved with digital printing and now do most of my own printing with an Epson 2200 inkjet printer.
As a club member I have held the following positions: Darkroom Chair, Print and exhibition chair and Digital Slide Chair. I have held a executive position with our club for over 20 years.
I have been a CAPA member for several years and have attended the judging course twice.

Lynne R. Kelman,
one of the jurors had some ideas on CPC competition:
"Thank you for inviting me to be a judge at the Caroun Photo Club in September. I enjoyed meeting with Masoud and seeing your home and gallery of work. I congratulate all the photographers who took part in the competition, your work was inspirational. I find that in judging other photographers work that I learn a lot about my own
photography. Your work inspires me and when I am having trouble finding subject matter for my photography, I cast my mind back to others work and it pushes me on.
I really enjoyed viewing your members work and found it quite inspirational. Many congratulations to some fine photographers.
Please feel free to join us, as guests of Crescent Beach Photography Club, at any time and we will endeavour to keep you informed when we have interesting programs that you might enjoy."
