New camera club seeks members

A NEW club for photography enthusiasts in the East Clare area is on the cards.
The organisation, likely to get off the ground early next year, is the brainchild of well known photographer James Treacy.
The Scariff man said he is currently looking to sign up new members for The East Clare Camera Club, which will involve a range of social and support activities for people in the region.
Mr Treacy is currently running courses in Scariff and believes the interest in learning the skill is proof that a club would be a valuable amenity for the community.
Already, Mr Treacy is anticipating that the club will run competitions every week and create a photography league.
Members of the club will be encouraged to enter competitions nationwide and apply for membership of the Irish Photographic Federation
As a former member of the Shannon Camera Club, Mr Treacy is drawing on the expertise of that group to help him with setting up the East Clare club. While he hasn’t got a date for the first meeting of the East Clare Camera, it is likely to start up after Christmas. He can be contacted on 061-921470 or 086-0572216, or at jamestreacyphotography@gmail.com.
