I have never been a Camera club member before recently joining DVCC. I have in one way or another had a camera since I was eight years of age, so why join a camera club now ? Being Autistic, the boundary of [transferring from being] a lone photographer to [having] an association with a group is a difficult boundary to cross; but lone photography is, as it says on the tin, a lonely place; with a tendency to specialise in one aspect of photography i.e.. wildlife, and coming from a background of being a very successful failure, I feel now that joining DVCC has opened my horizons to many different aspects and styles [of photography] and in just a few months; having never entered any sort of competition before, I am having photographs considered for the YPU: "Amazing!" I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of DVCC for their warm and friendly welcome and specially President Gill and Secretary for their helpful comments and advice, and finally my loving and patient partner, who quickly became disillusioned with hiding in hedges taking photos of small mammals and suggested; no insisted, we join DVCC. The Journey continues…

The fact that we are growing and retaining members shows that we as a club are doing something right.

[DVCC] seems to be a well-oiled machine - definitely more dynamic than the olden days. As I said before I was impressed with the website and the schedule of events. I also like the charity/community elements and would like to get involved with those in the future. And again I enjoy the newsletter (which reminds me I must read this weeks!)... not really checked out the Facebook page of the 52 week challenge - but I will do!

I have been a member of DVCC since about 2010. I moved from being a member of a Doncaster club, then having moved to the Dearne Valley, decided to transfer to a club nearer to my home. DVCC did go through big changes, and for the last 5 yrs has changed dramatically in its approach and ethos. Having had experience with other Yorkshire Camera Clubs, which tend to be "traditional", DVCC is on its own with its approach to photography; its relationship with the membership and the Community work that it is involved with. The key word is "inclusivity" in all respects. Members vary from award-winning long standing photographers, to members who have just acquired their first camera, and all members are as important as each other. Honest help and appraisal is ALWAYS available to any member who needs it. The range of photo opportunities is extremely wide and varied and members are encouraged, without ANY pressure, to attempt all subjects and to gain knowledge to be able to pick up their camera and feel confident in any situation. We strive to make DVCC a pleasant and informative club for all to enjoy. With online and live clubroom platforms, it gives all members a wide choice of contact and help from the club. It's all about friendliness and learning and … THERE IS NO ELITISM AT DVCC.

People are really friendly and welcoming. A diverse range of skills and talents at all levels. Also like the range of topics covered and the opportunity for community work attracts me.
