Rex Coleman (Chairman)
Rex is retired now and would recommend retirement to anyone wishing to take it up. His interest in photography started at a early age but it wasn't until serving with HM Forces in Germany that he bought his first "serious" camera a Voigtlander Vito B, which he still has. He used this camera for many years taking mainly 35mm slides until being introduced to Canon products by his brother in law.
Since this time he has been a enthusiastic user of Canon products, cameras, lenses and printers although he does recognise that Nikon make a decent camera! He enjoys being a member of the BECC and feels that the competitions within the club have stretched him into areas of photography that he would not have ventured in to otherwise
Chris Robertson (Competition Secretary)
Chris is a engineer from Coventry who joined BECC in early 2013. His interest in photography was sparked from the disappointment of a great day out spoiled by poor photographs.
With the encouragement of a friend he joined BECC and hasn't looked back. Thanks to the help and advice from the members at BECC his results have improved greatly. However there is still much to learn and Chris is looking forward to improving further in the years to come.
Chris had always taken "snaps"; the usual stuff, family, holidays Etc. Chris moved to digital in January 2008 with the Canon SX 10. He joined BECC in January 2012 and he is now getting to grips with a Canon EOS 70D. Chris has won multiple awards over the last 4 years in the Nuneaton Festival of Arts.
Dave is a Canon shooter and currently uses a 7D, His passion is motor sports but loves photography in general and is currently working on his post process skills.
Dave is working full-time at being retired but when he gets a moment he takes pictures of more or less anything on his Sony digital compact or his Canon DSLR. He started with a Taron half-frame in 1965 and used various Miranda, Minolta, Canon, Zorki and Nettar models before switching to digital about two years ago.But he still has an enlarger - for nostalgia, and for his children to take to an Antiques Roadshow one day.
Graham works as a wood machinist, and is a qualified PCV Driving Instructor.He shoots with Nikon, Currently a D7100. He enjoys shooting Landscape & Historic ruins.But also has a passion for studio portraiture, and a guilty pleasure for special effects.
Paul Stokes(Club Treasurer)
I have always enjoyed photography, starting off with 35mm slides in my earlier years but have never really had the time to get involved as I was self employed. Things got more serious when my grandsons began to play football, which developed my interest in taking action shots with a Konica Minolta Dynax 5D. As time went on I invested in new Canon equipment and now that I have finally retired I intend to spend more time on wildlife photography which is my real passion. I love all aspects of photography, landscape and macro. Looking through the lens and seeing images close up reveals a complete new world which the eye does not see.
I have been with Bedworth & Exhall Camera Club for 3 years now and find it a friendly place where people exchange views, information and techniques to develop their photographic skills.
