It was the brainchild of Dr Anand Patil, s who chose to go beyond dentistry, and introduce this Innovative Practice at the KLE Dental College. Since its inception in September 2012, the club has indeed boasted about teaching young dentists in the offing to find a fine balance between their clinical acumen and the flame of going click-click with the camera. It has conducted a plethora of activities all throughout, some of them being Club Logo Design and Naming Competition, Workshop on Basic Photography skills by Mr. Jaswinder, Photography contest during Annual Week College Celebration and a Webpage on Flickr and Facebook, with a monthly theme based competition. The winner each month gets to choose the theme for the next month’s competition.
The club now comprises a strength of 50 sincere, and avid amateur photographers- staff and students alike, who, apart from being dental technocrats, are extremely passionate about their camera and lenses.
The inauguration event saw the distribution of the official badges to the members of the club by the Chief Guests, and an array of beautifully clicked photographs by the members of the Clickr Kids group.
The exhibition shall continue for 2 days, and the organizers extend a warm invitation to one and all to come and visit the display.
