I have been an active member of the camera club for many years and enjoy so many aspects of the club including the friendship, the talks, competitions and also the ability to help others with their photography. I have been the publicity secretary since 2019 and am delighted to be the chair in 2022.

Photography Based Weekends

Annual Weekend Away

Each year the club runs a long weekend away in an interesting part of the country for fun, games and photography. 

This is a great social weekend for members and their partners and friends to get together around photography and see and photograph an area we wouldn’t normally visit.

I’ve always had a camera to take family photos but when my children became teenagers they “asked” me to stop taking their photo. I had to find something else to photograph. I was keen to take flower and macro photos but didn’t know how to. I joined the camera club to learn how to use my camera properly and to get off the auto mode. It’s also been great to meet other photographers.
