Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club welcome some of the best Photography Speakers in the UK
Get more out of your photography – learn the tricks of the trade including using Affinity and Photoshop software
Get regular critiques of your images from independent judges from across the East Anglian district and pit your wits against your fellow members
For those occasions when you can’t join in person we offer members the ability to watch many talks and competitions online through Zoom
The club has a really strong social side including a full Summer Programme where we go out across the region photographing what we come across
Just a few of the fantastic speakers that we’ve had recently include:
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.
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.
Open to all, our popular Tuesday evening walks over the summer break are a great way to meet existing members and improve your photography in a social setting.
Every year we hold an Exhibition for the public to see our images. Held in the centre of Bishop’s Stortford this is a popular event following which we have a celebratory dinner and awards ceremony.
