Whether you enjoy taking the odd photograph occasionally, or are a serious and prolific photographer, joining a camera club can be an enjoyable and productive way to learn more, practise and share your work with others. Camera clubs tend to meet at a particular time, often weekly. There may be a joining fee, or a fee to pay per meeting, but this will vary depending on the club you choose.
Camera clubs are a way to learn more about photography techniques, and pick up technical tips about your camera. They can prove very positive for new photographers, or those who have a new camera and aren’t sure how to use it to its full potential. Chances are other members will have a lot of experience.
There will also be guest visitors who you can learn new tips and tricks from. Camera clubs put on various talks for their members, so you can learn from the experts. It’s also a chance to practise and share the output with your fellow camera club members. Many clubs will have designated time to go out and take photographs, which can then be loaded up onto a projector so that everyone can share their work.
