2021/22 -Top Dog competitions will be held on Zoom until further notice.

We are a small, friendly club that meets at 7.30pm on Thursdays every fortnight from September to April in the Methodist Church, New Street, Halstead. We also hold a Top Dog competition once a month and at the moment this is a virtual meeting via Zoom. We have competitions for prints and digital images, talks from experienced photographers, interclub meets, an annual Twin Towns International Photographic Competition, Club outings and practical workshops where we can get 'hands on' experience.

You don't have to be a good photographer to join. In fact, even if you're thinking about taking up photography then why not come along and meet us? Our members' skills range between beginners and those with photographic distinctions; the people with more advanced knowledge are always happy to help and give practical advice.

We hope you will enjoy this site and maybe come and meet us. You don't have to join to visit, attend a couple of meetings as a visitor if you wish. Full membership and visitors fees are listed on our Membership Information page here. The club prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and guarantees a warm welcome.

Meetings also on YouTube

Meetings from April 2020 to May 2021 are still available to view on YouTube.  Click link below to view.
