2020/21 All meetings for the current season are Virtual via Zoom

We are a small, friendly club that in normal times 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 virtual. We have competitions for prints and digital images, talks from experienced photographers, virtual interclub meets, an annual Twin Towns International Photographic Competition, Club outings (where feasible in the current circumstances) and practical (virtual) 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 watch? 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 virtual Zoom 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

If you are unable to join our meetings via Zoom they can be viewed live on our YouTube channel and shortly afterwards from the link below.
