About Us

Our club prides itself on a friendly atmosphere and offers a warm welcome to everyone interested in photography, at whatever level.

In 1957 a small group of friends with a keen interest in photography met in a room at The White Horse pub and from these informal meetings our camera club was born.  Although now organized on a more formal basis, a warm friendly atmosphere continues, and the club is open to anyone with an interest in photography, either actively or as a spectator.

Affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the East Anglian Federation (EAF), the club has access to knowledgeable speakers and judges.

The annual programme includes talks given by guest speakers, print and projected image competitions (colour and monochrome) and inter-club competitions with other clubs in the area.

Beginners are most welcome, with no obligation to enter competitions – just come along and enjoy seeing photographs produced by others.

The club has members involved in most areas and levels of photography, and the more experienced members are always happy to ‘have a chat’, and offer advice to those with less experience.

Visitors are welcome and can make up to three visits before deciding on joining.


Meeting are held every fortnight from the start of our season in September through to April/May on a Thursday evening in the Methodist Church and School Room in Halstead and once a month (usually the first Monday) in Colne Engaine at the Five Bells public house. (see programme for full details and Contact us for maps to each location)

Meetings start at 7.15 pm for 7.30 pm and finish at approximately 10.00 pm.
