Welcome to Shaftesbury’s friendly club for everyone with an interest in photography and cameras.

We meet twice a month during the winter season (Sept to May) at the Royal British Legion Hall in Coppice Street and prospective new members are very welcome.  Please register your interest by emailing us so we can keep you up to date with our news and activities.

Our programme includes talks, practical hands-on sessions, plus a few friendly internal and inter-club competitions.  We include projected digital images (so you don’t have to worry about printing or mounting your shots) as well as the more traditional conventional mounted prints.

We have additional workshops to help with managing and editing your photos, and preparing them to share with us or your friends, or for competitions.   All  to help us learn more about the art and latest technology of making better photographs  –  it doesn’t matter whether you use a small compact camera or a big single lens reflex, and we’re seeing more and more images taken with a smartphone!

We are open to all, so do please contact us.  You are welcome to come and visit us free for two  meetings before deciding  to join as a regular member, or come just as a visitor for a nominal fee of £3.  Our subscription is just £30 per person for a full season but you can join at any time.
