Shaftesbury Camera Club is always pleased to welcome new members so if you might be interested in joining, please take a look at our Programme Page where you can view or download a pdf copy. We normally meet on two (sometimes three) Thursday evenings a month starting at 7:30 pm until around 10pm.
This year, we are trialing a new format for our series of internal Shuffell Trophy competitions for PDIs and Prints so we will be giving all members, old and new, plenty of help and support to encourage members to enter either Prints, Projected Digital Images, or both. In addition to our published programme, we also offer additional workshop sessions covering a range of topics including preparing and entering competitions. But we are not limited to competitions – every season we have a variety of external speakers, mainly professional photographers but we also have members evenings when one or two members may present an aspect of their interest. We’re always looking for new ideas and suggestions.
Membership costs just £35 per year per person. If you wish to come as a prospective member, simply contact us by phone or email and you will then be welcome to come to two meetings free of charge before deciding to join. You must be a full member to participate in any competition. Our present membership is around forty of all ages, beginners to professional, and some just come for the comradeship, interesting talks and competitions, and to learn a bit more about our hobby.
If you’ve seen our poster while walking in Tesco’s car park, do please note they have a time limit of 2 hours which is not normally enough for our evenings so we suggest parking either in Coppice Street or the public car park off Coppice Street. The pedestrian entrance to the RBL Hall is via the Football Club car park and the large metal gates into the Hall.
