Come and join us

The Buckingham Camera Club was formed in 1979 out of a desire to promote photography in the Buckingham and Winslow areas.

The club now numbers more than 40 photographers with many and varied specialities:
Aviation, natural history, digital imaging, ink jet printing, special effects, table-top, portrait, landscape, still-life, figure studies, candid and abstract – you name it and we have a member involved in it!

The Club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the Chilterns Association of Camera Clubs (CACC). This gives us access to speakers and judges from a wide geographical area and enables us to participate in competitions in which we often score highly.

The programme is roughly divided into five types of evening:
Competition nights, when members submit their current work to a competent and independent judge and are awarded marks which accumulate to the Photographer of the Year competition.

Practical evenings, when we photograph a subject or a special effect. (There are SOME clubs where you never see a camera!!)

Casual evenings, when we just meet and discuss our latest projects and share our skills with our fellow photographers. These are ideal for the beginner or the new member.

Speakers. We invite an expert to give an illustrated lecture on a specialist subject.

Social event: Several times in the year we are able to get together with a Christmas party, a Barbeque, Garden Party or an informal supper.

Guests welcome.

In addition there are occasional weekend workshops, Sunday trips and extra evenings in the week to visit other clubs.

There is we think, a well balanced programme for everyone’s interest be it monochrome, colour print, projected colour, audio visual or digital manipulation.

Membership of the club is currently £40 per year (£55 for couples) and entitles you to attend each of the weekly meetings. (works out at just 77p per week!). We have lighting equipment, a studio background, various projectors and screens, ring-flash, ColorMunki, TriggerSmart and other equipment for hire to members only.

Interested? Come and join us!  We meet most Wednesdays at 7:45 for 8 pm in the Padbury Village Hall, Main Street, Padbury, Nr. Buckingham, MK18 2AN
However we are sometimes out and about so please check out the 2017 programme to make sure we will be at home.    click here for a location map
