Hadleigh Camera Club

SLR CameraDo you want to improve your photographic skills in a friendly community environment? Then you’ve come to the right place. 'It’s the friendliest club I have been to' and 'Hadleigh Camera Club has Compact Camerahelped me become a better photographer' are typical of the comments made. Club members range from complete novices to former professional photographers.

There’s no equipment snobbery either so whatever camera you use, whatever level of expertise you have, you’ll be sure of a welcome.

 

Membership

Membership is open to all members of the community; you do not need to be associated with The Salvation Army or any other photographic club or society to join. 

There is a small annual membership fee (which may be paid in two instalments), with reductions for members of the same family.  There is no additional fee for attending normal, regular meetings where tea and coffee is provided at no extra cost. 

Visitors are welcome and are asked for a nominal fee to attend. This fee is refundable on joining the club.

A bona-fide photographic society affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies.

 

Competitions

Internal Print competitions normally take place four times a year where members may submit two of their photographs. An experienced judge from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain comes to view and critique each picture. Members report that comments from judges are always helpful at improving their photography skills.  Marks awarded by the judge are used to calculate a “Print Photographer of the Year” Award where a cup presented to the club by Robin Bryant is held for one year.


We also have a digital on-line competition held each month with set subjects.  Instead of printing out and mounting entries the images are simply uploaded through the club website.  Entries are judged, normally by a PAGB approved judge, with marks counting towards a “Digital Photographer of the Year” Award where a shield presented by John Smith is held by the winner for one year.
