Thinking of Joining

Beeston Camera Club  is a member of the North & East Midlands Photographic Federation (N&EMPF) and affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB), a registered charity. If you are interested in joining our club, we would be delighted to give you a warm welcome. First of all come along and give us a try on a Thursday evening at the old Beeston Town Hall (now the Redeemer Church).  You may visit at a cost of £3 per visit before you make up your mind if you would like to join. If you decide to go ahead  any visitor fees can be used against your full membership fee. We will provide you with an application form and a programme for the year. To contact us  ……. click here

After you join it’s up to you how often you come, though we do advise coming regularly to get the maximum benefit from your membership. Membership costs £65 a year. The Club is for everyone, from the complete beginner to the professional photographer. We have a weekly programme with a wide diversity of excellent speakers, covering an extensive range of photographic interests from landscape, nature, and portraits, through to sports photography and travel. We also hold monthly competitions for members, usually with both a “Theme” and “Open” competition. A typical Thursday evening will last just over two hours with a break in the middle, during which time members will usually chat in the bar. We are a friendly club, and the more experienced members are always happy to advise those with less experience; in addition to which we often hold workshops on various more technical aspects of photography. 

As a member you can:

  • Attend the events in our full and varied regular Thursday programme, which includes illustrated talks by leading photographers, exhibitions, competitions and lots of opportunity to share and learn.
  • Learn from experienced members on various subjects such as landscape, portraiture, natural history, sport etc.
  • Take part in the popular Club monthly and annual digital and print competitions.
  • Showcase a selection of your photographs on the Club website, exhibitions and events.
