In line with current recommendations we are not currently holding any face-to-face meetings, but instead we are are running them online. Whilst not ideal, it has enabled us all to keep in contact, run competitions and invite speakers so that we do not shut down completely.

We are hoping to be back to some sort of normality before the start of the new season in September, but in the meantime we will continue to run virtual events until we can meet up properly.

For anyone thinking of joining the club, you would be most welcome to participate; please contact us via the Apply to join page or send an email.

Welcome to Watford Camera Club

We are a dynamic, diverse group of fun-loving photographers of all ages and abilities, ranging from 15 years of age to over 70, and all of us have a ‘young at heart’ attitude. The main aim of our club is to enable everyone to enhance their knowledge and skills and to enjoy everybody’s company. To this end we hold regular workshops, events out and competitions but always with an emphasis on enjoyment. In other words, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We run monthly internal competitions, which is a great way for members to experiment with new genres and styles and are always a lot of fun. In addition, we enter external competitions and have achieved considerable success over the last couple of years. For those who prefer not to enter competitions then we run a Free Group, where advanced members will offer their critique of images and suggest how they might be improved. We always reconvene at the pub after our Thursday meeting for those that are interested (it’s not compulsory) but expect plenty of good-natured banter amongst the group!

Members visit Sony World Photography Exhibition

We have an active social and events calendar and regularly arrange trips out, such as Bushy Park in Richmond for the annual stag rut, Silverstone race track, zoos and wildlife parks. With London on our doorstep we frequently travel into the capital to see exhibitions, followed up by an evening of street or architectural photography.

If you would like to join us, whether you are a seasoned professional or a complete beginner, then you will receive a warm welcome.
