Antrim Camera Club was founded in 1984 and once again commences a new season in Parkhall College, 12 Steeple Road, Antrim BT41 1AF on Wednesday 07 September 2016. The club will meet weekly each Wednesday night at 730pm during the school year until May 2017. We are a friendly club and we have a wide range of members of all photographic abilities and interests. Over the past few seasons the club has continued to experience a growing membership.
Enthusiasm for photography is the only requirement you need for membership. You don’t even have to own a camera (but it helps)!
There are many opportunities to improve your skills and knowledge through practical sessions, lectures competitions and outings. A varied programme of events is planned for the season.
One third of the membership is female these days. We always welcome new members and you will be welcome whether you are an experienced photographer or a raw beginner.
The club programme for the coming season will offer you lots of learning opportunities and the chance to show and discuss your images.
The club is affiliated to Northern Ireland Photographic Association (NIPA) and the East Antrim Photographic Union (EAPU).
It has previously exhibited the work of members in Clotworthy House Exhibition Centre, Antrim New Library, Greystone Library, the Castle Mall, Greenmount College and just recently at Antrim Agricultural Show.
Membership fee is £30 per year with a concession fee of £20 for OAPs, Unemployed and Juniors.
