Welcome to our club!

Welcome to Swavesey Camera Club!

As the President of the club I am delighted to introduce a full programme of talks, workshops, competitions and outings that offers a greater range of activities than almost any other club in the region.

We are always keen to encourage new members to join, and pride ourselves on being a very friendly, welcoming club with activities to suit all abilities. This includes support for less experienced people wanting to improve their camera skills, through to talks and competitions to challenge even the most established photographer.

Our programme of events is based around five main elements:

  • Talks from some hugely impressive amateur and professional photographers who will share their experiences with us
  • Workshops where our more established members share their expertise for the benefit of our improving members
  • Internal competitions, where we share our images under the critical eye of a neutral judge
  • External competitions, where we participate both as individuals and in matches against other clubs
  • Club outings, with a number of venues selected to provide photographic opportunities and challenges.

We strive to be an inclusive club, catering for all, from absolute beginners to advanced workers. I can certainly vouch for this since joining the club a few years ago, and whilst my photography still needs major improvement, the advice, support and inspiration I've received from the club cannot have been bettered.

At the heart of the club is an overall spirit of friendliness and fun, and I hope this helps you to enjoy your photography even more this year.

    With the college closed, we shall visit our local historic city, which offers plenty of opportunities for photographing the city streets, before gathering in a local hostelry to compare notes at the end of the evening.

    An Evening Of Prize-Winning AV Sequences

    Keith Leedham FRPS EFIAP FIPF came to Swavesey in 2015 to judge the inter-club Felicity Bickley Trophy for Audio Visual Presentations. During the evening he showed us one of his own AV sequences, and we thought it would be a good idea to invite him for an evening to show us more of his work.
