About Us

About the club
Swavesey Camera Club is based in the village of Swavesey, just outside Cambridge. At Swavesey Camera Club we are proud to cater for photographers of all standards. Whether yours is a basic compact camera or the latest digital SLR, our programme is designed to help you get the best out of it.

Some of our meetings are instructional and some are meant to inspire with the opportunity to listen to and meet accomplished local and national photographers and to look at some great images.

One way we share our own work with other members is via our programme of competitions, where independent judges provide a useful and always constructive commentary on the pictures entered.

We also have a public exhibition in Spring each year, when all members are invited to contribute their work.

Another feature of our programme is a series of informal outings. The venues have been selected to offer lots of photo-opportunities. They will also give less-experienced members the chance to be mentored as they take their pictures to help them develop their style and skills.

With social events like our annual dinner and the summer barbecue to complete our programme, we are delighted to invite you to join us.

Come along and try us out!
