Nantwich Camera Club is located in the scenic South Cheshire town of Nantwich, famous for its magnificent fourteenth century Church of St. Mary (known locally as the cathedral of South Cheshire), its many pubs, and in history, Nantwich was the centre for the brine industry.
Nantwich Camera Club was founded in 1981 by the current president of the club, John Dodd Esq. The club celebrated its 21st anniversary in 2002 by holding an exhibition in the Nantwich Museum of “21 Years of Photography by Nantwich Camera Club”. To see the Photographs from the 21st anniversary exhibition follow the link on the “Gallery” page. The club is affiliated to the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) and The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB). Currently we have more than sixty members of both sexes.
New members are always welcome and are cordially invited to attend four meetings without obligation to join (subject to a small visitor’s attendance fee). Previous photographic experience is not necessary for membership. Advice can be provided relating to all aspects of photography and photographic equipment, both film based or digital.
If your photographic interests leave you with a desire to increase your knowledge or aspire to produce images of a higher standard, then the competitive environment of club competitions provide the ideal opportunity for rapid progress.
All members benefit greatly from the many visiting lecturers who freely share their individual expertise and creativity within an entertaining environment.
Details of how to find the club and times of opening may be found on the “Information” page, together with the current membership charges.
Awards for All Lottery Grants for Local Groups.
Early in 2006, the club received a substantial grant from the “Awards for All Lottery Grants for Local Groups”. The grant was made to finance additional digital equipment to enable the Club to record Events organised in and around Nantwich and to strengthen our links with the Nantwich Museum. It is also promoting and improving our members skills in the art of digital photography.
