Our club was established in 1902 and is one of the larger clubs within the EAF and the UK. We are a membership of around 200 enthusiastic amateur photographers. Our club is based on education and much of our activity is within our Specialist Interest Groups with Practical Workshops, Critique evenings, Technical sessions and we give help and guidance to those working towards photographic distinctions and much more. These activities are underpinned with weekly meetings of photographic talks and competitions. The season culminates in an Annual Exhibition of Prints and PDI’s, which runs for 1 week at the end of April, with awards presented by the Mayor and our sponsors, to whom we are extremely grateful.
Our Sponsors: The Cambridge Independent, Campkins Cameras, Domino, John Lewis, Olympus, Richer Sounds, Samsung, and Scotsdales. Read more about our Sponsors.
Membership: We are an energetic forward-looking club with a vibrant membership. If you would like to join us, please fill in a Membership Application.
Club Meetings Continue Online 2021/22
Despite COVID-19 restrictions the club put together a full programme of talks, tutorials, competitions and even coffee mornings for the members online. These have proven to be very successful, with good attendance and we thank all the speakers and judges who have adapted to this medium. We continue with this format until further notice, but a sub-committee is looking at how we could possibly transition back to meetings once again.
Inter-Club Digital Competition
In January, we host a digital competition among 36 East Anglian clubs. The competition normally opens in May of the previous year, although in view of the current coronavirus pandemic we have cancelled the 2021 competition. We are very much hoping that the following competition will proceed as normal, and the provisional date has been set for Saturday 15th January 2022. The Inter-Club Digital Competition Co-ordinator will contact clubs as soon as further details are known.
More information about the competition, including results from January 2020, can be found here.
