Covid-19 Update
It has been decided that due to the present situation, meetings of the club will take place on-line, most probably for the complete 2020/2021 season. i.e. up to the AGM.
However, this will be kept under constant review and hopefully we will be in a position to meet ‘in the flesh’ in the not too distant future.
The 2020/21 programme has therefore had to be amended slightly to be compatible with the new method of delivery.

It all started back in 1902 when the first Bideford Camera Club was formed and although we have come a long way the principles of photography remain exactly the same.

We love to meet anyone at any stage of your photography – whether it’s just learning to use a smartphone or getting to grips with a mirrorless or DSLR camera, we have a variety of members able to help you get more out of your images.

Some of our more advanced members regularly submit their images to external competitions and the club is fully affiliated to The Western Countries Photographic Federation.
