Club Ethos


Our aim is to have fun with photography. We have a range of members in terms of age and ability and we welcome newcomers at any time.

Visitors


For the 2021-22 season we are holding our meetings on Zoom. 
As with our in-person meetings, visitors are welcome.  You might like to join us for a night to decide if you’d like to join the club, or you might wish to join us for a meeting where we have a special speaker from outside the club. 

September meetings are free of charge
October onward meetings with external speakers will incur £5 charge 

Please check our programme for details of upcoming speakers and to buy tickets.
Any problems with tickets or if you'd like to join us, please contact our Club Secretary for details.

Please note that if you then decide to become a full member of the club for the 2021-22 season, a proportion of this £5 will be taken off the price of your membership for the year.

The Club

 

Founded in April 1961, Kidlington Camera Club currently has over 40 members with a wide range of ages, backgrounds and interests. We aim to encourage involvement and enjoyment of all forms of still photography in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and are always pleased to welcome visitors and new members. 


Cameras and Media

Members use wide variety of equipment and media, including mobile phones and tablets, and all are welcome.

Digital images for projection (PDI) have the attraction of being considerably cheaper to produce than prints, but it is hoped that plenty of prints will be forthcoming to ensure a good supply of material for our exhibitions. Whether you print at home or use a commercial processor, it makes no difference how your photographs are produced as all methods are valid as long as the resulting image is your own work.
