St.Ives Camera Club, Cornwall, bids you a very warm Welcome.

St.Ives has had a long and famous tradition in the fine arts, literature, crafts and traditional pottery. The camera club has been around for some time but is certainly the newcomer to the artistic traditions of the town. As such we feel a special responsibility to keep up that traditional standard in the "new" art form.

With that particularly in mind we are always very keen to welcome new members. Whether you are an absolute beginner, intermediate or experienced photographer, you can be sure to receive a very warm welcome to our club.

No matter what your particular interest or favourite photographic topic, you will be sure to find others here with the same interests. As a beginner you might like to participate in our club mentoring scheme and get individual help from someone who already has experience. You may have a new camera and are looking to improve on your first efforts. Not sure about the computer side of digital photography? We surely have folks who can help you get going or improve on that too.

More experienced photographers will certainly find a kindred spirit among our diverse membership, as we have some really excellent photographers in our ranks. Many of whom regularly excel in international competitions and salons. Check out the competition menu to see some of our members entries, or the member galleries to see all their recently entered work.

As well as running various club competitions for shields and trophies, we also have practical evenings and guest speakers who generously pass on their knowledge and skills. A number of inter-club competitions are fixtures in the programme where we compete with other local camera clubs from around West Cornwall.

Like many clubs, our weekly club meetings run from early autumn through to late spring. Other more casual events like field trips, take place in the summer months for those who wish to take part.

WE MEET EVERY OTHER MONDAY AT 7.30PM DURING OUR CLUB SEASON.

JUST CHECK OUT THE "PROGRAMME" MENU ENTRY FOR OUR DATES. THEN GO TO THE "ABOUT US" MENU TO CONTACT US OR FOR DIRECTIONS TO THE CLUB VENUE.

We look forward to greeting you when you come to "look us over". If you then decide to join us you are sure to make a whole lot of new friends ... and have fun making pictures too. Please contact us by email at the link that appears at the foot of every page if you want any further information...... or just a chat.
