Welcome to Wakefield Camera Club on the web. We are a long-established, thriving and friendly club meeting most weeks. Meetings are always open to non-members so if you’re interested in photography why not come along. Details of the next meeting are below.

Our next meeting is Monday 28th July – Cold Blooded Encounters + Informal A4 and Digital Competition. It’s a packed night planned for this meeting. To start with we have booked the small meeting room and Adrian will be showing his tarantulas, millipedes, lizards and snakes so that we can have the opportunity of photographing and encountering such wonderful creatures! It’s not everyday that we get the opportunity to get our lenses “up close and personal” with these cold-blooded creatures so don’t forget to bring you kit along and get some unique shots. We will be operating our normal numbered “queuing” system so that everyone should have time to get their best shots.
At the same time, in the large meeting room we will have the informal A4 print and digital image competition. This is for those members who haven’t yet been place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a Clubman or other formal competition, and is ideal starting point, as it gives an opportunity to bring an A4 print (or smaller) to the club so that all members present can rank it against those of other “novices”, discuss their opinions on the technical and artistic factors WITHOUT there being any real pressure to perform against those who are more expert or competent in their photography. We are also aiming to input your digital images for viewing on the laptop computer, so bring along one or two unmounted prints – and a couple of digital images if you wish – to test yourself in a fun and informal way against fellow novice members.
We meet almost every Monday evening from 7.30pm (except Bank Holidays).
