Welcome to the Cheltenham Camera Club. As the largest photographic club in Gloucestershire, we have a wealth of experience to support you, whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced worker.

Our Club meets on Thursday evenings, and due to the present situation will be holding meetings online by Zoom. This has provided us with an opportunity to have lecturers from further afield sharing their passions and expertise, alongside our club competitions.

We run a separate popular bite-size Focus Group meeting providing critique and training for members. The club also organises members’ outings, annual exhibition, Gloucestershire Young Photographers’ competition and Cheltenham International Salon of Photography.

If you are interested in photography then do join us at Cheltenham Camera Club.
