Clacton Camera Club is Clacton's oldest photographic club. Formed in 1939, the club continues its ethos of making friends through photography, and it is just as much a social body as a photographic one. The club welcomes anyone who has an interest in photography, whatever their skill level or medium they use, be it film or digital. We provide a friendly atmosphere on a Friday evening combining competitions with guest speakers, members' workshops, fun events and demonstrations. Many of our members are highly experienced photographers and are happy to advise and assist newcomers. Please take a moment to browse our pages and, if you would like to come along to any of our meetings, you will be most welcome.


You can now view those images that have scored 9 points or above in our Open competitions, together with those that have been placed or highly commended in our other internal competitions, eg Portrait, Natural History etc. Please note that links will only activated after the competition has taken place.

We are pleased to announce that our programme for 2020/21 is due to commence from 11 September 2020. Our weekly meetings will be held online (via Zoom) until Christmas, at which point the situation will be reviewed. 

Whilst free for members, we are making our online presentations available to non-members at a cost of £3 per event.
