Inspiration and motivation
Being part of Mid Somerset Camera Club can provide inspiration and motivation for you to continue exploring and experimenting with photography. Seeing the work of other members can also inspire you to try new techniques and approaches.
Critique and feedback
As well as organising photography critique events, the Club holds competitions where members can receive constructive feedback on their images, helping them to improve their skills and develop their own unique style.
Joining the Club is a great way to meet other photographers who share your passion for photography. This can lead to new friendships, collaborations and opportunities to share ideas and techniques.
Affiliation to the WCPF connects us with clubs and photographers in a much wider area, and means that we can attend regional events and meet other photographers, see examples of some really inspiring photography and learn from them too.
Outings and group events
The Club organises group outings and events, where members can practise their photography skills in different locations. These outings also provide opportunities to socialise and share photography tips with other members.
Exhibitions and competitions
The Club arranges exhibitions where members can display their images and we also enter external competitions where members can receive recognition for their work.
The Victoria Club, on Leigh Road in Street, is a short walk from the town centre and provides a warm and spacious environment for the Club’s weekly meetings. It offers ample well-lit parking and has a licenced bar where members can enjoy a refreshment during the meeting break.
The meeting room and all facilities are on the ground floor with step-free access.
Access to equipment
The Club has equipment that members can borrow, such as lighting equipment, screen calibration tools and more. This can be a cost-effective way to try out new equipment.
The Club has a range of Mid Somerset Camera Club merchandise available for members to purchase. Please visit our online shop to see the range of products on offer and to place an order.
Overall, joining Mid Somerset Camera Club can be an excellent way to improve your photography skills, connect with like-minded individuals and gain exposure for your work.
