Welcome to Photofold Camera Club
You do not need to be an expert photographer to be a member of Photofold, just a keen interest in photography!
People of all ages, whether they be beginner or experienced are more than welcome!
We are a friendly club and all our members have a wide range of experience in both film and digital mediums. We are extremely pleased to share the benefit of this experience with other members to help them achieve more from their photography!
As a member of the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies, we also meet with other clubs from the region in competitions, and so get to see the work that other photographers are producing.
Our photography club has an extensive programme including presentations from top class photographers covering all genres as well as club competitions throughout the season which runs from September to June.
All competitions are appraised by a judge from the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies (EAF) who will give helpful critique of each image.
We have regular club day outings, usually once a month, as well as a small number of extended 4-5 day trips to locations further afield such as the Lake District.
Come along to our club evenings and be ensured of a friendly welcome. We meet on a Tuesday evening at 20:00-22:00 in the Chantry Centre just off Billericay high street.
