Welcome,

Welcome to the Orkney Camera Club website.

The club was setup in 1977, when John Cartmel Crossley an artist from St. Margaret's Hope, along with Colin Johnstone called a public meeting with the intention of getting others who were interested in photography together to form a Camera Club.  After a good turnout at the meeting a committee was formed and Orkney Camera Club began.  (To find out more of the history please see the About section.)

Since then, times and technologies have changed but the club has always had a good number of members with varying levels of experience who take their own style of photography to the club.

 

Orkney Camera Club aims to provide a mixed programme of events for the year to try and meet the needs of all levels of photographers.  Our calendar is made up of a mix of competitions, practical evenings, guest speakers and demonstrations from our members.

 

To see this year’s line-up please see our Calendar section or download our 2019/20 Programme from the Documents section.

 

Our meetings take place between September and April in the Guide Hall in Kirkwall (see Contact section for further information).

 

If you are interested in photography and are thinking to join us, we welcome new members.  Please get in touch with us for full details on joining. You can also check our Membership options.

 

(Try before you join.  If you are still not sure about joining, come past for one or two meetings and just pay £1 for the refreshments before deciding)

 

While you are here why not have a look around our site to find further information or see the photos our members have been taking.
