Welcome to the world of photographic adventure at the Kempston Studio!
About the Club
Who we are
Kempston Camera Club is a photographic society for keen hobbyist photographers, whether beginners, advanced or somewhere in-between. The club has had a presence in the town of Kempston since 1970, originally meeting at the local church hall and latterly at the Kempston Studio. We are privileged to carry on the work of those who originally set it up. The gear may have changed from film and manual settings to high-speed digital cameras, but the challenges of good composition, accurate exposure and general cameracraft remain the same.
We are a small club with perhaps a dozen members attending week by week, small enough for everyone to feel part of what is going on and large enough for a wide range of experience to be available, and all within a well-equipped photography studio, ideal for all our needs. It’s a friendly group where you can have fun and flourish.
What we do
As a club we aim to enjoy being creative with our photography and to encourage one another to enhance old skills and learn new ones. We have regular competitions, workshops run by club members, photo walks, visiting speakers and studio sessions, not to mention help with processing software like Lightroom and Photoshop. And what we don’t yet do we are open to including!
You are very welcome to visit us on the first or third Wednesday of any month at 8pm (check the link above to the current programme of activities to see what we are doing on a given night). We ask for a £5 donation from everyone for each meeting, but you get your first visit free. After two or three visits we shall ask you join the membership if you wish to continue coming, and this entitles you to come along to the studio photography sessions at the end of each month. A year’s membership costs £35.
