About Ilkley Camera Club

Welcome to Ilkley Camera Club where anyone with an interest in photography can meet, share ideas and develop their interest in photography.

You do not need to be an expert to be a member – all you need is an interest in photography or photographic art.

We meet most Fridays during autumn and winter with a varied and exciting Programme to entertain, inform and educate.

The Club normally runs a substantial programme of  Outings between April and September – and sometimes in other months. These are great opportunities to meet fellow photographers out and about taking photographs.

For members who want more detailed help to improve their skills and abilities and provide inspiration then we have various Development and Mentoring activities. These can involve specific in-depth seminars or one-to-one discussion between a member and a mentor. We can also offer you a critique of your images and help you work your way towards nationally and internationally recognised photographic distinctions awarded by prestigious photographic bodies.

There is also a Flickr Group where members can show their images to others so that constructive comment and advice can be given. And we are twinned with Hobart Photographic Society in Tasmania which allows us to share images and ideas for mutual benefit.

We hold an Exhibition of members’ work about every two years.

How much you take part is entirely up to you – come along to a Meeting or get in touch.

We pride ourselves on a warm and friendly welcome for all.

Ilkley Camera Club is a great place for photographers.
