Welcome to Cheltenham Camera Club

Welcome to Cheltenham Camera Club, the largest photo club in Gloucestershire. We’re a friendly, welcoming bunch with members ranging from international award-winners to novices. Our aim is simple: To help you enjoy photography and take better pictures. Whatever your standard, we’ll make you welcome, so feel free to drop in and give us a try.

Our programme is hugely varied. It includes regular Thursday evening meetings from September to May, monthly technique sessions, friendly critique groups, studio shoots and trips to local, national and international venues. During the summer we organise a range of outings combining sociability and photography.

We’ve been going since 1865, and we’re renowned for our annual international salon and exhibition, as well as our sponsorship of the Gloucestershire Young Photographer competition, encouraging the next generation of photographers.

Please take a look at our current programme and meeting details, and don't forget our Cheltenham International Salon of Photography which opens on 1st January 2024.

I look forward to meeting you!
