Garforth Camera Club
The club was formed in 1979, and has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. Today we have a membership of over 30 men and women of all ages.
In the early years, the wet process and slides were the norm but with the advent of the digital era our members embraced this genre with enthusiasm and we now have equipment for display, training and use by members in this medium.
Recently we were fortunate in obtaining a grant from The Coalfield Regeneration Project to purchase new studio lights. These are to be used to develop portrait photography skills not only of members but also of interested groups in the community. If you would like us to bring our lights to your meeting we would be pleased to give help with your photography.
We have a varied programe throughout the year which includes hands on sessions where newer members can gain experience from the more seasoned photographers. Competitions are held at regular intervals in which all members, regardless of skill level, are encouraged to participate.
A program of outdoor photography and social events at various locations is maintained throughout the summer months. You can see this year’s program on our website. Whatever your photographic interest, be it colour or black and white, prints or projected images, you will find like minded members willing to exchange knowledge or ideas.
New members, whatever skill level, are always welcome, so if you have a passion for photography or just want to develop your knowledge, come along to one of our meetings.
The club meets every Monday evening at 8-10pm, at the Miners Welfare Hall on Main Street, Garforth. The first 4 meetings are free, so come along and see if what we offer would suit you. See the map here
