Cranleigh Camera Club was established in the 1960s and currently has around forty members of various ages and photographic abilities. We have a variety of internal club competitions, talks by members and guest speakers on many varied subjects, workshops designed to improve our chances of good competition scores, trips away both to take pictures and to compete against other clubs, Christmas social evening, and an Annual Exhibition held in the Cranleigh village hall.
Although digital photographers now outnumber film photographers, all are very welcome and no distinction is made between film and digital prints for the purpose of workshops and competitions. Anyone interested in joining the Club need not feel that meetings would be too technical and we invite you to attend a couple of meetings to see if you like us - we never ask people to join the club immediately. Young people are also very welcome to join the Club and take part in its activities (see our Child Protection Policy).
The Club meets most Thursdays (September to June) at the Baptist Church Hall, 262 The High Street, Cranleigh, GU6 8RT. The church is located at the western end of the village, near the Cranley Hotel and Jewson's. There is no parking outside the church but ample parking is available in the Sainsbury's car park. Park at the far end and the pedestrian exit will bring you out behind the church where the entrance to the small hall is located (see the location map in 'How to find us').
Please note that club meetings are currently held in the main church hall to enable social distancing during Covid and the entrance is via the main door on the High Street.
Meetings open at 7:30pm for 8:00pm start and consist of talks, demonstrations, competitions and practical sessions.
