Welcome to Bedford Camera Club

I would like to welcome you to the 111th season of the premier photographic club in Bedfordshire, The Bedford Camera Club.  Our members are all keen amateur photographers and we welcome new members to our ranks.  We have, over the course of our winter season, well known lecturers talk to us about all aspects of photography, and we all learn so much from these experts.  We also have a number of internal competitions which, if you're good enough, can win you one of the coveted cups at the end of the season!
In addition to this we have external competitions where we pit our skills against other clubs in the East Anglia region.  This season will be exceptionally good as we have booked some brilliant speakers and the members evenings look to be very helpful to all members.  I hope that you all have an enjoyable time this coming 2016/17 season and I look forward to greeting both old and new members.
Cliff Harvey, Club President
