For Photographers in and around Wakefield!

The Dark Hatter by Paul Wagstaff

Welcome to the Wakefield Camera Club website. We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of photographers who are more than willing to pass on our knowledge and experience to others. Each year we put together a programme of events which we feel will appeal to all our members, and covers subjects including landscape, natural history, portrait, architecture, street and creative photography. Whether you use a mobile phone or the latest digital camera, if you are looking to further your interest in photography and improve your skills, I am sure you will enjoy membership of our club.

We meet every Monday evening (excluding bank holidays and a summer break) at the Brookhouse Club on Barnsley Road, opposite the Aagrah Restaurant. Our meetings start at 7.30 pm and normally finish around 9.30 to 10pm. Occasionally we might take a Monday night trip out, so please check our Forthcoming Events calendar before you drop in.

If you need any more information about our club please do not hesitate to contact one of our committee members through our ‘Contacts’ page.

We hope then, that you will join us at our next meeting. Everyone is very welcome, including young members. Your first three meetings will be free!
