The club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the East Anglian Federation.

You don't have to be an 'Expert Photographer' to be welcomed as a member of Chelmsford Camera Club. All you need is an interest in photography. The Club meets weekly from September until May with a varied programme of competitions, photographic talks and demonstrations, member participation evenings and social events. We meet from September through to May.
