Chelmsford Camera Club
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.
Speakers / Competitions
We provide a first class, entertaining and informative programme of high quality speakers on all aspects of photography.
Competitions are held throughout the season. We hold league competitions for Prints and Projected Digital Images (PDI). There is also the annual Burley Cup for a Panel of 3 Prints, also the Cyril Chorley Memorial Trophy for a panel of 6 Prints. We also have a Themed competition for prints and also for PDI. Finally we hold an annual Audio Visual (AV) competition.
Joe last visited Chelmsford in 2012. He now works with digital equipment, and this has brought a quiet revolution in approach which has affected his photography in important and subtle ways.
So much has changed, and Joe will tackle the topics that have become pre-eminent for him in photography, landscape and nature since then.
In the last ten years he has had opportunities to work in the polar regions, in the United States, Antipodes, India and Iceland. But by far the majority of his professional and personal work is made in the UK, especially since March 2020.
