About Us

Ivybridge & District Camera Club was formed in 1982 as a place for people interested in photography to meet and discuss their interest. Since then it has developed into a friendly and social photographic club.

Our meeting place is Bittaford Village Hall which is wheelchair friendly and has reserved disabled parking.

Our current members vary widely in age, ability and experience. Interests cover most photographic genre including Landscape, Portraiture, Sport and Street photography. Whether we use a mobile phone, tablet or a state of the art DSLR Camera, we are all enthusiasts striving to improve our skill set or just enjoy meeting and chatting with like-minded people.

We hold regular competitions within the Club and also against others. We hold an annual exhibition in South Brent and a bi-annual one at the Watermark in Ivybridge.

We can be contacted by using the "Contact Us" section on this web-site.


THE LEARNING ZONE

Several Special Interest Groups are being formed to help with the varied interests of members, a result of feedback we’ve received this summer. Please join in to help either with your expertise - or giving feedback, to help us to know what your needs are?

Groups will be flexible to match members interests, those proposed are:-

Capture to Creation: First Steps - is intended to help, not only with taking photographs, but with processing them for best results.

Camera Skills - how to get the best result straight from your camera.

Audio Visual - for those members wishing to create “stories” from all the images taken and stored on their computer.

Mobile Phone Photography - exploring new techniques and how to get the best from your phone.

They will be driven by members, with regular challenges offered to practice ideas - aided with links to tutorials where more help would be available. To begin with, this may seem a little basic, as assessment is needed to understand levels of knowledge - or where more help is wanted. As the groups gain in confidence, it is hoped a “stepping stones” progression will evolve to enable more innovative techniques, hardware and software to be explored.

The emphasis will be strictly non-competitive. “Mistakes” or “difficulties” will positively be welcomed, as this is probably the best way to learn!

Let the fun begin!
