Thinking of joining the Dawlish & Teignmouth Camera Club?
Welcome! We are pleased that you are thinking of joining. Here is some information to help you make your decision.
(If you have joined us already, there is a lot of useful advice on our Information for Members page)
Currently, due to the ongoing Covid situation, we are holding our sessions via Zoom, but we are hopeful that this will be a brief, temporary measure. The weekly Zoom sessions will continue until we are able to resume our meetings which we ordinarily hold on Wednesday evenings at Holcombe Village Hall, from September to May.
Do I need to be of any particular skill level to join?
For us it doesn’t matter. We have members of all ages, with all abilities and all types of cameras, from highly proficient camera users to those who snap on their phones. As long as you enjoy, or are interested in photography, you will be very welcome.
What can I expect from being a member of the club?
We meet on Wednesday evenings at Holcombe Village Hall from September to May and offer a full programme (see the calendar), including:
Regular well-known professional, sometimes local, and occasionally international photographers, covering a range of genres and techniques
Up to 4 opportunities a year to enter club competitions and to have your images selected to represent our club at regional competitions
Club social outings to a variety of local places of photographic interest
We run occasional fun competitions and challenges on our website. See the galleries.
Opportunities to ask questions or seek advice from other members, and sharing of skills and expertise.
Local and online photographic exhibitions
Please note: We are not currently able to meet up in person because of Covid guidelines, but we are still able to provide a full programme as detailed above through weekly online sessions using Zoom.
Try it out
There is no pressure to join and you can come along to 3 evenings for free to see if it’s for you, or not.
Can I just turn up?
If you would like to come along, just send us a message using our Contact form in advance so that we know you’re coming and one of our committee members will meet you when you arrive to show you around and introduce you to the club.
Feel free to get in touch via our Contact form.
We look forward to seeing you!
