Holmes Chapel Camera Club is all about helping you, with your photography, whether you’ve just started or have been making photographs for years.  Our members range from young to old, and photograph just about anything from macro to landscape and everything in between.

 

The club meets every other Thursday in the room at the back of the library in the centre of Holmes Chapel from 8pm to 10pm, on the dates shown on the right.

 

We offer a range of activities from lectures, demonstrations, practical evenings and talks from a variety of guest speakers.

 

Holmes Chapel Camera Club is a member of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union.  We run internal competitions throughout the season which are judged by accredited L&CPU judges, and we enter L&CPU competitions as a club and as individual members.  We are the current holders of the Robert Shaw Trophy; an annual competition between 5 local clubs.
