Welcome to Oakley Camera Club
The fact that you are reading this suggests that you have an interest in photography, so we ask you, what do you want from your photography? The answer is varied, from simple memories and records of time and place, to a far more reaching glamorous and competitive status. Whether you have a simple 'point and shoot' or a full 'digital SLR', it's your images, and what you do with them that is the key to photography.
Here at Oakley Camera Club we cater for all kinds of photographer's needs. From beginners who just want to know how their cameras work, and what can be done with them, to others, who have a much deeper understanding of their hardware, but want to get involved in the more artistic and defining aspects, of competitive digital imaging.
Tutorial and Training Evenings
Oakley Camera Club is a small, friendly and inclusive group (just how we like it), comprising people from a range of age groups and abilities in the world of photography. Their experience ranges from technical knowledge of cameras, editing suites and presentational techniques, to regular competition and professional activities. In other words, whatever level you want to achieve, we have someone willing and able to share their knowledge and experience. Part of our weekly programme is dedicated to tutoring, with events like Critique Nights, Post Processing and Lectures.
Competition and Lectures
As a member of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation and the Photographic Society of America the club holds regular Internal and Inter Club competitions, in both Print and Projected Digital formats. We also have visiting lecturers and guest speakers show off their own unique photographic expertise.
