Welcome to Upminster Camera Club’s website.

Founded in 1955 our club has now been in existence for more than sixty-five years and we are proud to still have a thriving membership today.

Upminster Camera Club is a place where photographers can share their love of photography, as well as learn and share ideas.







Our extensive programme of both competition and interesting lectures help to build and encourage our members to advance their skills in all aspects of photography.

All members are encouraged to enter club competitions at a level that suits their ability, where their photographs are judged and given a critique. We have three classes, Preliminary, Intermediate and Advanced, click here to see examples.

Digital photography and digital manipulation is seen by the club as an inevitable part of our hobby and is actively encouraged.

We have regular club outings and studio evenings which help to keep us all motivated and the friendly atmosphere at our meetings will ensure that you will receive a warm welcome, so why not come along and see us on any Tuesday evening at 7.45pm for 8.00pm start.
