The Camera Club, held in the Town Hall

The Camera Club was founded in 1987 and today there are over 50 members of whom a significant number are ladies. The members meet every Thursday and an average meeting usually sees twenty to thirty members attending, whose ages range from the mid twenties through to retirement and beyond.It is a very friendly club with a wide range of skill levels and, as you would expect, many different individual member interests in the things that they choose to photograph. Subjects chosen for special attention include butterflies and moths, flowers, wild birds, locomotives, aeroplanes, landscape and portraiture to note just a few.
The enjoyment of photography brings us together, and by seeing a variety of work, we learn from each other. Some of the evenings are mainly instructional, with guest speakers or members teaching other members about their camera’s, critiquing photographs or learning various techniques in Photoshop.
Several times during the year we visit other local photography clubs for competitions and they in turn are invited to Hungerford.

The highlight of the club year is the annual exhibition, which traditionally takes place in the Hungerford Corn Exchange during October. This weekend event sees approximately 300 exhibition prints displayed. A judge is booked and cups and shields awarded.
The club is a member of the Southern Photographic Federation and in 2011 joined the league to contest images with other local camera clubs. Hungerford Camera Club have proved to be quite successful in the league having been promoted to the next division in the past 2 seasons.
The club is an integral part of the Hungerford community and we are regularly asked to provide photographs and images for many local organisations
