Welcome to Bridport Camera Club

We meet roughly every other Wednesday between September and May each year at the Bridport Town Hall and sometimes on-line using Zoom. For details, see the Programme.

A meeting is either:

  * a presentation by an experienced photographer

  * a competition, usually judged by an experienced judge

  * a skills workshop. Some workshops are included in the membership fees, some others have an additional fee to cover costs

The club organises regular field trips throughout the year as well as members getting together to go out and about.

We are an inclusive club for anyone with an interest in photography. Our members cover all abilities, we have amateurs, hobbyists and professionals among our number. We have members using all kinds of equipment from compacts to film, from bridge cameras to the latest thing. A number of members are using mobile phones to great effect. The "best" camera is the one that is to hand when you want to make a picture.

The one thing we do all have in common is a passion for photography. We like to learn, and we're happy to share the things we know. Why not come along? Visitors and guests are always welcome - there is a small fee on the door for non-members (see the Programme for details).

The club was founded in 1994 at the Burton Bradstock Hotel by the then proprietor David Barnikel.

The Club's Facebook Page has all manner of things from local events to point your cameras at, to exhibitions, tips and tricks and really, just anything that comes our way. It's also a good place to join in with members sharing the things they've seen through the viewfinder. Some members put images on Instagram with the tag #bridportcameraclub.


The club runs entirely on a volunteer basis and relies on the support of all members to run club nights and other events.

There are a few officers who are elected by the members:
