Club

Selby Camera Club was founded over 130 years ago in 1887. Initially it was known as Selby Photographic Society but, after a few years it changed its name to Selby Camera Club. The club is a member of the Yorkshire Photographic Union (a society comprising most Yorkshire camera clubs) and affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

The club currently has approximately 50 members. Membership currently costs £50 per year for a single person. Less than £1.60 per meeting; or £75 for a related partnership.  If you join part way through a programme you will be asked to pay a suitably reduced membership fee.

Club nights include guest speakers, competitions, demonstrations and members’ presentations, in addition members can attend workshops and practical outings that are arranged throughout the year. Sometimes, courses are run about popular processing software such as Lightroom and Photoshop. Details of our Thursday meetings can be found in our Programme and, if you are considering joining, you can attend 2 meetings free before deciding whether to join.

Our members vary in experience from novice through to professional standard and many of our experienced members have photographic distinctions with recognised bodies such as the Royal Photographic Society and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. We promote an atmosphere of mutual help so that we can all learn to make improvements to the images we take.
