We are a friendly, lively, accessible club just off the M65 in the borough of Pendle in East Lancashire in the North West of England. Many of our members achieve a high standard of photography, which inspires other members to improve their skills.
We usually meet on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm at Walton Lane Community Centre, Leeds Road, Nelson, BB9 8RW (see map below) During the summer we have day outings on Tuesdays to places of photographic interest instead of having an evening meeting.
We have regular presentations from visiting speakers, club competitions, which are assessed by an external judge, an annual exhibition and we continually strive to develop members' interests and skills in photography.
Please see the Club Diary for details of future meetings
All are welcome, from beginners to experienced photographers. Come and join us! You don't have to become a member;you can come as a visitor each week, or just occasionally, if you prefer.
If you want to understand your camera's functions better, you are welcome to come to the club and discuss any problems. Help is always available on club nights.
Membership £15 per year Door admission fee £2.00 members £2.50 visitors Price includes refreshments, served at the end of the evening.
