About Us

Welcome to the website of the North West Bristol Camera Club.

The club was formed in 1979 by a group of people who met at an evening class on photography at Twyford House, Shirehampton. Its aims are to help promote photography in the North West Bristol area.

We are a relatively small club with some 25-30 members. We hope you will find us a friendly bunch of people always ready to welcome visitors and/or new members.

We have a varied programme of external speakers, competitions, and practical evenings. In addition we organise photographic outings to local places of interest.

We have links with, and have carried out work with or on behalf of a number of local organisations including Bristol Zoo, the Bristol Industrial Museum, Bristol Natural History Consortium, the Downs Wildlife Trust and others. Members' work has been published in the local press and on the national BBC website. See Community Engagement for more.

We meet on Wednesdays throughout the year, with the exception of July and August, at Westbury Fields on the outskirts of Westbury On Trym.

New members are always welcome, there is no need to make any special arrangements, if you would like to sample a typical evening or chat to some of our members then just come along on a Wednesday. See the Find Us page for more information about the club location and membership.
