Welcome to Carnkie Camera Club


Carnkie Camera Club is a lively fun club and we extend a warm welcome to anyone interested in photography, regardless of skills, ability or equipment.


We aim to provide a friendly and relaxed place where like-minded people can meet and develop their interest in photography.


We meet each Wednesday in the Carnkie Institute, Carnkie village, near Redruth, under the shadow of Carn Brea at 7:00pm all year round. There is no obligation to attend every week! Meetings are largely informal with everyone encouraged to participate.


For the comfort of members and to comply with insurance and health and safety legislation Carnkie Camera Club limits the number of members to 45. We are currently approaching this limit. Once the limit is reached, anyone else applying for membership will be placed on a waiting list.


There is an annual membership fee of £5 and a small fee of £3.00 per meeting (£2.00 for each member of the same family) is made to cover running costs, refreshments and venue hire. We hope that Carnkie Camera Club is a little different to other clubs - the emphasis is fun, sharing and enjoying photography.


Some meetings will include hands-on practical sessions, so bring your camera. In the summer months we aim to get out-and-about and organise local visits to actually take photos every other week or so.


The Club has a growing stock of small accessories such as filters, extension tubes and tripods which all members are able to borrow free of charge.


Whether you live in Cornwall or further afield, we hope you find this web site useful and informative
