Welcome to Sedgemoor Camera Club

Focused On Learning

Whether you are an absolute beginner simply looking to get to grips with the basics, or an experienced professional wanting to expand your skill set, we at Sedgemoor Camera Club can help.
We value each and every member and look closely at what YOU want from the club.
Each year we cover the fundamentals of photography to make sure all of our members understand how to use their own camera or device. So even if you have a smart phone or tablet, we can help you to get the best out of it, and ultimately take great pictures.
With practical sessions for all levels, friendly critique evenings, professional guest speakers, social nights, local outings, fun competitions, and a packed summer programme, we at Sedgemoor Camera Club aim to give you the best and most varied experience of the world of photography.
And for those of you looking for a more advanced approach, we explore a range of technical practises from bracketing to monitor calibration, Wi-Fi tethering to Audio Visuals, and even the occasional studio setup with professional models. And if it’s post-production you’re interested in, we have the latest in photo manipulation software from Adobe, so we can introduce you to industry standard processes, and help you gain the techniques you need to make a good image look GREAT!
We at the Sedgemoor Camera Club promise to increase your knowledge-base at whatever level you find yourself. We truly have something for everyone. Come see for yourself.
