Welcome to the Doncaster Camera Club website, where you will find all the information about our club.
It has been a strange past two seasons, with Covid 19 putting a stop to ‘in person’ meetings.
Like many organisations we have used the Zoom platform to keep members in contact with each other and to allow the club to function. My predecessor Keith Wilson deserves our thanks for his efforts in leading us during this difficult time.
As I write this welcome, I realise sadly that we are still not at the end of this pandemic, however it is of paramount importance that we resume some meetings at our club room. Therefore, we have decided that this season we will trial a full programme of events with alternate meetings at Armthorpe Road, and via Zoom. The latter gives us the opportunity to bring first class speakers for you to see from the comfort of your own home, whilst in person meetings mean we can at last meet face to face to look at, talk about, and enjoy our photography.
To steal a sentence from last year’s introduction, ‘We pride ourselves on being an inclusive organisation and our members range from absolute beginners to national and international award winners’.
Doncaster Camera Club has always been at the forefront of Yorkshire photography and the club has on many occasions represented the Yorkshire Photographic Union in national club competitions.

Whilst we are not a teaching organisation, membership puts you constantly in touch with friendly and experienced photographers who are more than willing to pass on advice gained from years of experience. As a beginner, these members almost certainly made the mistakes that you will, and their words of advice will help dodge some of the pitfalls. You will also be able to hear talks on photo-editing techniques using both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop
We have put together a programme which we feel will appeal to all, with speakers discussing various genres of photography, from Nature, Landscape, Portrait through to modern Creative techniques.
From your mobile phone, through to the latest digital cameras, if you are looking to expand your interest in photography, then I am sure you will enjoy membership of Doncaster Camera Club.
I can assure you that you will be made most welcome.
