Bringing photography to life

Stacks Image 55

The Baddow Camera Club provides a friendly environment in which to improve your photography. Our members are a mixture of seasoned amateurs and people of all ages new to the world of photography. We are a member of the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies (EAF) and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).

We hold practical sessions throughout the local Essex area along with competitions, talks, and training each week in the Reading Rooms, Great Baddow (Bell Street, CM2 7JR), unless otherwise stated in the programme. All the latest information on club activities can be found by clicking here, along with summaries of events here.
