Take a group of 120 enthusiastic amateur photographers, immerse them in an exciting interactive community project, and watch the interest in photography grow. That’s how Tenterden Camera Club got started.
The phenomenal success of the Tenterden 365 project in 2014 brought
together a core of people wanting to continue with their photographic
experience and increase their knowledge. Following a meeting in August 2015, the club was established and we have been slowly working our way forwards.
We meet fortnightly at the Zion Baptist Church in Tenterden High Street. So far, we have avoided having formal club competitions with outside judges and the overwhelming request from members was ‘to keep it friendly’.
Each month we have a project or theme as an idea or subject for our members to take pictures of and to go along with that we try and organise a local outing so we can all get out and about, socialise and help each other with camera settings and composition.
Then at the end of the month we have a social club evening where we look at the pictures and others with a cup of tea and biscuits.
We also have another meeting where we have a workshop or speaker to improve our knowledge and teach us new techniques.
