Mid Argyll Camera Club

About MACC

The Mid Argyll Camera Club is a friendly club of people interested in all aspects of photography. We are centred on Lochgilphead in Argyll & Bute, Scotland. We welcome visitors and beginners to photography.

If you are not sure about joining, come to a few meetings to see what it's like. Meetings are held usually on Wednesdays, between 26th September 2018 and 27th March 2019 at 7.00pm to 9.30pm in the Community Centre, Manse Brae, Lochgilphead see maps .

seeking-shelter We mainly enjoy digital photography - using cameras, computers and inkjet printers. We are mostly amateur photographers, some very experienced and others just starting. Members range from school age to long retired, 50% male and female.

Most events aim to include and help beginners. This year we are starting "Photoschool" sessions. We have talks, photo shows, demonstrations, hands-on practical workshops (with cameras or with laptops), activities with other groups, projects and competitions. About 2/3 of members (some as beginners) often enter digital images or prints in club competitions.

Concentration Exhibitions of members' prints are mounted in the Community Centre, the most recent being a show by several members from February 2018 (open 9 - 9.30 Mon - Thu, 9 - 6.30 Fri).

Prints by members had also been on show at the Mid Argyll Art Society's August 2018 annual exhibition in Lochgilphead. and several were sold .
