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.
Meetings are held usually on Wednesdays, between 25th September 2013 and 19th March 2014, at 7.00pm to 9.30pm in the Community Centre, Manse Brae, Lochgilphead (see map).
We mainly enjoy digital photography - using cameras, computers and inkjet printers - although a few make prints from film. We are mostly amateur photographers, of all levels of experience from beginners up.
Most events aim to include and help beginners. We have talks, photo shows, demonstrations, hands-on practical workshops (with cameras or with laptops), activities with other groups, projects and competitions. Last year about 2/3 of members (half as beginners) entered digital images or prints in at least one club competition.
In the 2011/2012 session we carried out a joint project with members of the Fyne Art Club, who produced work inspired by MACC members photos, which were shown at the Fyne Art Club 2012 summer exhibition, together with the photos, at the Lochgilphead Community Centre.
Exhibitions of members' prints are mounted in the Community Centre, the most recent being from 26th April 2013 (open 9 - 9.30 Mon - Thu, 9 - 6.30 Fri).
There is usually a social evening before Christmas, and an informal prize giving meal in the Spring.
There are also occasional summer outings, sometimes at short notice as a good photographic opportunity arises (eg on 19th May 2012 we went to Benmore Gardens).
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.
MACC is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and to the Federation International de L'Art Photographique (FIAP) through the Scottish Photographic Federation (SPF), and the club takes part in their activities. Individual members also submit prints and digital images to competitions and exhibitions run by other organisations under the patronage of British Photographic Exhibitions (BPE) and the FIAP, and some seek their awards and distinctions.
