Mid Argyll Camera Club

Mid Argyll Camera Club

Who ... what ... where?

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 30th September 2015 and 23rd March 2016, 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.

Exhibitions of members' prints are mounted in the Community Centre, the most recent being a solo show by Jimmy Kinloch from 16th July 2015 (open 9 - 9.30 Mon - Thu, 9 - 6.30 Fri).

32 prints by nine members were also on show at the Mid Argyll Art Society's annual exhibition in the Drill Hall, Lochgilphead, from August 3rd to 8th (10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday).

There is usually a social evening before Christmas, and an informal prize giving meal in the Spring.

There are also occasional summer outings - eg 23rd May 2015 - sometimes at short notice as an opportunity arises.

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.
