Mid Argyll Camera Club

About MACC

proud_parents The Mid Argyll Camera Club is a friendly club of people interested in all aspects of photography. We cover 25 miles north and south of Lochgilphead in Argyll & Bute, Scotland. We welcome visitors and beginners to photography.

We mainly enjoy digital photography - using cameras, phones & tablets, 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.

Meetings are normally held on Wednesdays, between September and March, at 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Lochgilphead - see location. If you are not sure about joining, come to a few meetings to see what it's like, or contact us with our web form below.

You can see our current programme of events, and the previous year's events . We also have outdoor and online meetings - members are contacted directly about plans on Facebook and by email or phone.

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.
