Additional Events, Groups and meetings


Summer Outings: Over the past summers club members have arranged several group trips out and it is recommended that you keep a look out for details on the website , Facebook or through emails for the coming close season. Anyone wishing to arrange a trip should get in touch with a member of the committee.


Sub - Groups: Open to any member of Keyworth Camera Club.

There are a number of groups that try and meet on a regular basis with the aim to help each other improve their photography skills in the various different aspects.

Currently there are four different groups that concentrate on Competitions, Nature, Monochrome , plus the New Clickers for the less experienced members to gain more confidence in photography and the equipment.


Anyone wishing to join one of these groups should contact a committee member for more details.


Facebook: The Camera Club has a Facebook presence and members are encouraged to become a friend of Keyworth Camera Club. 


Lots of interesting articles and advice are shared on Facebook, but don't worry if you are not normally a fan of Facebook, we have several secret groups available for members to share images, look at those of others and ask for critique of your own images without the whole world seeing what goes on. We also have a group which was set up specifically for members to participate in the 365 Project of taking and displaying one photo every day of the year.


If you would like more information about joining Facebook and the secret groups please speak to Paul Burrows or another committee member.
