A1 Camera Club
In the current crisis the club is not gather to hold its usual meetings, but is meeting online each week and is undertaking covid-safe outdoor shoots on a Thursday evening.. Members are making presentations and resources such as PowerPoints and PDF documents are made available to members to follow up these.
Please use the contact form to enquire about joining in with these sessions.
Normally meetings are held every Tuesday evening at St Georges Community Centre (BS22 7XF), September to May. The A1 Camera Club is a friendly group of photographers who enjoy photography and are both keen to learn and willing to share expertise. Whatever kind of photography you enjoy or want to explore there will be someone in the club willing to work with you. With regular meetings throughout the year, in the Summer months we leave the hall and go outside to enjoy a rich variety of photographic opportunities across our region.
Our members are very active with local organisations providing photography for events - including with Weston Hospicecare.
Our club is affiliated to the Western Counties Photographic Federation.
Our constitution can be viewed here.

A1 Camera Club was formed at the beginning of the 1980’s by a group of photographers who had just completed a photographic course at Weston College. They named the club after one of the most popular cameras of that time the Canon A1.
