A friendly club for photographers of all standards

Do you enjoy taking photographs? Do you want to improve your photography? Do you want to meet other local photographers? Do you want to have fun with your camera? If the answer to any of these is yes then South Woodham Ferrers has just the club for you.


South Woodham Ferrers Camera Club is a very friendly group of local amateur photographers who enjoy getting together to learn more about the subject and, if we want to, have our efforts judged in one of our regular appraisal evenings.  The main ethos of the club is having fun and enjoying ourselves so why not come along on a Wednesday evening when you will receive a very warm welcome and make a lot of new, like minded friends.  The many benefits of joining a club like ours include learning from other members and also having people we can talk through photographic problems with and get inspiration from. 


We meet at 8pm every Wednesday evening from September until the end of May in the small hall at the back of the bar in the Village Hall in Hullbridge Road. Access is from the car park at the corner of the building opposite the “Blue Cage”.


We look forward to the pleasure of your company at one of our meetings – you won’t regret it; we’ll even give you two free evenings with tea and biscuits so what have you got to lose
