About the Club

Kempston Camera Club - The photographic society for keen amateur photographers in North Bedfordshire and beyond.

If you found us in the course of looking for a photographic club we would be pleased to see you at any of our non studio group meetings for a small non members entry fee - most at £4 but some lectures at slightly higher amounts. Once you become a member, standard attendance price is £3.

(Studio Group night is members only and attendees pay £12 which includes model costs).

Browse the site and hopefully you will find all of the information that you need. If not drop either the committee or the Web Master an email and we will be delighted to answer any of your questions.

Kempston Camera Club is a small and very friendly group of digital & film photo enthusiasts which has been in existance since 1970. We pride ourselves on being very relaxed and approachable: none of the cliques and stuffiness that characterise so many photo clubs here! We meet most Wednesdays of the year (8-10PM) at the Church of The Transfiguration, Bedford Road, Kempston MK42 8DW.

Kempston Camera Club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the East Anglian Federation (EAF)

All interests are catered for, with a mix of competitions, talks, practicals, visits, etc. However, whilst in no way abandoning our film-based heritage, we are very much tuned into the needs of newcomers to digital imaging. In addition, a thriving studio group is a particular strong point of the club, which attracts photographers from a wide area.

So, if you are looking for a Kempston camera club, a Bedford camera club, or a Bedfordshire camera club or photographic society, please come and join us: let’s develop together! Our current membership covers a wide range of beginners to more experienced photographers who are only too willing to give assistance to other members with the ins and outs of taking the images, preparing them and presenting them in either print of projected formats. Not forgetting of course the knowledge of using software packages such as Photoshop.

*** Club Outing. Sunday 28th June 2015 ***


The June Club outing will be at Carlton Hill Farm for the Carlton British Eventing Horse Trials on Sunday 28th June.

This is a very well organised major event, set in lovely countryside enjoying wide views across Bedfordshire, with plenty of photographic opportunities.

You will see from the website this is a three day event but there is probably more going on on the Sunday when the show ring will include a Companion Dog Show, sheep shearing demonstrations and a falconry display. There will be plenty to see and do including the beer/pimms tent.

Spectators, including photographers, are free to walk the course which includes a water splash, as long as they keep out of the way of the horses.

Entry is £10 per car including all passengers.

Events go on all day so I suggest we arrive whenever we like but aim to meet for a picnic lunch (bring your own), or buy from one of the stalls, at 1.00 pm under the trees alongside the entrance drive. It is quite a long drive so we will be somewhere about half way along on the left as you approach the farm.
