Welcome to Exeter Camera Club


About Us

Founded in 1890, Exeter Camera Club was one of the first to beformed in England. Over the years the club has had many illustrious members who have seen their passion evolve from black & white film and chemical developing through to colour digital imagery and computer processing. Along this journey Club members have, and still do, embrace all genres of photographic art. 

We welcome opportunities to communicate and form relationships with other photographic organisations locally, across the United Kingdom and Internationally and contact can be easily made with us via our “Contact Us” page.  Click here to Join Us

Clubs throughout the West Country are linked through the Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and ultimately to the FIAP – “Fédération International de l’Art Photographique”.
