What's New

3,700 Visitors!
A very busy time for the Haworth Art Gallery saw more than 3,700 people pass through its doors from June 12 to July 26 - many of whom will have had chance to view our annual exhibition at the venue. We are delighted so many people were able to view the members’ work and hope they found it an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. As part of the exhibition, visitors were asked to name their favourite print, with the chance of winning an unframed A4 copy. The winner, picked out at random, is Mike Hesp, from Little Lever, Bolton, who wins a copy of Oliver Dorée’s picture Going, Going Gone. Two prints received the most votes - Steve Hooton's print Moonrise over Derwent Water and Michael Whittaker's Early Morning Stroll. Congratulations to each of you.

Mentoring Help
Don't forget that as an Accrington Camera Club member it is possible to receive some photographic mentoring from a more knowledgeable or experienced member of the club. So whether you want to know more about your camera settings, how best to convert images to mono, or any other query - get in touch with our president Wayne and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

Monthly Competitions
Members please note that from September 2014 onwards, entrants to the monthly competitions must fill in the entry form HERE and email it with their entries to the monthly competition secretary in advance of the closing date. This is to make the task of handling the large number of entries as easy as possible.

Loan Service
Don't forget that members have access to equipment owned by the club. Laptop and projector - see Mary Braithwaite. Calibration Spyder - see Martin Yates. Slide scanner - see Harry Emmett.


Accrington Camera Club is a group of friendly and enthusiastic photographers pursuing all aspects of image capture.
We welcome all levels of photographers, from complete beginners to advanced workers, and have a wide range of experiences which we willingly share. This experience comes from our own photographers - darkroom workers and digital image workers.

We produce all styles of images, from 'record' (e.g. images of buildings) through to 'salon' style digital manipulated work, in both mono and colour, utilising many types of cameras from basic compact cameras up to professional DSLRs.

Accrington Camera Club promotes photography by:
  • Illustrated lectures and the viewing of national portfolios
  • Practical demonstrations and
    hands-on evenings
  • Friendly monthly competitions
  • Freely given advice on all aspects of photography
  • Loan equipment available for members' personal use,
    e.g. slide scanner, screen calibration device etc
