Welcome to our site

Founded in 1929 and still going strong today, our aim is to promote the art of photo imagery.

Whether you are just starting out with a camera or are an expert, you are always welcome at Leigh on Sea Camera Club.

We meet on Thursday evenings at St Michael’s Church, SS7 2UW at 7.45 pm. As well as a full range of open and specialist subject competitions, the Club has a variety of lectures to suit all photographic tastes. In addition, we run instructional evenings and social events, including occasional day trips.
