Have you ever had a photography question but couldn’t find anyone to help, or maybe a photograph that needs a review to help you improve your skills, or just someone to talk to about photography? Perhaps it is time to consider joining your local camera club.
The Airdrie & Coatbridge Photographic Club provides its members with an opportunity to improve their photographic skills and knowledge, a venue to challenge their skills, and a forum to share what you have learned with others who have a passion for photography.
The club meets once a week (Tuesday evenings). Each meeting centers around a theme, a workshop (how-to) session on equipment or software, a presentation by a member or expert on a particular subject, a competition between club members or rival clubs, or a night to review and critique other’s work.
Airdrie and Coatbridge Photographic Club was formed in September 1998 by the amalgamation of two local rival (friendly) clubs, namely Monklands Camera Club established in Airdrie in 1893 and Coatbridge Camera Circle established in Coatbridge in 1954. With a membership of approximately 40 adults, ranging from young to young at heart with experience levels from amateur to professional. The one thing we all have in common is a passion for photography, the need to continue learning and the willingness to help our fellow members. During a meeting you will see the 25-year pro teaching the three-year amateur the proper techniques for composition, and 5 minutes later the amateur is teaching the pro about digital storage cards. There is always something new to learn in the world of photography.
