Helensburgh Photographic Club is an active and progressive photographic club and our website gives you, the visitor, an opportunity to see the variety, quality and vision of our members’ work.
The club welcomes photographers of all ages and abilities; from complete beginners to the seasoned and accomplished.
We hold workshops on a variety of topics including basic photography and post-camera techniques for beginners and on advanced techniques for the more experienced photographer. We run a one-to-one mentoring scheme as well as half-hour mini-workshops before each meeting on a variety of topics. Our diverse speaker programme has presentations by notable guests to instruct and inspire us on the art and science of photography.
Internal and external competitions are a keystone of the club’s activities and are a tried and tested method of improving the skills of photographers of all abilities through positive criticism by external judges. Members are encouraged to enter our six internal competitions to improve their photography. The competitions are split into beginners and open sections and anonymity is maintained, other than for the winning images.
The best of our member’s photographs are selected for external competitions, including, locally, the Glasgow District Photographic Union Projected Images League and, nationally, the Scottish Photographic Federation Portfolio.
The Club meets every Tuesday evening during the winter months in the spacious surroundings of the Helensburgh Sailing Club’s clubhouse. Details of how to find the venue are in the 'Find Us' secion of the website. All those living in the area with an interest in photography are cordially invited to join us.
