St Just and District Camera Club was formed on 17th august 2008, by a small number of local camera enthusiasts. It was formed because at that time St just was lacking an amateur photographic club. Because of the extreme rural nature of the area, the nearest camera club was nearly 10 miles away in Penzance.
As the meetings progressed the club venue was at the ‘Age Concern’ Building in Fore Street. Regular meetings were held twice monthly on a Wednesday evening throughout the winter and spring, and a break was taken in July/August to allow for holidays. The original name for the club was the St Just and District Camera Club, but somehow the name got changed to St Just and Pendeen Camera Club?
At the Annual General meeting in September 2011, members voted unanimously to call the club by it’s original title St Just and District Camera Club.
During most of the Year (weather permitting!) regular ‘Field’ trips are made, in the local area, where instruction on camera use, sometimes with Tripods with the assistance of the more professional members, on lighting, focus, best use of lenses and filters etc…
Today, the club has nearly 30 members, from around the district including St Buryan, Pendeen and Penzance.
New members are always sought, so if you have just taken up the hobby and need help and advice on how to get the best use from your camera, and the final picture, please do call along to one of our regular Wednesday night meetings where you will be made most welcome!
Children and teenagers are welcome too, but please read the clubs constitution for more advice about attending.
