Find out more about Carnoustie Camera Club
Carnoustie Camera Club was formed in 1961 and we aim to encourage interest in photography by way of talks, exhibitions, competitions, workshops and excursions. Our members meet socially to share skills and ideas, and we participate in internal and external competitions in order to find inspiration and hone our photographic skills.
The club is informal and welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. Learn to get that camera off of the automatic settings, start taking control and create images that you did not think were possible. Push yourself in the competitions and get work published!

Mark has had an interest in photography for many years, going back to the ‘good old days’ of film and has been a member since 2004. This is his second year as Club President. Since joining the CCC he has gained confidence and experience not only in the techniques of ‘shooting’ but also in photo manipulation and the mounting of prints, etc. Mark is very interested in developing the Club to become more of an educational resource for the local area. In addition to his interest in photography he is also a local radio presenter with Radio North Angus and a member of the Arbroath Speakers Club. His other passion at the present moment is RPM biking as an aid to losing weight and keeping fit.
Richard is an avid photographer who was trained on Nikon film and later digital systems. His preferred subjects are portraits and wildlife, however he has also found himself shooting landscapes, scenes of crime, press photography and has photographed many weddings. In addition to his photographic endeavors he also wrote and maintains the club website.
I have been interested in photography for many years and enjoy taking wildlife and landscape pictures. I try to tell a story with my wildlife shots and enjoy the challenge of taking wildlife in its environment. One advantage of this is that it requires very little post processing to create the finished image. Most of my landscapes are captured during holidays and I love sunrise and sunsets which bring an amazing quality of light. Now in my 3rd year as Secretary of the Club I look forward to a successful year for members and visitors.
John has been the club Treasurer for 10 years and lists all forms of transport as his main photo subjects. He still has a film SLR and is now experimenting with video production. John says "The enjoyment of photography or the frustration of it is that you are always learning and developing -there is no end to the skill and interest - if you want to say "I now know it all" you will be disappointed !" and "I am pleased that members find the club to be of value year after year and it seems to move forward with new members growing taller (wider with the free refreshments) as they grow their skills"
