About Us

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!

What we do...

During a Club Night you could find yourself learning Photoshop, Lightroom or how to put an audio visual presentation together. Club Nights are great for small informal groups to practice skills such as studio lighting.Click


Guest speakers are regularly invited to the club to give talks on photographic subjects and to provide training. Most of our competitions are also judged anonymously by external judges who will also provide feedback where possible. Find out more.Click


The club participates in both internal and external competitions. The entries are usually submitted anonymously and are judged by an external judge. There are several cups which are awarded annually and inter club competitions. The current competitions are here.Click


The club has several outings a year. A scheduled outing forms part of the syllabus and is a good opportunity to get images for the Natural History competition and there are numerous less formal outings arranged by the members during the season and the closed period.Click
