About us

We are a really friendly camera club who meet weekly in the Function Room of The Leyburn Bolton Arms in Leyburn on Monday evenings at 19:15 for 19:30. We have a varied programme of events from September to April each season and also meet up for occasional outings during the summer. We always try to include a variety of different sessions on the programme, from guest speakers to hands-on workshops such as table-top photography and portraiture sessions. We also hold a series of in-club competitions for both printed images and DPI (digitally projected images), as well as competing in the North Yorkshire South Durham (NYSDPA) competitions. 

Fees for membership are:

Annual single (new members): £25
Annual single: £40
Annual joint (two persons resident at the same address): £54
Annual junior £12
Visitors £3

This is a one-off fee and there will be no charges on the night
