Sandown and Shanklin Camera Club is a very active group of digital photography enthusiasts with members from all parts of the Isle of Wight.

We believe the surest way to improve one's own photography is to meet other photographers, look at their work, ask questions and listen to impartial experienced judges critiquing your photographs in friendly competitions.

Every type of photography is represented in the club.  Contact us if you would like to know more.  Our Events Calendar has up to date information on the latest events and competitions.

We are planning on entering the On-Line Southern Federation League again this year.  Any club member wishing to be invited to watch this take place on Zoom is  cordially requested to contact Mike Rooke as soon as possible.
