Not this year though!

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

The Club meets every week to look at photos, talk about photos and techniques, have our photos critiqued by qualified judges......and more.

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.

The Covid-19 restrictions look as they will prevent us meeting as usual until January 2021.  We hope not, but after careful consideration, taking on board the current advice regarding the health risk by meeting indoors in a restricted space, we will observe all Government guidelines.

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.

INSTAGRAM - a place to show off your images, or a place to pick up ideas or even inspiration from other photographers?

Few photographers operate entirely in isolation.  It's ok to develop and challenge ideas and copy concepts from others.

​Below are is a selection of images from Instagram that might catch your attention - but all of us are different and like different types of photographs.
