The Malden Camera Club is a great place to meet keen photographers, to learn about and, more importantly, to enjoy your photography.

We are a group of like-minded individuals – but our photographs show that we really have a wide range of styles. We meet on most Thursday Evenings at New Malden Library to listen to talks, to take part in workshops or in entering internal competitions. And everyone who joins finds that their pictures do improve and that they get more fun out of their photography.

We make everyone welcome, regardless of their experience of photography, and regardless of what sort of cameras they may have: you really don’t need a high powered, high cost camera to take great photos. What you need is you and your ability to see a great picture! 

As well as having meetings at the Library, we regularly go out on photo shoots: In 2018 we had trips to the Oxford Street Christmas lights, watching and snapping the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in London and a number of walks in local parks and in different areas of London. These are great opportunities to take pictures together with other photographers and to improve/share your practical skills. 

We are actively involved in helping our local community by being available to take photos of charity events and assisting with local publicity. We have recently been involved with talks at a local Care Home and creating images for the Citizens Advice Kingston website. And, of course, we are always very much part of the Malden Fortnight festivities.

Come and try us out – there is no cost for coming along to do this. There is an annual membership fee, but this is reasonable and will only be charged when you decide to become a member. 

I look forward to meeting you!
