Our objective is to promote the enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of photography with a view to producing better pictures.
Bromley Camera Club is for everyone who wants to:
- Create better pictures
- Improve their technical skills
- Develop their critical and aesthetic judgement
- Find an outlet to show their work
- Meet like-minded enthusiasts
- Make new friends
Meetings are held most Thursday evenings from mid-September to May from 8:00PM to 10:00PM. There is a varied programme of talks, competitions and tuition. All meetings, unless stated otherwise, are held at Bromley United Services Club, 33 London Road, Bromley, BR1 1DG. Please click here for a location map.
Our beginners courses are aimed at photographers with a DSLR or more advanced compact camera who may be a little baffled by the plethora of controls, settings and menu options.
Topics covered include:
- Digital camera controls and settings
- Understanding apertures, shutter speeds and ISO
- Management and enhancement of images on the computer
- “What makes a good photograph?”
We don’t yet have any planned course dates for 2013, but will post them here and on Facebook as soon as possible.
Throughout the season, we run regular members’ evenings offering advice and demonstrations, covering all topics from camera controls to Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
Each year the Club stages an exhibition of over 200 prints, slides and projected digital images representing the best of every member’s work. The 2013 Exhibition is being held at Bromley Central Library from 16 to 28 May, admission is FREE.

Outings and Social Events
The Club arranges social events and outings throughout the year to places offering photographic opportunities.
Throughout the season competitions are arranged for members of all abilities in which they can enter prints, slides and projected digital images. Constructive comments from the judges are the best way to learn and to expand your photographic horizons.
