St. Mary’s Bay Camera Club was formed in 1997 by a group of local, like-minded photographers interested in digital photography.
This was at a time when the digital camera was becoming more and more popular and started to replace the traditional film camera.
Originally the club had only 6 or 7 members but, over the years, it has grown to have a membership of about 40, with most using digital cameras.
We are well-known within the Kent County Photographic Association, with which we are affiliated, and have members with all standards of expertise. Being a very friendly camera club, we do our best to help novices improve their techniques and knowledge of the art of photography.
For competitions, all members are divided into either the A or the B Group, with new members automatically joining the more novice B Group (unless they are already more advanced). This ensures that in most competitions, those less experienced are competing against others of a similar skill level.
