In the new season we will be using a new competition format, more on the lines of individual competitions.

Meanwhile if your a member,  check out our Townend Camera Club  Facebook page.

Our next formal season starts in early September, our programme of events is being  formalised as you read this. Check back here for the latest updates.

New Season

Townend Camera Club was established over 40 years ago. Since then it has grown in stature and size to the club that is flourishing today. It is acknowledged to be the best equipped photographic club in Ayrshire.

To keep our club membership pulsating with ideas and allow them to explore their own style, we regularly hold workshops on the fundamental areas of photographic skills. Furthermore we are hoping to develop a programme of more advanced techniques. Ranging from tips on camera equipment to that of designing photographic work flows.

Our club is currently in its summer season, during this time we will be going on day trips to various local events and having an informal meeting on Wednesday nights. If the weather is good we will be heading out to capture it all.

Our Clubhouse

Our ‘compact ‘camera club is on the ground floor with easy disability access. Its a modern and adaptable facility that allows us to quickly change the set up for different demonstrations and shows.

Its part of Townend Community Centre, hence the name.

Parking is available just outside the club if you get there early enough with lots more just the other side of the centre.  There is a great bar just across the road with a chippy just up the road a bit.
