Serving Irvine and District

The photographic club at Townend community centre was established over 40 years ago and since then Townend Camera Club has grown in stature to the one that is positively flourishing today. It is acknowledged to be the best equipped photography clubs in Ayrshire.

To keep our club membership pulsating with ideas and allow them to explore their own style, and your programme is geared toward members both new and experienced getting the most from their photography.

So far this season we have had trips to local places of interest, studio nights and visits from lecturers.


Townend Camera Club uniquely has its own studio which we use to teach our members techniques that they can apply in their own portrait work.  

If you are interested in photography and would like to see how like minded people enjoy your hobby, then come along on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm, to our clubhouse in Dreghorn.

What we do

A full and varied programme that runs from September to April.  Competitions, both internal and external, up to national level.  Visits by guest lecturers.  Organised trips to try your skills outdoors.  Tips and advice on photo equipment and techniques.
