• The Camera Club is one of the longest-running photographic societies in the world, based in the Old Pickle Factory in Kennington, London - we celebrated our 125th anniversary in 2010.

    We are a club that is entirely inclusive of all levels of photography, from absolute beginners to well-honed professionals. We hold regular weekly and monthly events to nurture skills, support our members, and engage the public at our venue which hosts some of the best, industry-leading facilities in the UK.

    We have 2 fully equipped studios with advanced lighting, 4 of the UK's best darkrooms, a private edit suite and a gallery exhibition space - all in the heart of London.
