About Us

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

This Club aims to be the friendly focus for photography in Bolton.

The Bolton Camera Club has been bringing photography enthusiasts together for well over a century to practice and improve their techniques in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Whatever your interest in photography we believe you will enjoy visiting this club and meeting like-minded people.

We hope this website will give you an insight into the activities of our club, as well as a flavour of the photographic styles and images by our members. We hope you will enjoy seeing the world through our eyes (and cameras!).
