hay camera club programme of events
Because of the Coronavirus threat all meetings of the Club have been suspended until further notice. However, members continue to discuss Club business and exchange information, images and advice using a variety of methods, including video conferencing. We have now improvised a regular "lockdown" programme of online sessions using free, proprietary software for the next few months, as detailed below. If you are considering joining the Club and would like to take part in one of these sessions, please contact us. We shall resume our normal programme as soon as it is safe to do so.
This restricted online programme will continue to be developed further into the New Year depending on the Government health advice received.

Chasing the Light. Shooting in different conditions (golden hour, blue hour, poor light, harsh light, after

Our Club meetings are normally held every Tuesday evening between 7:30pm and 9:30pm in the Masonic Hall, Brecon Road (B4350), Hay on Wye, HR3 5DY (see directions below). We normally take a break from meetings in July and August, but may take the opportunity to arrange practical sessions and outings instead if the weather permits.
New members are always very welcome to come along and observe a meeting before joining. The programme below will give you a feel for the scope of our meetings and the variety of speakers and competitions we organise during the year. If you have other questions please contact us.
DIRECTIONS: Leaving the centre of Hay heading West on the B4350 and passing the Swan Hotel (on the right-hand side), the road curves to the right. The Masonic Hall is some 200 yards further on, set back on the right. There is a free car park almost opposite, adjacent to the tennis courts and Bowls Club.
