Photography is a wonderful way for unpaid carers to have a break from their caring responsibilities and to be creative. The Carers' Camera Club provides an opportunity for carers to meet in a safe, informal, relaxed and supportive environment where they can develop their creativity and learn more about photography and associated skills.
The Carers' Camera Club is different to a typical camera club. The Club has members with a wide range of skills, equipment and experience, ranging from those using mobile phones to those who use DSLRs and image processing software.
Ordinarily, we meet mid-morning once a month in Welwyn Garden City but our members come from all parts of the county. There is a photo challenge at each meeting, where we offer one another supportive comments and critiques. We also have occasional outings. There are several members who cannot attend the meetings but who keep in touch by email. Email is our main way of communicating with one another.
The Carers' Camera Club is open to unpaid carers who are registered with Carers in Hertfordshire. If you are interested in joining, please contact Carers in Hertfordshire on 01992 586969 or by emailing . They will then pass on your details to the Club coordinator.
The Camera Club is planning its third exhibition entitled “A day in the life”, at the New Maynard Gallery in Welwyn Garden City. This has had to be postponed owing to the current restrictions and we very much hope to reschedule the exhibition dates soon. Further details are published on the Gallery’s website: https://newmaynardgallery.co.uk/
