Each year we put together a fresh programme, tailored towards the diverse and varied requirements of our members. Our aim is always to cater for those who are new to photography and more the experienced photographers.
While we do our very best to stick to the programme it can occasionally change at short notice. We will try to email you, but it is always best to check this page on our website frequently and follow the Club’s Facebook page as this is where the latest information will be published. For anyone interested in joining Larne Camera Club or joining any of the sessions listed above, please just contact us for details (Zoom links / meet up locations etc).
Notes: Always bring your camera equipment to each meeting. Field Trips are for Members only -this is an insurance requirement. Open Evenings Sponsored by McFarlane's Pharmacy Plus: Held in the main hall, these evenings feature a guest speaker and are open to Club members and non-members Show & Tell: These are sessions where either a Club member will explain their thinking behind one (or more) of their images, follow up showing images taken by members at a field trip, or an advance look at images being considered for a NIPA round. . LCC Magazine: A mixed bag of photography-based news, product reviews, info about possible field trips, and an open forum to swap ideas. Most nights have an 'admission' fee of £2:00 to help cover costs, or £5:00 if we have a guest speaker. Open Evenings are open to both Members and Non-members. Fees on these nights are generally £5:00 including refreshments. We are non-profit making organisation and all monies go towards the running costs of the club.
