Fermoy Camera Club
Fermoy Camera Club meet twice monthly on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 8:00 pm in the Anderson Room (upstairs).
Fermoy Camera Club’s ethos is to provide an association of like-minded people, to enjoy, to share and to advance their photographic skills and to have “fun with photography”. We encourage photography within the community and use photography to the benefit of the community by providing pictorial records of its people, its environs and local events.
Our first meeting of each month consists of a workshop or a talk by an expert. The second meeting is our competition night where each member displays a photo (anonymously) based on a theme for that Month. We all vote on the photos and have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th on the night. The top ten each month go forward for our photographer of the year competition. We also have field trips, local & social outings, exhibitions and participate at festivals. You are welcome to attend two meetings as a guest and there is a small cover charge of €2 for the hall, teas and coffees etc. Our Club year is from January to January and membership is €50 + €2 for each meeting to cover hall and teas etc. Membership is open to everybody over 18 years of age.
