Welcome to the Sherborne Bradford Abbas
Camera Club

We are a very active, knowledgeable and friendly club, welcoming people from the surrounding area to join us in our passion - the art of photography!

Welcome to the SBA Camera Club!

Our journey began in 1992, when the Sherborne and the Bradford Abbas Camera Clubs merged. Both clubs boasted a small but passionate membership of local talent. The newly formed club found its home in the Bradford Abbas village hall and has since blossomed into the vibrant community we cherish today. Consisting of a relatively small number of members our club prides itself on being friendly, supportive and inclusive. Our membership consists of enthusiastic amateur photographers whose aim are to enjoy each others company whilst also improving their photographic skills and knowledge.

During our meetings we will cover most aspects of photography and associated topics.  Whether your interest is in digital imaging, film, printing, digital manipulation or development, equipment, techniques and style, we aim to cover it all from time to time. As a group we do not directly teach photography, but through participation and talking to others we aim to help with everyone’s development as much as possible. 

It really doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned photographer or a relative newcomer every member is welcome and is encouraged to enter images into competitions, and to participate in workshops/photoshoots. 

Our Mission: Fuelling Creativity

At the SBA Camera Club, we thrive on new ideas and fresh concepts. Our goal is to ignite passion for photography and encourage growth. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned shooter, you’ll find a friendly, warm and inclusive environment within our club. .

Explore and Elevate Your Skills

At the SBA Camera Club, our competitions, workshop nights, and photoshoots provide the perfect platform to hone your photography skills.
