We are very much part of the Bacup community and membership is open to any person over the age of 16 (or 15 if you are a year 11 student). We welcome new members of any level of experience so whatever sort of camera you use, please browse through our site and consider joining us if you think we meet your needs.
Please note that due to increasing restrictions caused by the coronavirus the club has suspended allphysical meeting activities until further notice. There are fortnightly Zoom meetings on Wednesdaysfrom 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. where members can share screens and learn about new techniques andsoftware. The ideal device for joining the meetings is a laptop with built in microphone and camera butyou can still take part with a tablet or smart phone. Andy will be happy to help anybody who is unsureabout setting up Zoom.
