Welcome

Forres Camera Club was formed in 1976, back in the days of celluloid and hypo. The original members laid the foundations of a club which is committed to developing the photographic skills of its members while at the same time valuing humour and a friendly, sociable atmosphere. New members are always made welcome and before joining may attend for a couple of weeks to see if the club is for them. The annual membership fee currently stands at £30 plus a £2 charge for each evening attended (includes tea/coffee). For more information on membership or if you think you would like to come along please contact the Secretary using our Contact us page
