Welcome to the website of The Stewartry Camera Club

The club is based in Ringford, Dumfries & Galloway, SW Scotland, and we are home to a bunch of keen photographers from all over Galloway, who range from those just starting to develop their skills, to seasoned professionals.

We always welcome new members so feel free to come along and try us out or contact us for more information at  stewartrycameraclub@gmail.com or 07495 815011


The objective of The Stewartry Camera Club is to encourage the enjoyment and advancement of the art and practice of photography and to provide opportunities for the development of the knowledge and skills of members.

The membership has a wide range of expertise and we are happy to share that with visitors and members who are new to photography through our meetings and events.


The Stewartry Camera Club is believed to have been formed in the 1930s, but we know for certain that it reformed in the early 1960s, and has encouraged several generations since then.
