Want to join us?
You may have a few questions before you take the plunge and join Reflex Camera Club. Here, we'll try to answer some of the common questions we get asked. If you still have questions, you can email us.
We are known as Bristol's friendly camera club, you'll be sure of a warm welcome. You can come along to three meetings before committing to become a full member (you just pay £1 at the door, or £3 if it's a guest speaker evening). For this nominal amount, you'll have a great evening, and free refreshments.
Who can join?
Reflex Camera Club is open to all. We have a large and varied membership at present - male, female, old and young. Our members also use a mixture of cameras - Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Pentax, Sony, Olympus - DSLR and mirrorless too. We have plenty of novices, and many experienced at taking landscapes, portraits, macro, street, event, animal and even astro photographs.
At Reflex you are sure to find someone using a similar camera to yourself, and with an interest in the same genre.
When & Where do we meet?
We meet on Thursday evenings from 19:30 hrs at Wicklea Academy in Brislington, Bristol.

Visiting and trying Reflex
If you are considering joining Reflex you are welcome to come along to three meetings before committing to becoming a member. We ask you pay just £1 on these trial evenings to cover our basic costs and provide you with refreshments (it's £3 on the door on evenings when we have external speakers).
How do I become a member?
Speak to either Nick Hale or John Pike on a club night - they're the two friendly faces at the table located at the door.
If you do decide to join us you’ll be asked to fill in a short membership form for our records. The details you enter are kept electronically within a database to which only a couple of committee members have access.
What does it cost?
Our year starts in September each year, but of course you can join at any point in time on a pro-rated basis.
We also charge £1 on the door for each week you attend (children under 16 in a family membership are exempt).
