Corby Photographic Club originated in 1936 when it was then the Camera Section within Stewart & Lloyds Welfare Club. The Club currently meet each Wednesday evening - from September to May in the Meeting Room of Stanion Community Centre. During the summer months the club is “on location” for an opportunity to take those winning shots. These summer meetings are held around the county, starting earlier in order to take any pictures before dusk. It is always a social evening and there is usually a nearby hostelry for anyone to take advantage of before wending their way home. Just one meeting per month is held in Stanion, usually on the last Wednesday, to enjoy the Monthly Competition of Prints and PDI's, having a set or open subject.

If you are a keen photographer yourself, or just enjoy seeing photographs taken by others, then why not join us? The winter meetings begin at 8pm and last for a couple of hours. Visiting lecturers often give us a talk on their chosen photographic subject or speciality, or perhaps a travel log, which is both entertaining as well as informative
Our Annual Competition is held in April for both novice as well as advanced workers. This is a chance to win various shields and trophies which are held for one year within five categories: architecture, miscellaneous, nature, pictorial, portraiture. During the year many opportunities arise to enter work in national competitions to compete with other photographic club members from around the country.
