About

We are a very friendly club and visitors are more than welcome. If you are thinking of joining a camera club, come along for an evening. Whatever your photography experience we would love to meet you.  Our existing members will only be too pleased to guide, advise and to encourage.

We normally meet every Wednesday from September to April at The Friends Meeting House, Elliot Park, Keswick CA12 5NZ. The Meeting House is opposite Booths Supermarket car park and Bus Station. Parking available.

This season from September 2022 to April 2023 we are again meeting at the Friends Meeting House and visitors are welcome. We will continue to stream as many meetings as possible via Zoom for members who are unable to attend. Our programme can be seen on the diary page.

    An evening with Rod Wheelans and Anne Greiner

    7:30 pmThis season from September 2022 we are again meeting at the Friends Meeting House. We will continue to stream meetings, when possible via Zoom for members who are unable to attend.

    This will be a live talk only with Rod Wheelans and Anne Greiner talking about their work in prints. It will not be shared via Zoom or recorded.

    Anne is a very active member of Dumfries Camera Club and her work has contributed significantly to their wide-ranging success in National and Inter-Club competitions. She is one of only a few people who have achieved the Credit, Distinction and Master Award of the PAGB. Anne is a PAGB Listed judge. She has judged many International Exhibitions but never a club competition! She is a member of the London Salon.
    Rod joined the Dumfries club in 1983 and has served as their President three times. He has been a member of the SPF Executive for more than 25 years and has been SPF President. He joined the PAGB Executive in 1990 and served as President 2005-2007 and is now their Hon. Life Vice President. He organised and chaired the PAGB Inter-Club Print Championship from its inception in 1997 until 2016 and the PAGB GB Cup from its inception in 2008 to 2015 but he considers his most important contribution to be as non-voting Chairman of the PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit. Rod also produces the PAGB e-news and the SPF e-flash.
    Rod has previously been a member of the RPS Council and has served on the Associate and Fellowship Panels for Visual Art, Photo Travel and Professional & Applied.
    He is a member of the London Salon.
    Rod has now retired as a successful professional photographer with a busy studio - twice MPA Scottish Portrait Photographer of the Year – but through their professional years he and Anne have never lost their amateur roots, competing and exhibiting widely. (Don’t ask who is currently the most successful!)
    Between them, over 5 decades, they have many thousands of acceptances and several hundred Awards in National and International exhibitions.
    “Nowadays we tend to pick and choose the exhibitions we enter – usually the more difficult ones!”
