EVENTS
At London Camera Club Meet-Up (LCCM) it's all about peer learning. 
LCCM is a regular gathering of photographers that is open to all levels, so that we can connect, learn and grow together. 
Each session focuses on a different aspect or style of photography, and all are welcome regardless whether you shoot film, or digital, and whatever camera you have. We don't do snobbery here, and all egos are checked at the door.
Sessions can be practical in design to help you grow as a photographer and artist. Here, you will get plenty of shoot time and practice on a particular aspect (from street photography, to sports to studio, or fashion). 
There are also sessions that are created to help you with the business development side, networking, or planning and development of project ideas.
