for photography enthusiasts | people, resources, inspiration
The Club meets twice a week (Mondays and Wednesdays from 7.45pm to 10pm) all year round in our own facilities in the Tilgate Forest Recreation Centre (Hut 16). This is situated on a forest/parkland site used by other Crawley-based clubs and organisations.
We welcome all photography enthusiasts whatever their level of ability and interest. Our members range from beginners to advanced practitioners.
Our programme runs throughout the year from the beginning of July. In July/August we have flexible sessions usually incorporating summer workshops based at the Hut. From Sept to June we have a full programme of around 80 events including instruction sessions, competitions, studio evenings, talks and demonstrations. In 2020 we introduced online Zoom meetings during the period when we could not meet at the Hut, and the success of these means we are likely to have some online sessions in programmes going forward – Zoom is particularly useful when organising speakers for talks from wider afield.
We have our own competitions for Prints and Projected Digital Images (PDIs), and as a Club we enter external competitions.
We have our own dark room and excellent studio facilities available for our members to use.
Whatever your photography problems fellow members are always willing to help you sort them out. We provide tuition, help and encouragement, especially to beginners.
The Club welcomes new members. Your first visit is free. Membership fees includes all meetings and a flexible studio / darkroom session per month (additional sessions can be booked at preferential rates). Members may bring a guest (up to a set number of meetings per year at the discretion of the Committee). Visitors may also attend meetings for which there is a charge per meeting.
