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 campus used by other Crawley-based clubs and organisations.
We have our own dark room and excellent studio facilities available for our members to use. Non-members may also arrange to use our facilities subject to availability.
We welcome all photography enthusiasts whatever their level of ability and interest. Every day we learn something new. Our members range from beginners to advanced practitioners of the highest standard.
Our programme of about 80 events, runs from 1st of September to 31st of August of each year. Within this programme there are instruction sessions, competitions, studio evenings, lectures, outings and demonstrations.
On our studio evenings there are always experienced members on hand to show you how to use both electronic studio flash and lights.
We run our own competitions for Prints and Digital Projected, and as a Club we enter external and county competitions. We encourage members to enter national and international exhibitions.
For the experienced photographer there is the pleasure of entering your most creative work to be seen by fellow photographers who will appreciate and stimulate your talent.
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 and 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.
