Additional online rounds in July 2020 using any of  “JQK” and August 2020 using any of “VXZ” complete the alphabet after using CRAWLEY caMera clUB last year.

Image subjects should be inspired by, or start with, the chosen letter for each month. Images for any month can be taken at any time in 2020-2021 (during lockdown this restriction doesn’t apply – so ample opportunity to look at recent archives or plan ahead).  Further details are included in the programme.

Camera, digital, studio, darkroom help

We offer photography and digital imaging practical/coaching sessions to help you improve your images and get more from your camera.  We can be flexible over timing to suit your availability. Sessions can be varied to suit particular requirements of beginners and more experienced enthusiasts and can be 1-1 or small group based in our meeting space.

In particular, beginners can sign up for our “Getting to know your camera” session which includes a month’s membership of the Club to meet our members, experience our meetings and get more tips.

Additionally we have studio “open days” for you to see or use our studio/darkroom facilities.

Please contact us via the contact form to talk about your specific needs.
