The Club has impressive photography resources available to members, guests and occasional visiting photographers or groups wanting to develop their imaging skills or just use our facilities. We believe this differentiates us as a photography club in and around the Crawley area.
We have occasional studio “open days” planned for you to see our studio/darkroom facilities.
Club members have flexible free access to the studio/darkroom (subject to membership terms and conditions).
Non-members can contact us via the contact form for further details on visiting, using and booking our studio/darkroom.
The on-site studio is a large open space with studio flash and lighting, backdrop mounts, wall and other props available for use by members and visitors. The adjacent meeting space can also be used as an additional (larger) studio space. We also have a separate changing room for models and lounge/small kitchen area. There is ample parking around the building.
We have an on-site (wet) darkroom equipped for black and white developing and printing. This is an ideal facility to learn the basics and more advanced techniques or to process your own films and prints.
Our Meeting Space
This is used for our regular meetings and has seating for up to 60-70 persons (maybe more depending on configuration) with small kitchen/lounge facilities. It has a permanent exhibition of our “Prints of Year” back to 1970s and temporary exhibitions of the work of particular Club members. It can also be used as a larger studio area.
Practical tutorials and training
We are able to provide practical training sessions which can be 1-1 or small group based in our studio/meeting space. Topics are varied – including introductory “getting to know your camera”, introductory and more advanced digital image processing (eg “photoshop” or similar), studio lighting, print mounting, etc. Content and timing can be varied to suit individuals or groups.
