Tony Nutley - Diary of a TV Photographer

Please see our PROGRAMME page for full details.


You don't have to be an 'Expert Photographer' to be welcomed as a member of Chichester Camera Club. All you need is an interest in photography.

The Chichester Photographic Society was formed in 1893 and actively continued until 1945. After a four year break it was re-formed in 1949 under the name of CHICHESTER CAMERA CLUB and has continued as such to the present day and is recognised as one of the most active and successful Camera Clubs in the South of England.

In addition to our weekly meetings we also hold regular meetings for those interested in Audio Visual; Digital Imaging; Portraiture; Printing and Royal Photographic Society Distinctions. Regular monthly walks take place during the year and a summer programme of walks during the closed season.


Chichester Camera Club were joint Runners-up in the Southern Federation A/V Competition last Sunday, (26th October). The three entries were: 'A Day in Rajasthan' by Ann McDonald ARPS, DPAGB. 'Beside The Seaside' by Carole Speight ARPS, DPAGB, APAGB. and 'A Weekend in August' by Graham Sergeant FRPS. Carole also received a Highly Commended Certificate for her entry.


Photography News is a monthly newspaper issued free to camera clubs across the country, including Chichester Camera Club. It is edited by Will Cheung FRPS who also edits Advanced Photographer magazine and gives talks and presentations at camera clubs. (Some of you may have seen his presentation a couple of years ago at Bognor Regis Camera Club).

Increased demand for the newspaper coupled with a limited monthly production run has meant that the number of copies issued to this club has been reduced from 25 a month to just 10. Fear not, however, as there is now a free download version of the paper that you can read on your Mac, PC, iOS or Android device. Click here: PN10 to look at the current edition (#10 - September 2014).
