WELCOME

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.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'VE GOT...
A photographer went to an exclusive socialite party in London. As she entered the front door the host said to her "I really love your photo's; you must have a fantastic camera!". She remained silent until dinner was over and then turned to the host and said "That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a fantastic cooker!".

BACKGROUND: The Focus Group was formed nine years ago by some photographers in the South of England who wished to work together, to share ideas and to hold public exhibitions of their work. Each year they travel together to explore a new area of the UK to unlock its visual secrets. The members are also involved in advising, teaching and mentoring other photographers, both locally and more widely. They are all closely involved with Chichester Camera Club. This will be the sixth exhibition of their latest work which ranges widely from traditional Landscapes to Urban scenes, Abstracts and Experimental Imaging. The six members of the Group are:
Iain McGowan FRPS; Janey Devine FRPS; Peter Bamforth ARPS; Bill McKnight ARPS; Nigel Chapman; John Bradshaw FRPS.

Web Site: The Focus Group has a website which provides detailed information about the six members of the Group and Galleries of their work, including some images which will be on show at the exhibition. Visit them at focusgroupphotography.com
