About Us

Chichester Camera Club is friendly and sociable. Our members are united by a passion for making photographs. We aim to help members develop their skills by offering opportunities for learning, friendship, inspiration, creativity and exploring new ideas and techniques. 

One of the best regarded photographic societies in the south of England, our large membership comes from across West Sussex and east Hampshire. Members’ skills and experience range from newcomers to multi-award winners happy to share their knowledge. 

We have a lively programme of visiting speakers, competitions, educational meetings and social events.

Weekly meetings

We meet regularly on Thursdays at 7.30pm from September to the end of May at Tangmere Village Centre, Malcom Road, Tangmere, Chichester, PO20 2HS (just beyond the Co-op).  

Special Interest Groups

  • Our Developers’ Group is for anyone wishing to improve core technical skills, through teaching evenings and photowalks where we practise techniques and experiment as well as socialise and exchange ideas
  • Other groups focus on photo editing, printing, multimedia and portraits
  • RPS and PAGB groups help members who are seeking distinctions from those organisations.


Chichester Camera Club is also renowned for its exhibition programme, with three exhibitions each year; possibly more than any other club in the area. The January and April exhibitions allow members freedom to choose their subject matter and layout, whilst the August Summer Exhibition is a more formal showcase for the best work by all members.
