Introducing the Photographic Group
The Camping and Caravanning Club Photographic Group is a Special Interest Section (SIS) of the Camping and Caravanning Club for members with an interest in photography at all levels of skill and experience. Novices and experienced photographers of all age groups are welcome to join, including young photographers and families.
Thinking of joining?
You will enjoy the benefits of a camera club membership but with a more informal, flexible and friendly experience. All skill levels are encouraged – indeed, welcomed. You may be a novice looking for some friendly advice or a more experienced photographer willing to compete with like minded members. You may be a young member keen to learn and develop digital editing skills. You may hold photographic distinctions or be a professional photographer willing to share your skills with others.
We normally offer monthly Meets between March and October in interesting and varied locations, some at Club sites. The Meets are run by volunteer Stewards from Thursday until the following Tuesday, the weekend allowing those with commitments to attend. The programme may occasionally include a Temporary Holiday Site over a longer period. Each Meet includes daily coffee mornings for informal information exchange, ideal for developing friendships. Evening photographic talks will share photographic knowledge in many entertaining subjects and there will be numerous photographic opportunities and an options to visit nearby places of interest. See the “What happens at Meets” page for more information.
You may wish to share your digital images and prints with fellow members using postal portfolios for prints and a Flickr group for digital images. Both options enable you to gain helpful and friendly critiques. Our Newsletter “Photocamper” is published quarterly.
There are two special events in the Annual Meets programme:
The Festival of Photography and Photographic Group AGM
Daily photographic and craft workshops.
A competition (battle) between the Photographic Section and two Camera Clubs local to the event. All members can submit images for possible selection.
The Annual Exhibition
An opportunity for members to display their work.
Members may submit digital images and prints for judging and awards by an external judge.
A “younger member” section is included.
