The Camping and Caravanning Club Photographic Section (Photogroup) is a Special  Interest Section for members with an interest in photography at all levels of skill and experience. Novices and experienced photographers are welcome to join the Section and we particularly seek to encourage the contribution and involvement of young members and families.

Why should I/we join the Photographic Section?

You will effectively enjoy the benefits of camera club membership with a far more informal, flexible and friendly experience. You may be a novice who requires some friendly tuition and advice or a more experienced photographer willing to compete with other like minded members. You may be a young member keen to learn and experience digital image editing skills and techniques. You may hold photographic distinctions and/or be a professional photographer willing to advise and share your skills with others. All skill levels are encouraged and welcomed.

Overall as a Section we seek to provide monthly (March to October) camping Meets in interesting and varied locations (including some Club sites). These are run by volunteer Stewards from 2pm on a Thursday until 12noon on the following Tuesday – the weekend allowing those with work/school commitments to attend. Occasionally the Meets programme may include a Temporary Holiday Site (over a longer period). Each Meet includes daily coffee mornings for informal information exchange and development of friendships. Evening photographic talks are also arranged with objective of improving and sharing photographic knowledge. The location of each Meet will include several photographic opportunities and places of interest to visit.

There are opportunities to share your digital images and prints with fellow members using both postal portfolios for prints and a Flickr group for digital images. Both options allow members to gain helpful and friendly critique of their photographs.

There are two significant events within the Annual Meets programme:

  • The Festival of Photography and Photographic Section AGM
    • Daily photographic and craft workshops
    • A competition (battle) between Photographic Section and two Camera Clubs local to the event. All members are at liberty to submit images for consideration of selection.
    • The Annual General Meeting of the Section receiving reports and election of Council
  • 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
    • This includes a “younger member” section
