Club history The Club was founded in 1891 as the Hove Camera Club, and was affiliated to the Royal Photographic Society. With renewed interest in photography driven by the advent of the digital camera, the Club's membership is growing once more, with every year bringing new members. The Club outgrew its premises, so, in 2008, after 26 years at the English Language Centre, it has moved once more, this time to the Hove Methodist Church Hall.
Encouraged by the Club, many of our recent members have rapidly developed, gaining photographic qualifications and exhibiting nationally and internationally. For example, in 2006 the Surrey Photographic Association (SPA) hung 10 of our photographs in its popular annual exhibition; in 2007, it accepted 21 Brighton entries most from recent members. And our local pub has seen a 40% increase in profits on Tuesday nights!
A key aim of the club is to encourage members to reach their full potential as photographers so we welcome new members whatever their experience of skills including beginners.
We run regular workshops for those working towards Royal Photographic Society distinction, as well as regular technical workshops.
