Welcome to the
Brighton and Hove Camera Club

We are one of the largest camera clubs around with 127 members and most certainly one of the oldest, as were founded in 1891.

As we are a large club, we are fortunate in that we can attract high profile, national & international, photographers and other professionals to come along and present to us. Aside from the professionals, we put on workshops, have a dedicated (somewhat unique) New Members Group, put on social events, day trips, photo walks and more. We are a friendly lot and always welcome new members. Our weekly members evenings are at the Hove Methodist Church, Main Hall.

Our Club

The BHCC, based in East Sussex UK, is a thriving photographic society with a large number of members of all ages and from all walks of life. We are all passionate about photography and love to welcome new members.

Our Members

We have a large, friendly and diverse membership of 127 photographers all with an interest in improving their creative image skills, both in terms of art and technique. We’re always willing to share our photographic knowhow and experience.

Our Interests

As a group we are interested in all aspects of photography including, film, digital, traditional landscapes, portraits, contemporary, macro, natural and artificial light. We also enjoy our weekly club events and various social gatherings.
