Welcome to the BHCC, based in East Sussex in the UK.

The BHCC is a thriving photographic society with over 150 members of all ages and from all walks of life, interested in all aspects of photography – from film to digital, from traditional landscapes to contemporary images. Members' photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally.

Our aim is to help photographers improve their image-making, both in terms of art and technique.

New members and visitors are very welcome. You can come and be our guests for a week or two, free of charge, to see if you'd like to join. (N.b. This invitation does not extend to those meetings with an entrance charge - See the diary for details). We look forward to seeing you!

This week at BHCC

Tuesday 26th April - CANCELLED - Next Tuesday is the last meeting before the AGM winds up our evening programme for this season. We have a presentation by Jim Mortram, on social documentary. A glance at his website shows mostly monochrome, very powerful images dealing with people in situations many of us would find difficult to approach photographically. Not really 'street', more a moving commentary on the times we live in

STOP PRESS - Sadly next Tuesday's presentation with Jim Mortram has been cancelled due to serious illness. We have not had a good year with cancellations. Luckily IAN HUGHES has agreed to move his booking forward from next season. A superb photographer, photographing everything from football grounds at night to cruise ship photography. A real favourite of mine, I have been tracking his work for years. A treat I promise. ianhughesphotos.com 7.30pm Free.

Follow up on the film photo day out on 19th March. If you have your prints back or have printed them yourself via darkroom or some digital jiggery pokery then please bring them along next Tuesday 26th to be handed in to Peter for entry into the draw. Please indicate for each image which of the 3 subjects it relates to. And if you can also bring scans of them on a memory stick then it will enable us to project them at the AGM. The prints don't need to be mounted unless of course you would like to do that
