Are you a photographer who wants to develop their photography or photographic skills? You may be just starting out in photography or you may be a seasoned enthusiast.  Wherever you are in your journey if you want to develop your interest, we may be the place for you.

Mid Sussex Camera Club is based in Burgess Hill. We meet on Monday evenings, from 7:45 pm to 10 pm from September to April. Membership costs £48 (£43 for state pension age) per year. And, above all, we are a friendly & inclusive group of people who share a passion for taking photographs.

Be Our Guest

If you would like to discover more about MSCC, you can try before you buy. Just send us a message, saying which 1 or 2 meetings you would like to attend. It's usually a good idea to attend a speaker event and a competition evening.

Where MSCC Meets

Mid Sussex Camera Club Activities

The club offers many photography related activities, as well as some purely social events. All activities are optional so members can opt to take part in those elements of the programme that interest them. Activities include:

101 Battery Level Colour

External Speakers

During each season we invite around a dozen or so photographers who are accomplished in their chosen photographic genre to talk around a selection of their images. These talks are both inspirational and informative.

101 Clouds Colour

Monthly Competitions

There are six ranking competitions each season, scored by an external judge, the results of which are cumulative on a league table basis. Competitions are for both projected and printed images. The leagues are split into ability classes.

101 Lights Colour

Standalone Competitions

During each season there are usually two standalone competitions which have outright winners based on the individual images submitted for that competition. These are judged by an external judge. Themes usually include 'Sussex', 'Nature', or 'Panel'. The finale of the season is the 'Picture of the Year' competition.

101 Photograph 19 Colour

External Competitions

MSCC is affiliated to the Sussex Photographic Federation (SxPF), The Surrey Photographic Association (SPA), The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and The Regnum Crouch Group. These provide access to competitions each year, giving members' images a wider audience and a higher level of competition.

101 Photograph 31 Colour

Portrait Group

The club owns high-quality studio equipment which is used by the group to photograph a different model at each session. The Portrait Group meets monthly during the season on a Friday evening.

101 Photograph 39 Colour

Internal Workshops

Several times a season an evening is devoted to an internal workshop where we share knowledge and practice particular technical skills. These evenings have featured image mounting, post processing, portraiture and close-up photography.

Open Events

Non-members are welcome to attend Guest Speaker events. All events are £5 per ticket. To buy tickets, click on the event. Payment is either by card or Paypal
