Gansbaai Fotografieklub / Photography Club

The Gansbaai Photography Club was started in 2011 by Sanchia Chivell and her father, Wilfred, with a group of people with a common interest in photography, meeting together at the Great White House in Kleinbaai.

It was clear from the outset that there was a lot of interest shown both the practical and the theoretical side of photography. The club bagan to grow in membership and was open to anyone who was interested in photography, whatever the level of expertise and that the focus of the club was on taking the best photographs with the equipment available to you. The atmosphere has always been informal and relaxed.

Christo Wessels and Linda Kloppers then took over the running of the club in 2012 when Sanchia left and did a sterling job at getting the club to where it is today with the format of the meetings being either guest speakers, theme evenings or practical training was well supported and enjoyed by everyone.

The new committee for 2015-2016 are : Riaan Jacobs (Chairman) Veronica du Plessis (Secretary/Treasurer/Social) Marc du Plessis (Media/Presentations) Clive Bailey (Photography Skills/Training) Jane Bailey (Competitions/Speakers)
