Welcome to the Chiang Mai Photographic Group.  We are a mixed bunch of photographers who spend at least some of the year in this great city where the photo opportunities are endless, the food is good and the livin’ is easy.  Well, easy-ish, anyway.

The Chiang Mai Photographic Group was founded in 2004 and aims to further all aspects of the picture taking abilities of its members through the sharing of skills and mutual support in an informal, inclusive and enjoyable atmosphere. All are welcome, regardless of experience - if you want to improve your skills please come along to a meeting and try it out. The CMPG is run solely for the benefit of its members and a 50 baht contribution to our funds is levied at each meeting or field trip which is used to defray general expenses and mount our annual exhibition.

CMPG 10th Anniversary Exhibition at Airport Plaza

We have members who have been in the photography business all their lives, beginners who are just getting to realise how much there is to learn and a whole bunch of talented people who generously share their time and knowledge.  Our regular meetings are normally held every two weeks and you can find details of what's next by following the Forthcoming Events link below.  Come along and share some of your pictures with us soon (See how to submit your pictures on the Event Details page).

We look forward to seeing you soon,
Wyndham & Chris
