The Chiang Mai Photographic Group started life
several years ago as one of a number of special
interest groups that were spun off from the
Chiang Mai Expat’s Club. It has prospered not
only due to the impetus given to the
photographic industry by the advent of
affordable high quality digital cameras but to
the generous spirit of its members who share
their knowledge and experience freely. The CMPG
strives to maintain a consistently high standard
of work and invites guest speakers, arranges
field trips and even movie evenings.
This exhibition has been made possible by the
support of Digital Photo Shop, AA Insurance,
City Life Magazine, ThaiVisa and Photo Bug –
companies whose generous sponsorship helps keep
the city of Chiang Mai at the forefront of the
creative arts in Thailand.
The exhibition is
open for viewing from 11 am until 8 pm daily
until November 29.
The CMPG meets on Wednesdays at 7.00pm every
fortnight in Tuskers Bar and all those with an
interest in photography, be it film or digital
are warmly invited. For details of meeting dates
please visit www.cmpg.igroops.com. Meetings are
conducted in English but all nationalities are
welcome. For more information please contact:
