When you become a member of Central Highlands Imaging & Photographic Association or attend one of our workshops or outings, these are some of the people you will get to know. Your Committee is working in the background to ensure that CHiPA is the most collaborative camera club around. We may be a small rural club but we have a lot of heart and our number one aim is to provide you with a fun, social and supportive environment in which to learn about photography and develop your skills.
Should you need to contact CHiPA, please email us.
