Friendly & Welcoming

We welcome members of all abilities. Our friendly club atmosphere provides a forum in which your photography can develop and improve both technically and artistically.

Meetings: When & Where?

We generally meet every other Tuesday from late August until late May. Our meetings are held in the Sark room at the St Saviour's Community Centre. The meetings run from 8-10pm. In June & July we organise outdoor photography sessions and social events.
Our club programme has varied events, including competitions, tutorials, lectures and photo shoots with instruction. We cater for all standards and a variety of interests.
