The Society was established in 1938 and has been active in amateur photography ever since.


We have a very varied range of members, whose interests and abilities cover the entire spectrum - from beginners to semi-professional. We are always on the lookout for new members and are particularly interested in people who are just starting photography for the first time. Come along to any of our meetings and share your enthusiasm and experiences with us. We meet weekly during the winter and fortnightly during the summer to see notable photographers' work and learn from other's experiences. 


We have the occasional competition where a visiting judge assesses our entries and hopefully show where we can improve.

You don't have to enter but they're good fun and a excellent way of developing your expertise.

Thinking of joining us? - please come along to one of our Thursday evening meetings at the St Thomas Centre and have a chat with our Chris Mellows. Chris is responsible for welcoming potential new members and will be keen to meet you and answer any of your questions.
