Interested in joining our Photography Club?
Meet like minded people who share a passion for taking pictures. We're known as the friendly photographic club and welcome all levels of photographers.
We have a good balance of competitions, lectures, practical member evenings and social events during the season; which runs from September 1st to June.
Many of our members have been with us for years, but we also actively welcome new members who join every year.
Currently we're running our weekly meetings through Zoom but these normally take place in the Main Hall of Stoke Poges Village Centre on Tuesdays at 8pm.
Want to see what it's like being a member?... Then email us and attend two meetings for free before deciding if you want to join.
What you get as a member:
We've had photographers such as Micki Aston speak and this year particularly we've had photographers from across the world giving some amazing talks.
We've organised walks to various parks and places to take photos and learn. From filming at night to just enjoying a social gathering.
From advice to practical workshops where you can experiment with different equipment we've run workshops on camera settings, lighting, colour, mounting and more.
There's a breadth of knowledge from club members who have different cameras and enjoy taking different images. Just ask them.
From set subjects to open competitions, get feedback on your photos. Entering the competitions is not compulsory but many members enjoy viewing each others work.
We have regular socials and have breaks during our weekly meeting so you can catch up and enjoy each others company.
New or existing member, here you'll find all you need from the programme schedule, how to submit an entry and submissions results.

What our club members say
"I've been a member for nearly 2 years and everyone has made me feel so welcome. I use an android phone and point and shoot camera. I've been really amazed at how much I've learnt. That feeling of getting top marks in a competition has been so exciting.
