About us

Established over 60 years    
The Society has always been at the forefront of amateur photography. We have embraced the digital age with an enthusiasm which, combined with members photographic experience, has enabled us to take full advantage of the new technological advances of today’s cameras and computer software.

The enjoyment of taking photographs    
As a hobby whether recording events, nature, landscapes or family snapshots we strive to obtain the best possible results. We encourage competition participation as a good way to learn, but everyone becomes involved at their own pace, and with a compact or DSLR camera, everyone can achieve good results.
