Here’s some more information about the activities of the club. 

The Club Programme: The programme is set at the beginning of the year offering weekly meetings including:

Talks:  A stimulating programme of around 20 talks is arranged throughout the season featuring outside speakers and club members.  Topics include travel, nature, sports photography as well as photo editing and printing techniques.  Smartphone and drone photographs are welcome.  Members’ talent is shared on special members’ evenings.

Competitions:  There are 10 competitions a year, 5 mounted print and 5 projected digital images (PDIs).  They are commented on and judged by qualified photographers invited from outside the club.   We also hold themed competitions and participate in inter-club competitions both across Surrey and nationally.

Showing members’ work: Every member has the opportunity to produce printed or digital images to enter into competitions, whether colour or monochrome.

Our membership includes a mix of skill levels.  Some are beginners with a keen interest in photography, others have qualified as members of the Royal Photographic Society.  There are three categories of skill levels, according to which you feel most comfortable joining:   Standard, Intermediate or Advanced class.

The photographic interests of members are wide, ranging from urban or rural landscapes, nature, wildlife, sport, portraits, macro work, photojournalism, abstract, creative and imaginative images.  Any type of camera, film, digital DSLR, smart phone, drone, even pin cameras are used to create your own images.

Exhibition:  We hold our exhibition annually in All Saints Parish Church, Kingston.   Members are encouraged to enter images in a number of categories, with prizes available.
