There has never been a more exciting time to take photographs. In the digital era more people than ever enjoy taking and sharing their pictures.
Whether you use a mobile phone, digital or film camera for your photography, we provide a friendly, supportive environment where you will find inspiration as well as good company. We welcome photographers of all ages and experience, from beginners to experienced amateurs and even a few professionals. Visitors and potential new members may attend any of our Activities and can be sure of a warm reception.
