Membership


We welcome people new to photography as well as the more experienced. Just come along any Tuesday evening at 7:30, you may attend for two meetings without obligation, and meet the members before deciding if you would like to join.

We do not have the facilities to teach the many aspects of photography, we feel that is best left to the Adult Education Centres, we do however have a wealth of experience in the club that members are always ready to share. There are 15 Competitions throughout the season giving you plenty of opportunity, should you so wish, to have your Prints and/or Projected Digital Images (PDI) appraised by judges from outside the Club.

Members can also attend the following monthly informal meetings that we run for –

Portraiture (on 4th Wednesday) with the Club's studio lights and equipment.

Audio-Visual (on the last Thursday) for those with an interest in producing sequences of images with music and/or commentary.

Digital Imaging (on the 3rd Thursday) to help you get the best out of your camera and computer.

Wildlife & Nature (on the 1st Thursday) We are hoping for ideas on how this group will progress, Organizing days out, help with all camera setting, best camera gear to buy, software options, places to go, help with images for competitions. etc.

Members Evenings (see Programme) held throughout the year are usually more practical and hands-on with opportunities for you to use your own camera.

We hold our Annual Exhibition  once a year enabling you, as a Member, to display your prints to the public.

The Club is affiliated to the Kent County Photographic Association (KCPA) and through them the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB). It is through these two organisations that that we have access to a varied selection of judges and speakers as well as being able to compete in competitions and exhibitions both County wide and Nationally.
