About Us

We meet every Monday at Ardleigh House. Our aim is to encourage the development and enjoyment of photography as a hobby.

With many experienced members of our society, advice can be obtained on both digital and conventional photography. We have different types of evenings including Competitions, Lectures, Club Walks, Practical Evenings and more.

So if you have an interest in photography and you would like to improve your skills, come and visit our friendly group.

Be our guest for a few evenings before you join. We look forward to meeting you. Affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the East Anglian Federation.
