Welcome

Colchester Photographic Society was formed prior to the Second World War to promote and encourage interest in the study and application of photography.

This is achieved by a varied programme of weekly meetings during the club’s season, which is September through to May. It includes visits from a variety of skilled and interesting speakers, practical evenings, competitions, plus discussions and encouragement between members. In addition we usually have some planned outings, especially during the summer, which help to provide continuity and additional opportunities for our members.

From time to time workshops are also provided to help members, particularly those who are new to photography or those wishing to learn a particular skill.

The club takes part in several local and regional competitions with other clubs, with great success over the last few years.

The Society meets on Tuesdays at 7.30 pm between September and May at Christ Church, Ireton Road (off Maldon Road), Colchester CO3 3AU.

Membership is open to all photographers over the age of 18. All new members and guests are assured of a warm welcome.

Please use our search box (top right) to search this site or the web if you are unsure where to find information you may require.
